This rambling spread in the hills of Los Feliz was once the home of pioneering real estate developer and founder of the Los Feliz Improvement Association William Mead. Built in 1917 on what was originally a 400 acre parcel of land, the 9,707 square foot residence now occupies a lot of two acres, and features, per the listing, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, formal dining room, library, a living and game room, a guesthouse, staff quarters, and pool with pavillion. While the house, listed at $4.988 million, is a bit, um, rococo for our taste, the views are quite spectacular. More photos can be viewed here.
