Welcome to Las Orquideas, a historic Andalusian garden village built in 1929 by Wilfred Buckland, and immaculately restored by Howell & Padgett in 2019, whose previous works include the iconic Torre del Moro condos in Beachwood Canyon. Las Orquideas perfectly retains that signature glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age while offering modern and luxurious amenities of a new construction property. Perched in the foothills of the Hollywood Hills, this compound has five villa-like structures consisting of nine units and a flex space. This whimsical complex was designed in the early days of Hollywood's Golden Era by Wilfred Buckland, Cecil B. DeMille's frequent art director. Buckland, the original owner, developed the property as a replica of a Spanish hill town with ascending walkways, connecting gardens, and intimate plazas. An abundance of lush mature landscaping lines the stone walkways. Each villa-like structure is covered in coral-colored stucco and features original architectural period details such as interior arches, beamed ceilings, fireplaces, wood floors, and stained glass. Lofty ceiling heights and oversized windows bring in much natural light. A remodel of each unit was completed several years ago with strict attention to retaining each unit's strict authentic integrity and character. Modern updates include custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and an in-unit washer and dryer. Several units feature private patios or balconies overlooking Hollywood Blvd. and the city. Las Orquideas is a Mills Act property with a financial incentive for historic preservation, offering property tax savings for owners who invest in rehabilitating historic buildings. Las Orquideas is part of the Golden Era Collection, four impeccably restored multifamily complexes in Los Angeles.
