Overview

Photos and Description of the Riverside Rancho vacation house rental

Bucolic setting, great for kids, pool and hot tub, extensive grounds, central

Channing House is a spacious 2-bedroom, detached guest house on a private estate in Los Angeles. Once part of Bette Davis’ estate Riverbottom, it is nestled in the equestrian area, which abuts Griffith Park. Just minutes from Hollywood, Los Feliz and the major studios: Warner Bros, NBC, CBS, Disney, Nickelodeon. With our heated pool and bucolic atmosphere, it is a perfect holiday spot and an oasis for work...

The House has a large stylish Moroccan open plan LIVING ROOM and KITCHEN, great round white chandeliers that pattern the white washed walls. The large Moroccan wood dining is bathed in light from the arched windows. 32” flat screen television, set up with both digital cable and Apple TV with Netflix’s library of content. A handmade Moroccan couch (that can also be used as another bed for additional guests) and the original art on the walls make this a great ‘home away from home’

The MASTER BEDROOM looks through arched windows at the fruit orchard and the unique round brickwork and shingled roof of the estate’s gate. It is bright and spacious with a king-sized bed, an all natural organic mattress and a comfortable headboard to snuggle into with your late night novel. A Moroccan chandelier casts soft light patterns on the clear bright walls. Watch the moon rise over the blue foothills of Mount Hollywood.

BEDROOM 2 also has Moroccan lights, dark wood floors, and two comfy twin beds (which can be pushed together as a King bed for couples). The front windows look out toward the Mountains as they turn purple in the evening light.

BONUS ROOM. There is a little entry room to the house. For those who have wanted a little extra space, it has worked as an additional office for some guests with a desk and plenty of outlets – or can be used as a third bedroom for a child in a cot.

The slate tiled BATHROOM has a built in shower room and a stackable washer and drier. The patterned hallway off the living room has the controls for the central heating and air conditioning.

Rivergate is a private, historic equestrian ESTATE. It enjoys massive organic gardens, almost half acre of drought tolerant garden with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, hammocks, shade trees, French Lavender maze for toddlers to learn to walk through, art studio, fire pit, fountain area, fruit orchard, outdoor dining areas… and Wi-Fi throughout.

The Channing House is at the front of the grounds by the orchard and secure off street parking. Named after Margo Channing, Davis’ larger than life character in the 1950 movie “All About Eve,” it is the second largest house available on the estate.

We share the estate with other houses that are available on VRBO 488798 (Dillard’s Pool House) and VRBO 465113 (O’Leary’s Cabin) 712356 Rivergate House, 708660 is the whole estate. It is not uncommon as the sun is setting that we all gather to play or chat in the garden, the park, or in the front orchard. It is a unique place and a little hard to describe, it feels a little like a village on a summer day.

Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, and sirens typical of city living. (I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country)

The neighborhood is upscale and residential, many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, or about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney …).

The stable block at the back of the grounds (original to the Riverbottom estate) abuts Griffith Park, the largest municipal park in America. We are close to four golf courses, Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in the park.

The City is redeveloping the LA River and there are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the famous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out the traffic).

Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events) big box stores are just a few miles away in Burbank and Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and well within walking distance.
