Architect Carleton M. Winslow, a proponent of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture who completed the Los Angeles Public Library and several Episcopal churches throughout Southern California, built the two-story dwelling as his private residence.
Sharing the exclusivity of the gated Laughlin Park with Cecil B. DeMille’s estate now owned by Angelina Jolie, the home is sited on a large 11,162-square-foot lot, offering enough room for a pool.
Inside, the nearly 100-year-old Spanish stands in well-preserved condition with many of its original architectural details.
Features include high ceilings, wood detailing, original tubs, fixtures and tile work, hardwood floors, wrought-iron banisters, two fireplaces, and a butler’s pantry.
Three bedrooms are located on the upper level along with two bathrooms.
The terrace, decked with Spanish tiles, allows a seamless indoor-outdoor flow from the dining room. With some planning and the right designer and finishes the home, listed for $1,858,900, can return to the glory and ornate beauty of the Roaring Twenties.
