LA aaroe
For years, even within the LA real estate world, the legendary home called Artemesia was surrounded in myth and mystery. Some thought it had been razed years ago. Others weren’t sure exactly where it was — if it still existed at all. Fortunately, none of the rumors were true. For all these decades, America’s largest Arts & Crafts mansion had been hiding just above Hollywood in its own private forest. And for the last three of those decades, one dedicated owner has been sensitively bringing it back and into the future, step by delicate step. Today, there’s really no way to describe it. You simply have to see it.

LA’s “lost” Arts & Crafts treasure reemerges

It is the largest and one of the finest Arts and Crafts houses ever built. Secluded in an acre and a half of forest in the heart of LA, commanding astonishing views to the ocean from almost every room, it was largely forgotten for years. Now one dedicated longtime owner has completed an award-winning thirty-year top-to-bottom restoration and update —from period interiors and new mechanical and electronic systems to a meticulously restored landscape with original waterfalls and ponds.
Today Artemesia, hidden high above Paramount and the W Hotel, is a timeless, exhilarating private world where hand-tooled mahogany paneling meets high-tech Wi-Fi. The national treasure at 5771 Valley Oak Drive is ready for its closeup: listed by John Aaroe Group at $9,995,000. more »
LA places that creeped moviegoers out LA PLACES THAT CREEPED MOVIEGOERS OUT

Where’s the steepest drivable street in LA? WHERE’S THE STEEPEST DRIVABLE STREET IN LA?

Silver Lake? San Pedro? Nope — Mt. Washington. At a ridiculous 33% grade, Eldred is not only the steepest street in LA, but in California (yes, even SF!) — and the third steepest in the country. Thank heavens they later passed a law limiting grades to 15%. more »
