This swellegant manse in Hancock Park was designed in 1929 by the redoubtable Roland E. Coate, Sr., while its beguiling gardens were the work of AE Hanson, landscape architect of Harold Lloyd's estate, Greenacres, and developer of Hidden Hills. Currently home to Anne Crawford, the well-connected "brand ambassador" for fancy shoe and handbag company Roger Vivier, the South Hudson Avenue residence was featured in a 2009 C magazine article (pdf), and its gardens
documented by the Smithsonian Institute. Per the listing, the 6,855 square foot house boasts five bedrooms, six baths, a walnut-paneled library, hardwood and marble floors, and three fireplaces. Sited on a .47 acre lot, it's got an asking price of $3.995 million.
