Elmer Grey Still Waiting for You in Hancock Park

New, 18 comments

Tennisketball, anyone? Yup, yet another impeccably pedigreed property is having a hard time finding a buyer. This 8,000-square-foot estate on a nearly one-acre lot in Hancock Park was designed by Elmer Grey, architect of the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Pasadena Playhouse, while its grounds were originally planned by Florence Yoch and Lucile Council, the renowned landscape architecture team who designed the plantation garden sets for Gone With the Wind. According to its listing, this is the first time in 35 years the 1925 English Tudor's been on the market, and from the photos, it looks extremely well-preserved. With seven bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, servants' quarters, and a detached guest house, this mansion's got all the makings of an excellent murder-mystery dinner party. It hit the market in July $9.45 million, dropped to $8.95 million in September, and is patiently waiting for the right buyer.---Pauline O'Connor
