Casa Amarilla is 4,500 sq ft. Oliver Goldstick describes the estate as both intimate and grand. It has three stories and offers breathtaking views of the city. It’s been his home for 25 years, and provided a sanctuary for Goldstick and his family during the pandemic.
Open airy rooms are the main theme of the home. Large floor to ceiling windows are found throughout the home. It also has neutral colored walls, white trim, and rich hardwood floors.

It has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms total. The highlight of the home is the master suite. The master bedroom suite is 1,000 sq ft, and spans an entire floor. It has large white columns and a vaulted ceiling.

Casa Amarilla Exterior and Grounds
The exterior of Casa Amarilla is misleading. Oliver Goldstick says he loves that the home is like a secret. From the exterior, you don’t realize the space and floors that the home has. When you step inside, it’s like entering a new world.
The home has a terrace and several balconies that allow you to take in the breathtaking view. On a clear day, you can see Catalina Island. The main terrace has a terra cotta tiled floor and concrete walls. A wicker sofa and wooden coffee table complete the earthy theme.
The swimming pool has a secluded look and feel thanks to the lush landscaping that surrounds it. The 40-ft pool deck is made of stone tile. Old-fashioned lanterns line the sides of the pool. Wooden lounging furniture provides comfort while beating the L.A. heat.
Among the lush landscaping is a Yurt. It is currently used as a yoga studio and gym.
