Subdivided for development in 1911, Windsor Square was planned to be the most exclusive neighborhood in Southern California and the largest upper-class tract ever marketed in Los Angeles. Designated a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2004, the neighborhood contains approximately 1,100 residences, many of which were designed by the top architects of the day. Take for instance, this stately manor on South Windsor Boulevard at 2nd Street. Erected in 1922, the 6,228-square-foot Italianate-style house was designed by Walker & Eisen, the renowned architectural team behind such local landmarks as the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the Oviatt Building, the Fine Arts Building, and the Gaylord/HMS Bounty. Now on the market for the first time in nearly two decades, the property features, per the listing, eight bedrooms, six and a half baths, hardwood floors, crown moldings, two fireplaces, an updated gourmet kitchen, a solar heated pool and spa, a vegetable garden with fruit trees, and a one-bedroom guest apartment with living room and kitchenette. Sited on a .32-acre lot, it's listed at $4.5 million.
