Ray Kieffer-Designed Mediterranean in Mid-City Returns

New, 43 comments


Regular readers may recall this swellegant 1923 Mediterranean Revival from its last go-round on the market two years ago. Designed by Ray Kieffer, the high society architect who built many Hancock Park and Beverly Hills mansions, as well as the Hollywoodland realty office, the 4,822-square-foot residence occupies a corner lot in the Lafayette Square Historic Preservation Overlay Zone. Among the four-bedroom, three-and-one-quarter bath house's noteworthy features are a two-story rotunda with hand stenciled domed ceiling, wrought iron staircase and stained glass windows, Batchelder fireplace, wedding-cake-plaster ceiling detail, hand-painted doors, elevator, sleeping porch, pool, and koi pond. Previously listed at $1.569 million, the .31-acre property is now asking $1.649 million.
