Nestled on nearly four acres on top of a pristine promontory with its own private, manicured hiking trails, Wolf's Lair is a walled and gated replica of a Norman castle, offering unparalleled views of the Hollywood Reservoir, the Hollywood sign, and Griffith Park Observatory. Originally built in 1927 for Milton Wolf, this singular eight-bedroom compound seamlessly blends history, architectural significance, and natural beauty. The estate's rich history is observed in its coffered ceilings, intricately carved wood, gable windows, and turrets. Wolf's Lair has a storied past: Debbie Reynolds, Marlon Brando, and The Beatles were all reportedly occupants at various times. The guest house was famously redesigned in the 1960s by legendary mid-century modernist architect John Lautner. And recording artist Moby (who sold the estate to the current owner) transformed the guest house into a creative retreat, where he recorded new tracks. This magnificent property additionally features a poolside guest house that seemingly floats above the reservoir, providing a unique and serene escape. Perfect for nature enthusiasts and hikers, Wolf's Lair boasts extensive, manicured trails that wind through the lush grounds. This estate offers a rare combination of seclusion and accessibility to some of LA's best cultural landmarks, nightlife, shopping and cuisine.
