Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #1044, this unique residence was designed and built by businessman George Haight, whose family helped develop San Francisco, and later owned by actress Ruby Dandridge (mother of Dorothy Dandridge) and thus is known as the Haight-Dandridge House. The .27-acre property last sold in April 2013 for $700,000, a little more than half of what it's asking today.
