Privacy in Franklin Hills


On the eastern boundary of Hollywood is a neighborhood called Franklin Hills.  “Hills” is the operative word here.  The hills are steep and the streets are narrow.  Only the most fit would attempt to venture up on foot.  So if it’s privacy you’re seeking, this affluent little haven may be worth a look.

The house pictured above is a new listing at 2000 Mayview Drive.  Built in 1955, it’s described as a mid-century design, with many details faithful to that period.  This 1,111-square-foot house is priced at $799,000, or $719 a square foot. There’s an arroyo between the backyard and the next property down for extra privacy.
