Los Angeles | $1.475 Million
Frank M. Tyler, the architect of this house, designed a number of buildings in Harvard Heights, the historic neighborhood in central Los Angeles where he lived and where this property is. His whimsically detailed variations on the Craftsman theme included shingles, multiple gables and stylish built-ins. Designed for Harvey H. Cox, a real estate agent, this house has been in the same family for the last 110 years and still has some of the original furniture. All hardware and every knob, window screen and curtain rod is original (for the most part).
The property has been well maintained and updated with earthquake retrofitting and solar panels. It is a block and a half north of the Santa Monica Freeway, about five miles west of downtown Los Angeles and close to the growing number of restaurants and other conveniences in the West Adams area. The campus of the University of Southern California is about two and a half miles southeast.
