New, 3 comments

The unusual residence was built in 1922, reportedly with the assistance of John Byers

What say we meet another one of L.A.'s Historic-Cultural Monuments? Number 621, West Adams Terrace's Alice Lynch Residence was built in 1922 and designated a landmark in 1996. Not only is the 2,560-square-foot home an exquisite local specimen of adobe construction, it's also a noteworthy example of the work of Henry Harwood Hewitt, the architect of the Westlake Masonic Temple and Los Feliz's Villa Sophia. Furthermore, its adobe construction is reported to have been overseen by another master architect, John Byers.

Built around a central patio, the tiled-roof house contains four bedrooms and two baths. Character details include extensive wrought iron work, a living room with vaulted, beamed ceiling and fireplace, hardwood and tile floors, arched windows and doorways, stained glass, and period fixtures. The home is situated on a 9,383-square-foot lot and features some drought-friendly landscaping. It's asking $1.069 million.
