In 1930, the illustrious Paul R. Williams—subject of a new photo exhibit at Woodbury University’s Hollywood gallery—designed this Spanish Colonial Revival in Brentwood for the excellently named Vermillion “Verrie” Goodwin, then secretary of the California Tax Agency.

Located a block east of Brentwood Park, the 6,500-square-foot villa has five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, coffered ceilings, terracotta tile floors, wrought-iron details, French doors and windows, and multiple fireplaces, while its lush grounds feature a grotto-style swimming pool, a sculpture garden, and circular motor court.

The .61-acre property hit the market for the first time in more than 50 years in late September with an asking price of $10.8 million. It has since been price-chopped to $8.95 million.
