The life of Teles agent Elizabeth Welchman has been filled with art from the very beginning. A childhood spent with artist parents in an upstate New York 18th century home eventually led her to the lofts of lower east side in 1980’s Manhattan. After graduating with a degree in literature, her eye for business had her looking west, and she eventually settled here in Los Angeles.
These days, Welchman specializes in finding unique spaces for unique artists. She knows that “nothing cookie cutter will do,” and it’s that passion for the special that caught the eye of the LA Times. The prestigious ‘Home of the Day’ section featured Welchman as the rep for a hot property at 2205 Beverly Glen Place.
The home, formerly a cabin in 1910, is now a renovated contemporary property, which perfectly captures Welchman’s sensibilities. Once the home of an architect, the 5 bed, 4.5 bath is perfect for artists of any sort. A sound proofed office makes for an excellent recording studio or writer’s retreat. Not that one needs the soundproofing for extra quiet here. The secluded 4400 square foot home rests quietly in mid canyon, away from, well, everything.
And that just enhances the beauty of the place. A deck for entertaining overlooks a serene yard full of mature trees and even a flowing stream. Anyone who needs a retreat from this retreat is going to have to drive for it. Luckily, one wouldn’t have to go far. UCLA’s Westwood campus is a mere ten minutes away, and one can replace the sound of a babbling brook with a show at the Geffen Playhouse or the hustle and bustle of the line at Diddy Riese. The Hotel Bel Air isn’t far off either, if one needs something a bit more sophisticated than an ice cream sandwich. Though does one ever?
