The SpaceThe house is a mid-century California ranch-style home with 2 bedrooms, circular driveway, kitchen, laundry room, pool with patio cover and outdoor seating, and a side yard. The house is fully furnished and very comfortable. It's in a nice suburban neighborhood, yet very close to freeways, shopping and more. Given the large number of inquiries about parties, I'm mentioning here that the house is being offered as a place to stay, and not as a party location. Guest AccessThe house is actually 3 bedrooms. You have access to all of the house, the yard, pool, and circular driveway, except you will not have access to: (1) the locked 3rd bedroom; (2) the two storage closets in the hallway between the bedrooms; and (3) the garage. Interaction with GuestsYes, I'm almost always available by phone or in person--I live 5 minutes away, work 30 minutes away, and my adult son is generally available if I am not. The NeighborhoodIt's a GREAT neighborhood. Put it this way, it's the kind of neighborhood where if you are going out of town you know your neighbors so well you can give just about any of them the keys to your home just in case someone needs to go in for an emergency. It's close to lots of great food, a university, a country club, freeways, places to hike and rock climb (minutes from Whole Foods or Spouts markets, REI, Sport Chalet, Best Buy...Food Truck Friday Nights, movies, 3 major malls, and much more). Getting AroundAs long as you don't leak oil, park in the circular driveway...watch out from the short brick pillars, it's safest to enter from the east driveway and exit from the west so you can see the brick pillars out the drivers window. The Northridge MetroLink Station is 10 min away by car (I prefer the nearby Chatsworth Station), you can take it to downtown, or you can drive 25 minutes and park at the Universal City Station and take the subway to Hollywood or downtown. If you rock climb, the popular Stoney Point formation is 10 min away at the Topanga Canyon exit off the 118 (if that area looks familiar, it's the site of an old movie ranch where lots of Westerns were filmed in the early 20th Century... and Clark Gable, Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, Barbara Stanwick, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and more, all had homes or their country ranches just 5 minutes from the house. Other Things to NoteIt's a quiet neighborhood--some of the neighbors have lived there for decades. If it's the weekend, feel free to enjoy the pool and play some music (you might here neighbors doing the same!)--just in general be mindful that's it's a residential neighborhood.
