This property has been in the family for over 75 years. The charming farmhouse, built in 1902, may be one of the oldest homes in the San Fernando Valley. Moved from Hollywood, over the Cahuenga Pass via horse and carriage, in 1922. Once in it's present location, next to the Los Angeles River, it was part of a functional farm for several decades. The property was named the “Sherman Oaks Garden Triangle” as an homage to the owner, Ernest Giannos’, whose legendary garden was well known throughout the valley – many of the fruit trees are still producing on the property today.
Louise Long, Ernest’s sister-in-law, also located her business here, where it is still run by Nancy Astrachan, Louise’s niece. “Louise Long’s Contouring Studio” was a required stop for famous actresses looking to preserve their faces and bodies for the cameras. The film studios routinely sent their biggest stars there; from Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford, to Raquel Welch, Farrah Fawcett and Jane Fonda. Louise Long’s never advertised but was internationally famous, featured in Vogue Magazine, for the miracles she worked. This corner property is truly a piece of Hollywood and San Fernando Valley history that holds tremendous creative potential.
