I LOVE this guest home. I purposely call it a home instead of a house because it just feels that way. It has everything a home has in it. It is light and bright and a joyful environment! It is an all open studio room that is compartmentalized. I tried to think of everything when I remodeled it. There is full kitchen with a 4 burner stove top, and the microwave above it is also a convection oven as well as a steamer. There is a refrigerator and freezer, a washer and dryer, garbage disposal and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking. There is designated pantry tall cabinet, and a kitchen island that doubles as a place to dine or as a workspace. The kitchen has all granite countertops, with a glass backsplash. There is a lovely bathroom, and a bedroom area that hosts a queen bed, and there is 49" flatscreen TV that services the entire home as it is on a swivel arm that can be pulled out and moved any direction. There is high speed internet most premium channels. There is an abundance of electrical outlets. There is air and heat, as well as a ceiling fan for this home's high ceilings. ALL the house is ENERGY EFFICIENT. Every light, down to the light in the refrigerator are LED lights and all the appliances are Energy Star rated. The home is a guest house but I separated my larger home from this guest house so they function like two different properties. The guest house has its own entrance and is privately gated off from the main house so it has its own backyard space that is suited for its size. The neighborhood is Fantastic.
My access to the freeways is great - far enough away to not be near them but close enough to get to them quickly (within 2 or 3 minutes). Sherman Oaks is so central to Los Angeles living. I am near to the greatest grocery stores - Whole Foods, Gelson's, Trader Joe's and Ralph's flagship store that's just a beauty. I two blocks away from an Apple Store and other great shopping. I hike regularly only a couple miles away (10 minutes to get there in my car) and you feel like you are transported right out of LA because you are surrounded only in nature. There is a nearby park and the neighborhood is wonderful to take walks in. And of course there are wonderful restaurants everywhere nearby.
