Earlier this week, we made the acquaintance of the lawsuit-embroiled Dorothy Chandler estate. Now another grand house once owned by a different member of that prominent family has hit the market. Located behind the gates of Los Feliz's hoity-toity Laughlin Estates, the Spanish Colonial Revival was built for Ralph J. Chandler, a nephew of Los Angeles Times publisher Harry Chandler and vice president and general manager of the Los Angeles Steamship Company. Recently declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, the home was originally built in 1921 and designed by architect Henry F. Withey, with a 1931 addition by Carleton Winslow, known for his work on LA's Central Library. Per the listing, the 5,995 square foot residence features five bedrooms, seven baths, three fireplaces, hardwood and tile floors, "a newer upgraded kitchen, Original Butler's pantry, Formal Dining Room, Original hardware, cabinetry, beautiful period lighting and original glass rondels," a gym/art studio, and swimming pool with hot tub. Last sold in 2009 for $2.5 million, it's now listed at $3.1 million.
