Per the Listing: “Long time residence of Unbroken‘s Louis Zamperini available for the first time in over 50 years. One of the first homes in the Hollyridge Park development, property was designed to take advantage of the incredible views found from almost every room. The 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom hillside English Revival “cottage with gabled thatched type roof” evokes the picturesque cottages of rural England. The living room with soaring ceiling and original fireplace is spacious and light filled. The original dining room, paneled by Louie, opens to the sunroom, which offers spectacular views of Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and beyond. This is where he spent most of his time, using it as his office. The eat-in country kitchen features an adjacent sunlit breakfast room. Dual master suites with walk-in closets and separate dressing rooms offer more stunning vistas of the city below. Maid’s quarters and workshop on the lower level complete the home. 1,400 square feet of attic space can be used for additional expansion. Meandering pathways and terraced gardens with playhouse can be found on the over 15,000 square foot lot. Semi-private driveway and gated entry ensure privacy and security. Pick up the torch and create your own half-a-century dream.”
