Peeking out seductively from behind a canopy of greenery, this lovely 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival is tucked into the Hollywood Hills at 2267 El Contento Drive.

Measuring 2,205 square feet, the two-story residence contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms on its lower level, and the living room, dining room, kitchen, and sun room on the top floor. While the home’s kitchen and bathrooms have been recently updated, it’s still got an abundance of vintage character details, including original hardwood floors, wrought-iron sconces and railings, arched arcades, French doors, painted tile, and elaborately carved woodwork.

Adding considerably to the property’s desirability quotient are its tropical resort-like grounds. Along with a covered lounge with built-in seating, a flagstone patio with hot tub, and a sizable wooden deck for dining al fresco, there’s a deluxe cabana replete with fireplace, sleeping loft, and entertainment system.

Last sold in 2016 for $2.55 million, the home is now on the market with an asking price of $2.2 million. Tori Horowitz of Compass has the listing.


Built in 1927, the home’s period details include painted tile and an elaborately carved front door.
