The 3 Best Homes for Sale in Hollywood Hills

Posted by Alisa Peterson on Monday, August 31st, 2015 at 10:38pm.

One of the most sought after areas in Los Angeles to live and to buy is Hollywood Hills. The Hollywood Hills have been divided (literally by the 101 Freeway) between Hollywood Hills West and Hollywood Hills East. The Hollywood Hills are highly desired not only because they offer famous neighbors from the numerous celebrity residents; this neighborhood also is steeped in history, offers more seclusion, privacy, and isolation than found in most parts of Los Angeles, has incredible views, and the more western location is convenient to everything in the city from Beverly Hills and the Sunset Strip to Downtown and from the beaches to the studios.

The homes for sale in Hollywood Hills are commanding record breaking prices in the current market with the neighborhood known as the Bird Streets commanding $3000 and more per square foot. Yet, while still within Hollywood Hills West, Laurel Canyon and Cahuenga Pass can offer comparatively affordable prices less than $500 per square foot. And homes on the east side of the 101 will generally sell for less than those on west side of the 101.

I never tire of driving around this neighborhood because the architecture found here, the views, and the serenity of the area. Due to the numerous amazing homes for sale in Hollywood Hills choosing my 3 favorite homes was much harder than I initially thought. After combing through what I have seen recently, I had a list of favorites over 20. So I tried a different approach; I picked 3 wonderful homes that appeal to 3 different buyers followed by all active homes for sale in Hollywood Hills.

8650 Franklin Avenue $7.495M 

8650 Franklin Ave - The 3 best homes for sale in Hollywood Hills West | Sunset Strip
This home sited on a rare double lot will take your breath away. The home is approximately 4200 square feet of new construction in a style that is contemporary and minimalist. The main feature of the home is the view, an incredible city and Downtown view that can be seen from every part of the home. This is the home to throw lavish parties; just make sure guests uber to and from since parking is not the easiest and be ready to have excuses ready to let your guests know when it's time to leave otherwise people would linger all night. This is a home where you will never tire of staring out the window, and you may even forget to unpack the TV. It is hard to find a home of this size and view under $10M in Hollywood Hills, so I do not anticipate it will be available long. 

2500 Jupiter Drive $3.999M 

2500 Jupiter Dr - The 3 best homes for sale in Hollywood Hills West | Sunset Strip
An almost 5000 square feet home on a 28,000 square foot street-to-street lot with walking paths, making it feel like a private park. The home has a unique modern style and incredible layout for indoor/outdoor living and zen-like serenity. This home will bring artistic inspiration to anyone who occupies the space. This is one home that has stayed on my mind as one of the best homes I've seen in Hollywood Hills. 

3500 Multiview Drive $1.89M

3500 Multiview Drive | The 3 best homes in Hollywood Hills West | Sunset Strip
Multiview Drive can sometimes be overlooked by buyers who do not wanted to go past Mulholland Drive. This would be a mistake on their part because this home is a sexy and private oasis. The home is gated with a private 3-car driveway and additional deeded parking on the street. With two bedrooms and easy access to everything Los Angeles has to offer, this home is the perfect Los Angeles pied-a-terre. This home would be ideal for a buyer looking for a second home located beyond the high energy, noise, and bustle of the city but close enough to offer a quick commute. This is a home where a buyer can entertain a few friends with a quiet evening while not having to work about having enough parking for everyone. This home would also make an excellent investment property since the potential rental income compares favorably with the purchase price.

While I think these three homes are fantastic and will appeal to different buyers, there are still many other amazing homes for sale and you can find all Hollywood Hills listings below.
