Located in the coveted Laughlin Park neighborhood of Los Feliz, this vintage 1920s Spanish by Carleton M. Winslow is yearning for someone to return it to its intended glory.
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.
The nearly 100-year-old Spanish stands in well-preserved condition with many 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.
Lined with Spanish tiles, the terrace 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.
