Architect Alfred Rosenheim moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 1903 to oversee construction of his downtown Hellman Building (now lofts), and around 1908 he designed and built this six bedroom house for himself in Country Club Park. The city historic-cultural monument (and Mills Act qualifier) includes a three-story main house and a detached ballroom, which was "formerly a chapel" and is "currently used as a recording studio." The house is decked out in Tiffany, with stained glass windows, light fixtures, leaded-glass display cases, and "a museum-quality set of Tiffany glass doors," and has a formal dining room, six Batchelder tile fireplaces, and a solarium, because turn of the century architects knew how to live. The Rosenheim house has been on and off the market since 1999, according to Redfin. It was listed in January 2009 at $7.5 million, according to Ugly Angel, took a break in April 2010, and is now back again and asking just $4.5 million.
