Outpost Estates - A Jewel in the Hollywood Hills

A pristine enclave of about 450 homes once known as “the jewel in the hills”, Outpost Estates is bordered by Franklin Avenue to the south and Mullholland Drive to the north. Runyon Canyon borders it to the west and Cahuenga Boulevard to the east.

The neighborhood roughly covers 1.5 square miles. Charles E. Toberman acquired the land in the 1920s and envisioned the development as “one of the most exclusive and beautiful residential parks in the world”. He only permitted grand Spanish-style homes in the neighborhood and allotted ample space for each estate.

To advertise the luxurious development, Toberman built a towering neon sign with glowing, red letters that spelled Outpost, hoping to steal the spotlight from the neighboring Hollywoodland sign.
