"Won"-of-a-Kind Property with Views in Every Direction

$5,500,000 3595 Wonder View Drive, Los Angeles 90068

Mesmerizing views surround every inch of this elegant custom Mediterranean Hollywood Hills home with commanding two way views of both the L.A. basin and the San Fernando Valley.  

Once owned by Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, it's no "wonder" the legendary children's author gained inspiration from this magical setting among the surrounding exotic shrubs & succulents of the Southern California chaparral.  Virtually every window, balcony & veranda capture a variety of sweeping vistas of the downtown skyline, the Lake Hollywood Reservoir, Palos Verdes Estates, Universal Studios and the Santa Monica & San Gabriel Mountains that embrace the San Fernando Valley below.  

Inside, grand interior spaces seamlessly flow from room to room with effortless access to inviting outdoor terraces & balconies designed by its current owner for both lavish entertaining & comfortable day to day & work from home living.  The open connected floor plan with tray & barrel ceilings, hand-carved wood & stone fireplaces, custom cabinetry, artwork niches & gorgeous stained & leaded glass doors provide a curated blend of architectural details that convey a sophisticated style.  The main level features an entry foyer, formal living and dining rooms plus an adjacent family room with counter that overlooks the gourmet center island kitchen with stone counters & top of the line appliances.  

Two bedrooms & an office also reside on the main level while a grand stair case leads to the upper level library/office, nursery/gym plus the luxurious primary retreat that enjoys splendid painted skies from dawn to dusk. The generous walk in closet, spa like bathroom & private balcony that survey the pool & terraced hillside orchard with 25 specimen fruit trees whisper of a five star resort in Tuscany.  An elevator provides access to all three floors, including the lower level service quarters with its own private entrance.  

The attached two car garage is approached from the stone driveway behind an automatic security gate at the end of a street on top of the hill.  Lushly landscaped & appointed with trickling fountains & potted plants, this one of a kind property offers an opportunity of a lifetime to own an enchanting, romantic & inspiring home - minutes from most major studios, Hollywood, downtown & the Burbank Airport ~ just steps to miles of hiking trails & thousands of acres of nature.
