Behind the gates of Los Feliz’s tony Laughlin Park enclave, this Spanish Colonial Revival-style dwelling awaits its next owners.
Built in 1922, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house was designed by architect Carleton M. Winslow as his private residence. Winslow was an in-demand architect in the early 20th century, with commissions including the (now demolished) Carthay Circle Theater and a number of churches throughout Southern California.
Winslow also worked on the Central Library in Downtown with Bertram Goodhue, and finished the library when Goodhue died before the project’s completion.
The house at 1923 Laughlin Park Drive retains a number of its original features, including hardwood floors, wood details, fireplaces, fixtures, and Spanish tile. The high, beamed ceilings and wealth of windows also appear original to the well-preserved house.
The roughly 2,300-square-foot house sites on a quarter-acre lot with a large, currently scruffy lawn bordered by mature, privacy-providing trees. It is listed with Rosemary Low and Natalie Gonzalez of Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.85 million.
