ABOUT BRENTWOOD ARTIST FARMHOUSE
Welcome to my home.
Surrounded by century-old trees, decorated with a mixture of styles such as Belgian, Provencal, Japanese, Shaker, French Industrial, 60’s Design, English Traditional and Artist’s Loft, this unexpected 'resort-like' farmhouse is located in the heart of Brentwood (Los Angeles) just minutes away from Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Bel Air, and Westwood ... not to mention 'Brentwood Village' where you will find charming shops and restaurants!
The house is located less than 5 miles from the beach, the heart of UCLA, Royce Hall, The Broad Stage Performing Arts Center, Temescal Gateway Park, Will Rogers State Historic Park and Polo Field, etc.
From swimming in the large pool to playing Petanque in the back yard, from biking or hiking in the canyons to visiting the neighbor’s horses, this property is made for cozy dinners and playing games with friends and family (some games include Uno, Chinese Checkers, Backgammon, Go, Taboo, Balderdash, Puzzles, Cards, and a few more). There are 8 sets of Petanque boules for you to use, as well as a few tennis rackets and tons of tennis ball (there are multiple free-access tennis courts around the city). There is also a complete Badmington set for 10 people ...
For the active types and professional athletes, you are minutes away from The Brentwood Country Club (Exclusive Golf Club), The Riviera Country Club (one of LA's oldest and most exclusive private golf/tennis club), Will Rogers Park (Polo brunch anyone?), and Mandeville Canyon Road which is LA's premier destination for bikers training for 'The Tour de France', Triathlon, and other bike races.
With newly planted cooking herbs, berry bushes (blueberry, raspberry, goldberry, blackberry) , citrus trees (grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange), fig trees and pomegranate trees … if you're lucky enough to come at the right season … you’ll be blessed with organic fruits. You will not believe you are in Los Angeles!
Whether you are a photographer, a chef, a musician, an artist, an author, an architect, a designer, a film person, an entrepreneur, a business man, a family … this peaceful home – full of charm and “esprit” - will feed your inspiration. You’ll never want to leave.
Except for a very rare and occasional use of bleach, the house uses only non-toxic, eco-friendly and bio-degradable cleaning products, as well as recycled paper products. And that goes for the garden as well. The only pesticides are lady bugs and snail-eating snails.
A brand new whole-house water filter makes the water feel and taste delicious from any faucet.
2 super comfortable semi-firm natural latex TWIN mattresses, 2 firm memory foam TWIN mattresses, 1 super comfortable semi-firm natural latex KING mattress, and 1 semi-firm QUEEN foam mattress ... all brand new as of 2012.
I also have 2 TWIN extra firm non-toxic soy-based mattresses on standby ... any guest over 8 sleeping at the house will be charged $50 per night per person.
There is a professional massage table (and special sheets), two exercise balls, a Chi-machine, a Vibrational machine, and a few other gadgets at your disposal ... (upon request).
Thieves and other organic and therapeutic essential oils are diffused in the house on a regular basis to keep the air clean. Thieves is a combination of essential oils that are highly antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungus, antibacterial, anti-infectious and so forth.
Keyboards, remote controls, phones and knobs cleaned w/ alcohol after each individual stay.
The pool is heated for your pleasure.
1 PC 'courtesy Laptop' for your convenience ... so you can call long distance on a certain free website, access your various social networks, do research and access your emails ...
Unlimited National calls (US only)
There is high speed wireless internet in the whole house, but if you prefer, it can be unplugged and there is a DSL cable in every room.
There is a 32" Television in the living room ONLY, a multi-zone DVD player, and a DVR recorder that can record up to 200 hours. Cable channels include HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, CNN, BRAVO, and all the basic cable channels such as E!, MTV, VH1, MSNBC, FOX, ON-DEMAND, etc...)
Magazine Subscriptions include Los Angeles Magazine, The New Yorker, Time, Vanity Fair, Dwell, Angeleno, People and TV Guide.
1 Extra Large BBQ & 1 small BBQ are both available for your convenience. You'll just have to buy the charcoal ... (please do not use chemical fluids).
And more surprises ...
DISCLOSURE: There are NO lights in the pool or around the petanque court.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you in my own little 'LA sanctuary'.
