This rather lovely Spanish style house atop Mt. Washington has a couple of claims to fame. Not only is it the former residence of Mrs. Cubbison's Stuffing founder Sophie Cubbison, who helped design the house and lived there with her husband from 1937 to 1953, but the two-story property also gets a shoutout in David Gebhard and Robert Winter's venerable Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles. Subject of a 2007 "Home of the Week" story in the LA Times, the 2,194 square foot residence features three bedrooms, two baths, wood-beam ceilings, wrought iron, original stone floors, Saltillo tile, limestone countertops, two fireplaces, a courtyard with fountain, terraced gardens with citrus and avocado trees, upgraded electrical and plumbing systems, and a detached two-car garage. Sited on a .4 acre lot, it's listed at $1.169 million.
