About the property

MidCentury Modern Gorgeous Open-Plan 3 BDRM with POOL and GOURMET KITCHEN!

This house was built in 1953, completely renovated in 2008 to a gorgeous contemporary mid-century home...so sexy, the real estate agents in LA nicknamed it THE MADMEN HOUSE. Check it out to as the main home in the suspense thriller "THE PERFECT HOST" with David Hyde Pierce! Famous actors and professional athletes rent often. Perfect for vacation or short term rental for professional purposes in the very trendy but sleepy village of LOS FELIZ, perfect location to get to the 5 Freeway, the 101 Freeway or downtown in 20 minutes. Easy to Universal Studios, and the 5 Freeway takes you directly to Disney.

This modern luxury designer home is located on a beautiful tree lined street in the foothills of the exclusive Los Feliz neigbhorhood. This ideal location is just minutes from prime city activities and sights yet maintains a sense of privacy and seclusion. PLEASE NOTE: THE MADMEN HOUSE IS NOT A "PARTY" HOUSE, IT SETS IN A BEAUTIFUL RESIDENTIAL AREA OF LOS ANGELES CALLED LOS FELIZ. WHILE YOU ARE WELCOME TO HAVE UP TO 10 PEOPLE AT THE HOME, YOU MAY NOT BE LOUD INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE HOME AFTER 10PM. THINK "THE BIG CHILL" RATHER THAN "ANIMAL HOUSE". You must be 25 or older to rent and a driver's license or passport copy must be sent when reserving the home.

The 3-bedroom home features three bedrooms and three baths in the main house.

The living room is highlighted by a stacked stone gas fireplace and with a turn of a knob, the entire glass wall opens to the pool.

Adjacent to this room is the tiled Lanai that flows right through another glass wall and spills out and around the pool...this wall can also be opened up in which the entire living space becomes a part of the outdoors.

The spacious dining room overlooks the lanai area with fabulous walnut floors throughout. This house is the quintessential entertaining home, yet is private and quiet. All of the glass walls have sumptuous floor to ceiling linen drapes to give you 100% privacy.

The gourmet kitchen has Viking Professional Series appliances including a 6-burner gas stove, wall microwave oven and a Miele Coffee Station. Spacious countertops perfect for prepping & casual entertaining. Chef-grade cookware is included. Morning and evening meals in the dining room can seat 6-8 guests comfortably. The entire living space is an open Mid-Century feel.

The master bedroom has walnut floors, an en suite bathroom with a separate shower and spacious tub. King size bed and flat screen TV, DVR, walk-in closet, and luxurious linens. It shares a private back deck with the third bedroom.

A second bedroom is spacious with Queen Size bed, flat TV, and wall to wall carpeting. This bedroom has it's own 3/4 bath.

A third en suite bedroom has a Queen size bed and is light and playful with it's own Hotel style tiled bathroom, flat screen tv, and opens out to a private back deck shared with the Master Bedroom.

This house maintains all of the charm of the original 1950's design, while having been re-built & updated with all modern amenities. There is wireless Internet throughout. Also is equipped with a security system,.

The home is perfect for someone coming to Los Angeles to work on a film, friends looking for a FABulous vacation spot and families looking for THE place that will keep children of ALL ages happy. A CHILDPROOF FENCE CAN BE INSTALLED AROUND THE POOL FOR AN ADDITIONAL $125 FEE. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS.

Perfect-a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing on every level. Todd, the owner is wonderful to work with and very quick to reply. The house is decorated beautifully, very spacious and open. The kitchen is a made for a chef! The outdoor pool and lounging area was great to relax by each day. The location was Perfect! The property is close to everything yet the house is tucked is a great neighborhood. We hiked to see the sunset and sunrise at the Griffith Observatory-it was only a short walk. We walked to the cute neighborhood of Los Feliz a few times a day-great coffee& bakery shops; restaurants and grocery store. We can’t wait to come back again next year-but this time we will stay longer at this property! Thank you Todd!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Madmen House. We felt right at home as we celebrated Easter here. We love to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our traditional Easter brunch and dinner. The outdoor space provided a great place to hang out and enjoy a sunny California day. A short walk up to the hill to the Griffith Observatory was a good way to get your daily dose of exercise. For our needs the house was perfectly located to our activities and we all were very comfortable in rooms. Thanks for a great stay and we hope to be back soon!

Great place in an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in such a fantastic, safe & beautiful neighborhood and so close to anything you could need - grocery stores, adorable restaurants, hiking, the freeway....it's all like 5 minutes away! The beds are crazy comfy & in fact, my daughter and her best friend said that they were going to miss their bed after we left! We had the pool heated and it was like a dream to get into every day...not so big that you couldn't talk to each other, but not too small either. And the privacy from the surrounding trees makes it feel like a little paradise.

The owner, Todd, was super responsive and very gracious to us the whole time! We will definitely look for this listing again when we are back in the area!!

Thank you for everything Todd!! :)

We were Madmen for a week!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a lovely area. The flow of the house lends itself to three couples staying, with additional guests for meals etc. wonderful location with access to everything, particularly Griffith Park. The owner, Todd, was very responsive on every question or request. We loved the coffee machine. Must get one of those! Everything worked perfectly, which makes for a very successful stay for all!

Totally blown away!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true gem. It's chic but comfy. Spacious and private! Perfect for a nice getaway, and the location is really perfect. Todd is amazing! I couldn't be more pleased with his response time. I'll admit I threw him a couple of curve balls and he was very accommodating. The house felt like my own in that everything was easy to use and immediately accessible. I hated to leave but I will definitely come back again!
