Come to Mike’s House

The Nesmith house is situated high in the Hollywood Hills and is considered one of the most luxurious homes in Hollywood. It was designed by one of the leading architects in the U.S., who lived there himself before Mike and Phyllis bought the home for their own. Since they moved in, they have completely remodeled and redecorated the house to give it warmth and really make it “their” home. Even though Mike’s house is secluded, and is enclosed by bushes, a wall and an electric gate with closed circuit TV—so that all visitors can be screened—you have a special invitation to come along and visit the Nesmiths at home.
