Stunning 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival in Los Feliz Oaks asking $ 3.45 million

According to architectural historian Steve Vaught, “the busiest architect in LA you’ve probably never heard of” is one Theodore J. Scott.

During the Roaring Twenties, Scott designed hundreds of homes in Southern California, including the lavish Manoir Bel-Air from the mute mermaid Colleen Moore, and that luxury Spanish colonial revival that now graces the Los Feliz Oaks market.

Built for real estate developer Maurice Korman in 1928, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath residence was described as “extraordinary” build quality by the Los Angeles County Building Assessor shortly after its completion, and according to the Los Angeles County Building Assessor. its list, has been “meticulously maintained and updated from foundation to modern systems throughout”.

Some of the outstanding attributes of the 3,955-square-foot home include a two-story entrance with a bull’s eye window, sculpted archways, extravagant plaster and forged ironwork, hardwood floors, an ornate fireplace, French doors and beautiful original tiles on the stairs and in the kitchen and bathrooms. Exterior features include multiple balconies and patios, an outdoor fireplace, and extensive gardens.

Located on the outskirts of Griffith Park at 5432 Red Oak Drive, the nearly half-acre property is listed with Richard Stanley of Coldwell Banker for a asking price of $ 3.45 million.

The impressive entrance features a freestone floor with painted tile risers and detailed wrought iron.
