Only a select handful of regions in Los Angeles offer us the kind of spectacular, jetliner views normalIy reserved for our winged friends in the sky. The Bird Streets, named for its abundance of avian-themed streets, is one such place that continues to command a premium price per square foot, and rightfully so, based on demand alone. Tucked away in the Hollywood Hills and overlooking Sunset Strip, this enclave of only a few hundred properties continues to attract the Hollywood elite looking for unparalleled privacy, stunning views of the Los Angeles Basin and skyline, and beautiful architectural estates.
Tobey McGuire, Leonardo DiCaprio, True Grit producer Megan Ellison and Gateway Inc. co-founder Ted Waitt are among the long list of A-Listers, power players and tech execs who call the Bird Streets their home. The neighborhood also famously provided the setting for the late Beatles guitarist George Harrison, who wrote the iconic song “The Blue Jay Way” after the street he lived on.
Here are two homes currently available in the Bird Streets.
Located at the end of the cul-de-sac in the “Bird Streets” off the Sunset Strip, this redefined Mid Century Ranch features all the glorious views, crisp stylings and indoor/outdoor living you expect from a home in this exclusive enclave. Steps above the street, an entry with reflecting pond and double front doors opens to living/dining areas and sliding walls of glass that lead to the yard, pool and view. This one is not to be missed.
Sited on a lushly-planted lot, this modern villa is the ultimate year-round resort retreat. Rivaling a five-star hotel, and offering a romantic setting, this home pays particular attention to detail and offers stunning city views from almost every room. The home is infused with warmth and light, and all doors open out to either balconies or to the spectacular outdoor lounge/dining area where an alfresco lifestyle is encouraged. If you lived here you’d already be on vacation.
