West Hollywood is one of the most vibrant cities in the entire nation. Founded in 1984, “Weho” has become the LA hotspot for restaurants, shopping and it’s glamorous nightlife. Located dead center in this fabulous city lies 8562 West Knoll Dr. – La Villa de Torre.
Situated on a charming bluff directly above Santa Monica Blvd., this 4-level condominium is seconds away from the best that West Hollywood has to offer. Wake up and stroll down to Starbucks for your morning coffee or across the street to the gym. Perhaps you would like to have a healthy lunch at Koo-Koo Roo or pick up a snack at Trader Joes? All within walking distance. Yogurt, tanning, floral shops, bars, fine-dining and even the world famous Sunset Plaza are all at your disposal without even needing to find a parking spot. You do not get much better than this.
Once you enter the gated courtyard of this Mediterranean styled complex, you feel as if you are transported to a hillside Italian village. Taoromina, Sicily perhaps? As you pass dozens of potted trees and flowers you arrive at the private back-corner unit #11. When entering the unit you immediately notice the 2-story living room with dual balconies and romantic fireplace. Architecturally stunning, you realize this is not a typical condo. The kitchen features beautiful granite counters, white appliances and plenty of cabinet space.
Down one level lies the sleeping quarters. Two side-by-side bedrooms each have their own bath. Once again balconies are in each bedroom which allow you to adorn them with potted plants and trees for a woodsy view.
Upstairs is a loft with office space and room for an extra daybed for lounging or guests. Gaze out the window and view the downtown skyline and the bustle of Santa Monica Blvd., all while remaining quiet and peaceful.
One of the most special parts of the unit is the private rooftop deck that overlooks the Century City skyline. Complete with a wet bar, it is the perfect place to entertain, reflect or catch some of Southern California’s famous golden rays.
Security is top notch, as you must enter a gated parking structure and then a private 2-car garage with direct access into the unit. Extra storage and a laundry room also lie at this level.
Whether you are looking for a place to call home or a ‘pied e terre’ in the middle of one of the hippest cities in the world, La Villa de Torre offers the best and most convenient way to enjoy it. A rare offering in a building that many deem to be one of the best finds in West Hollywood.
