Nestled in the Hollywood foothills, like the Andalusian hill towns that inspired it, Las Orquideas is a collection of five villa-like structures housing nine unique residences and one flex space. Wilfred Buckland, Cecil B. DeMille’s art director and the original owner, designed the property for himself as a replica of a Spanish hill town, with ascending walkways, connecting gardens, and intimate plazas. The entire complex has been immaculately restored by the design team of Howell + Padgett, honored for their restoration of Torre del Moro in Beachwood Canyon. If ever there was ever a pride-of-ownership asset, Las Orquideas is it. The 9-residence compound offers the style, character and rich details of a landmark historic property with the modern amenities of new construction. The Mills Act building can be delivered fully vacant, providing endless opportunity to a visionary investor. A Hollywood starlet reborn.
