Now available for the first time in over half a century is a fanciful Spanish Moorish castle built in the heady days of early Hollywood.

Located at 2111 Rockledge Road in Hollywood Heights, the 1924 castle was the longtime home of Morgan Woodward, a character actor known for playing such memorable heavies as Cool Hand Luke’s Boss Godfrey, the ruthless chain gang guard whose eyes are always hidden behind mirrored sunglasses.

While the turreted residence has seen a few changes over the years, it still retains a wealth of lovely period details, including hardwood floors, elaborate plaster work and moldings, wrought-iron grilles and railings, original built-in cabinetry, gorgeous painted tile, and a patio fountain.

Occupying a 4,474-square-foot lot, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is being offered “as-is” with an asking price of $1.375 million. Todd Henricks of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties has the listing.

The step-down living room features elaborate molding, soffit lighting, and tile accents.
The living room opens to a romantic balcony deck lined with twisted columns and accented with wrought iron and painted tile.
Per the listing, the dining room has original wood paneling imported from Africa.
The master bedroom features intricate plaster molding and woodwork.

The home has multiple separate patios, including one with a waterfall fountain and built-in arched niches.
