About this space

*ALL RATES ARE CALCULATED HOURLY AND BY OCCUPANCY, PLEASE INQUIRE FOR RATES* Designed by noted architect Henry Harwood Hewitt in 1925, this Historic Old Hollywood estate is perched high on a hilltop at the edge of 4,300 acre Griffith Park in los feliz overlooking the ocean, mountains, Griffith Observatory & the LA skyline. Romantic, classic, magical, breathtaking. Welcome to the Villa Calabria, a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Mediterranean escape in historic Los Feliz. A magnificent historic Old Hollywood Estate with an Italian Villa aesthetic in the Los Feliz Hills. Exterior terraces on three levels float above extensive lush tropical gardens, staircases, archways, italian marble statues, a swimming pool with arching fountain jets and an mind-blowing view. The property could pass for an Italian Riviera, Lake Como or Tuscan country Villa. It has been represented as all 3 in Hollywood films. Most recently in the 2015 "Entourage" movie as Jeremy Piven's hotel overlooking the Amalfi Coast and Positano. The views east look like the rolling hills of Tuscany. The views west are of the Pacific Ocean and Griffith Observatory. The views south, downtown L.A. The Villa was designed by noted architect Henry Harwood Hewitt in 1925 and the current owner designed and added the period-loyal swimming pool. Villa Callabria has also been a location for many film and photography shoots. Can be used as a hotel, restaurant, cafe or mansion for purposes of filming. This Villa was also home to English film director James Whale during the making of his four classic films: Frankenstein (1931), The Old Dark House (1932), The Invisible Man (1933) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Director Whale was the subject of the 1998 Academy Award winning film 'Gods and Monsters". he dreamy 1998 film "Gods and Monsters", based on a novel originally titled "Father of Frankenstein", is a daring biographical interpretation of the inner life and imaginings of Whale at the end of his life. Both Sir Ian McKellan and Lynn Redgrave, of the English acting dynasty, received Oscar nominations for their work on the film. key words: Mediterranean, Tuscan, Spanish revival, pool, Spanish tile, historic, subway tile, marble, brass, gourmet kitchen, eclectic, 1920s, artistic, archways, stucco, swimming pool, fountain, views
