Registered with the ‘National Registry of Historical Places’, Whitley Heights is the hidden jewel of old Hollywood. One of the first celebrity neighborhoods, Whitley Heights was home to such movie stars as Rudolph Valentino, Jean Harlow, Charlie Chaplin, Bette Davis and Gloria Swanson. Today the neighborhood is home to modern celebrities and sits square in the center of the revitalized entertainment capital.
Perched on a bluff overlooking the landmark Hollywood sign and the famous Hollywood Hills, 6755 Wedgewood Place gracefully remains true to her roots. All of her character left in tact, the home is a testament to the glorious 20’s.
Entering through the front gate you are immersed into a private front yard with grassy flat pad, gardens, a fountain, and room for a pool. Glancing up towards the house, a faint whisper of yesteryear fades into modern elegance as you ascend the steps to the front door.
Inside the spacious 5 bedroom & 3 bath home, a complete renovation has recently been completed.
