Soak up some old Hollywood glamour at this elegant home in Tinseltown’s Franklin Village neighbourhood. Housed in a historic building that was once a haunt for the city’s most artistically inclined, there’s a definite feeling of luxury living here, with boutique hotel-style amenities combined with the freedom of having your own stylish studio. Inside your home, Art Deco-inspired furnishings create a lavish first impression, with blush coloured chairs and a sunny window seat inviting relaxing mornings with your coffee and a good book, as well as a sophisticated desk space catering to any work needs you may have. The kitchen, meanwhile, is retro-chic with an old-school cool box-looking fridge and a bistro-style table and chairs to get the day started in style. When you’re not hanging out in your luxe pad, take advantage of the myriad amenities at your disposal. Enjoy cool dips in the communal saltwater pool, take part in poolside yoga and pilates classes, work up a sweat in the on-site gym (a personal trainer and a masseur are on hand) or relax in the serene Renaissance-inspired garden. Evenings call for drinks in the plush shared lounge or up on the shared rooftop terrace, which also hosts outdoor movie nights with the backdrop of the Hollywood Sign in the distance. When you’re not indulging your home's five-star living, go out and explore the sights. You’re just a fourteen-minute stroll from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a ten-minute drive from the Griffith Observatory.

About Franklin Village

In the 80s and 90s there was something of a trend to affix the word “village” to many neighbourhoods and streets of Los Angeles (Fairfax Village, Larchmont Village, Los Feliz Village, and Virgil Village among them). A stretch of Franklin Avenue also received this treatment and Franklin Village was born.
