In Place: Mount Olympus

The exclusive Hollywood Hills community of Mount Olympus, just north of the Sunset Strip and east of Laurel Canyon Boulevard above Laurel Canyon, is known for its lofty location and sweeping views. For Hollywood stars, international jet-setters and movie executives, it’s high on the list of desirable places to live in LA, and homes here have been seen in movies of their own.  It’s a relatively short drive to West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, the San Fernando Valley, downtown LA, LAX and the beaches.

Streets in this prestigious enclave are named for the heroes of ancient Greece, including the twelve gods of Olympus. And on Hercules Drive, a stunning contemporary home was recently listed at $7,900,000 by John Aaroe Group. The view takes center stage in this incomparable estate. Every aspect of the architecture has been planned to make the most of the sweeping canyon and city-to-ocean views — sunlit by day and sparkled by night.

This one-of-a-kind residence has been completely remodeled and re-envisioned with a wide-open floor plan, surrounded by Fleetwood doors and walls of glass that blur the line between inside and out. On one side, the spacious family room flows seamlessly to resort-style outdoor seating, a mirror like infinity-edged pool, and a glowing fire pit. On the other, it transitions to an ultra-modern chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a vast center island. Upstairs, the master suite is a restful haven inspired by ultra-luxe hotels, with a radiant fireplace, a stunning walk-in closet and a master bath that overlooks the city beyond. View-framing Fleetwood doors open to two more outdoor seating levels with spectacular vistas.

This one-of-a-kind treasure epitomizes the finest in luxury, moments from both the heart of Sunset Strip.
