Just a few days ago came the news that the Bel Air estate of the late William H. Doheny Sr. and his wife, Onnalee Olson Doheny, had been listed for sale with a whopping $45 million pricetag. Now, really helping to hammer home F. Scott Fitzgerald's pronouncement about the very rich and how different they are "from you and me," yet another noteworthy property associated with the high society couple has hit the market in what may or may not be a crazy coincidence of timing. That property would be the insanely gorgeous Villa Andalusia.
Located a few doors away from the much-buzzed-about Seyler House on Aberdeen Avenue, the Spanish-Moorish beauty was designed in 1931 by Paul R. Williams for Fred Olson, founder of the Olson's Bakery chain. According to the Los Feliz Improvement Association's Historical Survey, the .88-acre property next belonged to Olson's daughter, Onnalee, and her hubby. It's not clear if the six-bedroom, eight-and-one-quarter-bath residence subsequently traded hands out of the family, but it can now be yours for $8.237 million. LA Home & Style has even more glorious photos.
