Looking for a private setting, where both yesterday and today have been seamlessly combined? Then look no further than this architecturally breathtaking shingled craftsman that was once home to a star of the original Ben Hur.

This bungalow, situated at the foot of the Hollywood Hills, was originally built in 1911 as a hunting lodge for Francis Bushman, a movie star who, at the height of his career, was named as the most handsome man in the world.

Placed on roughly 2/3 of an acre, the home now features three bedrooms and three full baths in its more than 2,500 square feet of living space. The high, beamed ceilings in the main living area offer a spacious feel. You will also find an office / library, enclosed breezeway, and a sizeable eat-in kitchen which features newer professional grade appliances.

The tall, mature hedges, pines, and palm trees in the front yard offer a shield from view by passersby. And, while there is not an in-ground pool in the yard, there is definitely sufficient space for one.

Located at 2217 Canyon Drive in the Hollywood Hills, this home is currently listed at $2.995M. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
