Once upon a time…in the midst of the wooded hills, a fabled cottage stood. Reminiscent of the ye olde English countryside, 2966 Passmore Dr. breathes an air of vintage European architecture into a modern Hollywood Hills neighborhood. Graced with 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths and 2,736 sq. feet, this 4-level gated home is sure to impress while offering plenty of living space. The home features a charming living room with astonishingly high coved ceilings, fireplace with brick accents, gleaming hardwood floors and a private reading cove. The dining room faces an outdoor patio with stunning views of the forested canyon and mountains. The cozy kitchen has a classic feel with updated stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom is located on the top level of the home which utilizes the best views on the property. An updated bathroom tastefully incorporates cobalt colored tiling and a pedestal sink. On the very lower level of the home, a large room can be used for either an additional family room or bedroom. Having its own entrance, allows for multiple uses.There is also a large work room outfitted with workbench, multiple storage rooms and a full basement with French doors that look out onto the pea gravel patio and fountain — perfect for a home gym, wine cellar or media storage. Although the home is vintage, most of the major systems of the property have been updated including plumbing, electric, floors, heating and air, sound system, tankless water heater, and earthquake retrofitting. The grounds of the property are truly memorable. Situated on a 9,500 sq. foot lot, mystic pathways lead to multi-level entertainment areas. Choices abound from a front-bricked courtyard, to a stone & pebble dining bay with strings of lights dancing and flickering above your head. Perhaps a stroll to the bubbling spa or catching a nap on the peaceful hammock deck that faces up at the towering manor is in order? You make the choice. On your way back, just be sure to pick some fruit from one of the many trees which include oranges, plums, apricots, lemons, limes and avocados. Rarely do homes with such unique character and specially placed lots present an opportunity. With architecture steeped like the rich teas of a forgotten English kingdom, a storybook classic will elevate your lifestyle to a new dimension. Fairytales do come true.
