Just Sold: 8180 Mannix Drive, The Hollywood Hills – List: $1,499,000/Sale $1,485,000

I am pleased to announce the sale of a very special listing of mine, 8180 Mannix Drive in the heart of majestic Laurel Canyon. This was one property that was appreciated by all who walked through it. From Cocktails at Twilight to the Carmageddon Pool Party (the best weekend ever to drive around Los Angeles), I have to say that I enjoyed every moment spent in this home. I want to give a heart felt acknowledgement to my long time client (the seller) who put so much love and thought into every detail of this property. It shined through 100% and was not lost on anyone. You truly created a masterpiece and I was honored to have the privilege to represent such a fucking fabulous piece of real estate (pardon the language, but there is just no other adjective powerful enough to describe it).


For those of you who live in Laurel Canyon or within a 1 mile radius of the property in 90046, this sale has single handidly raised the comps for the entire neighborhood. Prior to our closing, the blended sold average was $513/per square foot with an average days on the market of 47 (short sales included and based on a market analysis courtesy of the MLS) . At just 1701 sq ft per the public records, 8180 Mannix Drive went into escrow after roughly 15 days on the market and sold at a jaw dropping $873/sq ft. Laurel Canyon, consider yourself injected with a Hugh Hefner sized dose of real estate Viagra courtesy of Rich Kids Real Estate! Just briefly reviewing the numbers, this also tops prime Sunset Plaza/Doheny Estates section of the hills as well as Beverly Hills on a blended average price per square foot basis!

Congrats to my seller, a very loyal and long time member of the Rich Kids family!!!!

No expense was spared on this completely renovated oasis quietly nestled in the hills above Sunset Blvd. Jaw dropping, panoramic city views of the entire Los Angeles basin are showcased explosively front and center from every main room throughout this sleek, modern residence. While taking a dip in the heated saltwater infinity pool & spa, one has the option to marvel at the water seamlessly spilling over into the lush hillside or to change direction and gaze at the glittering city lights which are easily seen through this airy, open ended floor plan. At the heart of the home is a gourmet chef’s kitchen featuring gleaming stainless steel Viking appliances and a discretely tucked away Fisher Paykel Dishdrawer Washing System. Enjoy fine dining beneath a decadent, twinkling Swarovski Crystal light installation or lounge in the expansive living room complete with fireplace and an outdoor balcony accented with modern, architectural elements. As this this perfect Hollywood dream comes to a close, retire to one of three sumptuous bedrooms. The master bedroom has an additional balcony overlooking the cityscape and a grand, voyeuristic bathroom tastefully done in crisp white Carrara marble. Take a long soak in the separate tub or enjoy amenities that can be shared with a partner or “guest of the evening” such as multi headed steam shower, dual vanities, and a private water closet allowing those more intimate moments to remain just that. A second bedroom offers up views with a large picture window and another ornate en suite bath, while a third room is perfect for either guests, family, or an office. Surround sound speakers are piped throughout the entire house and outside pool area with in room volume control so that “when you get that feeling…”, the mood can be felt anywhere in the house. A large two car garage complete this masterpiece of glass, chrome, wood, and steel.

For those who are looking for a second home or live the jet set lifestyle and travel often, viewing your home is just a tap of an Ap away with your smart phone. Video cameras surround the exterior and pool area if only to make your friends in other cities jealous of what a sweet home you own.
