Escape to country living in the Studio City hills on a half-acre+ lot. The home features a gourmet kitchen with a large island and an open floor plan, ideal for gatherings.In 2008, noted architect James Heimler re-designed and expanded the house, transforming it into two en-suite Master bedrooms and living areas. The connecting entrance hall is bathed in light provided by a dramatic display of clerestory windows. Mature landscaping abounds; the back yard is a gardener's paradise featuring citrus trees, spa, koi pond, and dog run. Electrical power is augmented by an array of solar panels.For artists, a large, high-ceilinged dream space with a separate entrance can morph into a recording studio, film stage or billiard room. This bonus area has potential to become an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU).This Fryman adjacent home is minutes to Carpenter Avenue School, boutiques, restaurants and markets.
