Via Curbed LA: This 1926 English Tudor home sits high in the Hollywood Hills, about half a mile from the Mulholland Highway hiking trail to the Hollywood Sign. According to the listing, the two-story property has almost 3,000 square feet of living space on a “rare double lot” of over 19,000 square feet. English Tudor features include the turret, which encompasses both the entryway and an upstairs dressing room. The home also has original wrought iron railings and banisters and is surrounded by wooden patios and winding paths that lead to well-manicured gardens. There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-car garage, and an “updated cook’s kitchen.”
Tudor revival homes, inspired by English medieval architecture during the Tudor period, started gaining in prominence throughout Europe in the late 1800s. From the Los Angeles Office of Historic Resources (PDF): “The first Tudor Revival buildings in the United States were built in the late 1890s. In Los Angeles, the first Tudor style buildings were built in the early 1900s, and the style was popular through the 1920s.”
