MAP & SHORT HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD DELL

  A little-known hillside community, much like its sister neighborhood, Hollywoodland, the Hollywood Dell was developed in 1910 after avocado and orange farmers gave up and sold their orchards to real estate developers, who primarily filled the neighborhood with similar Mediterranean and European-style homes, similar to those found in Hollywoodland.    The Dell, as it was originally known, was named after an active brook that ran from what is now the Lake Hollywood Reservoir to the end of Franklin and the Cahuenga Pass. The Dell Brook, which is more like a stream now, still exists on a much smaller scale, and travels through a house on Holly and San Marcos that was once owned by actress Brooke Adams.    As with many LA County neighborhoods on hillsides, the privacy afforded by the secluded location of the Dell appealed greatly to celebrities looking to retreat from the public eye, as well as many bootleggers, gamblers, and even a few gangsters that at one time or another made the Dell their hideout.    Voted one of the “10 Best Neighborhoods You Have Never Heard of” by Los Angeles Magazine (December 2004), and written up in Angeleno magazine (October 2003), the Hollywood Dell is a unique bit of paradise within mere minutes of the heart of Hollywood.    -Courtesy of hollywoodhillshomes.com & hollywooddell.com
