8001 Hemet Pl, Hollywood Hills

Celebrity home in the Hollywood Hills is ready to turn the key over to a new legend! This hillside Mediterranean villa, recent home to its longtime resident, comedian/actor/author Richard Lewis and former residence of actor Eddie Albert, along with screenwriters and directors, was built in the magical Hollywood year of 1926 – The same year that the nearby Sunset Tower and Chateau Marmont hotels opened their doors to fame, glory and gossip. Tucked away in a bedrock hill in Laurel Canyon, the pulse of Hollywood from Chaplin to Hendrix to celebs du jour, surrounds this home. If only walls could talk! Open-air living room with full wet bar; Spacious formal dining room; Eat-in kitchen with stainless steel Gaggenau/Miele/Subzero appliances; and a magnificent media room/lounge. On its ‘penthouse level’ is a full master retreat with spectacular city views and separate office/sitting room. For visitors, an additional, private first floor guest suite with attached bath. Several terraces, beautiful hardwood and tile floors, air-conditioning, 2 car garage plus extra off-street parking space. On a historic block, located at the end of a quiet cul de sac, yet within moments of the Sunset Strip. 8001 Hemet Place is a wondrous, Hollywood-cool gem for those seeking character, space and an ideal, convenient location!
