Old Hollywood in Beachwood Canyon Has Rumors in the Walls

New, 23 comments

"Rumored to be built by the infamous Howard Hughes," says the listing for this two bedroom, one and a half bathroom house. Oh Los Angeles, where everything built before 1970 had a contract at Paramount at one time or another. This one was built in 1923 and is right on Beachwood. It has "magnificent mythological lovers stone statues, also including a lion," and "Beautiful arched paned windows and French doors throughout, a Batchelder Fireplace, unique decorative pillars, small balconies, curved roof tiles, stucco exterior walls, flowering urns, and lots of natural greenery." Like yesterday's small West Hollywood house, the listing call this a pied-a-terre--is this a new trend? The house went on the market in February asking $1.15 million and has been scratched down to $989,000.
