Sometimes the best gifts come in small packages. That definitely is the case with the homes featured in this year's Hollywood Home Tour, which showcases five cozy homes that pack a big interior design punch. Now in its 27th year, this treasured tour features a candlelight option on April 20 and a traditional-style tour on April 21-22. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online or at any of the tour homes on the day of the tour for $20.
This stone embellished 1924 construction features three bedrooms and two bathrooms; however, many may recognize it for its guest quarters, which were once the office of well-known family and child therapist Alan Goldman.

A favorite aspect of the home is this cozy sitting area with its unique, high ceilings and gorgeous stained glass windows, which are a prominent and priceless design feature throughout the property.
427 Monte Vista
The owners of this 1935 construction loved the Hollywood Heights neighborhood so much that when faced with the dilemma of needing a bigger house for their growing family, they decided to take their home to the studs and expand. The original two-bedroom, two-bathroom home that measured in at 1,408 square feet is now a four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home measuring in at 2,500 square feet.

Notable upgrades included vaulting the ceiling and adding two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Although a lot of the interior is shiny and new, the fireplace and hardwoods are original.
602 Monte Vista
This 1932 construction, located on a corner lot, was snagged by its owner 18 years ago when friends convinced him to drive by and take a look. It was in quite a state of disarray and has undergone three renovations. Some additions include beams to the ceiling, sliding glass doors to the exterior doors, and opened archways in the main living area.

The latest home project was the addition of a backyard entertaining area and swimming pool. The owner says he cooks for his friends almost every weekend, and so a killer outdoor area was a must for enjoying the great outdoors.
6915 Santa Monica
Architect Eddie Maestri took this 1938 bungalow from drab and dated to drop-dead gorgeous in 2011, just in time for the home's current owners to swoop it off the market. In fact, the "before" pictures are still what remains online when you Google this property.

The designer kept the beautiful art deco fireplace, but that’s about all you’ll find of the original home's vibe. It's got a fresh flow and light and bright decor mixed with fun prints.
The current owner is only the third owner of this home, built in 1940. Despite green shag carpet greeting her upon move-in, she was delighted to find original hardwoods underneath.
6942 Lindsley (Continued)
Eventually the owner moved out for a year to complete a larger renovation, which included an updated kitchen, master suite complete with a dreamy bathroom, and more. Don't miss the cool way that the living room opens to the backyard porch.
