This Tudor-style house in Westwood really knows how to make a first impression. Walk up from the street via a curved staircase, cross under a vine-covered pergola, enter the two-story residence, and walk right into a spacious living room with really elaborate wood-framed ceilings. Built in 1933, according to Redfin, and said to be designed by the same Percy Lewis who was the architect of the Fox Westwood Theatre (now the Village Theatre), the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom house has been restored and upgraded from its old-growth oak floors to its kitchen, which now contains fancy appliances and granite countertops. There's also a loft in the kids' room, a built-in booth around one of the many fireplaces, a pool, and a separate "guest apartment" that houses one bedroom and another bathroom. It's all asking $2.995 million.
