"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.
