In his Brief Encounter series of short blogs on fabulous homes Nick Churton of Mayfair International Realty takes special a look at houses that delight, excite and inspire.

1877 Rising Glen Rd,
Sunset Strip, California

If you like contemporary homes with a bit of show biz thrown in you are going to love this one. High up in one of the prized West Hollywood Hills’ canyons that rise, finger-like, above Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills, this glorious retreat has real Hollywood pedigree. The home was once owned by actor/director Ryan Philippe after his split with Reece Witherspoon.

At night LA spreads out below like a cloth of a trillion lights. It is the quintessential Tinsel Town view. By day, bathed in razor-sharp Californian sunshine, the house unveils its very own fine pedigree – brilliant design making the best of magnificent position. It makes the heart sing. Which of course is what great architecture should do.

Hollywood ‘A’ listers please note: the house is roughly equidistant from Universal Studios and Rodeo Drive – making it perfect for a healthy work/play balance.

Oh, and if you like the fabulous Minotti furniture – and who wouldn’t? – this is also available through a bit of further negotiation.
