Rising above Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood is this panorama view of very hip homes clinging to the sloping landscape. Many have been there for the past century, except when heavy rains cause a few to slide down into the busy traffic on Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards.
There are current movie and music stars who live in the Hills, and in the distant past such luminaries as Errol Flynn and Marilyn Monroe dwelt there. When I first lived nearby in the 1950s, they sold for an average of $20,000. You may be able to nab one today for a mere $1.5 million.
