Franklin Hills Spanish Built by Designer of the Iconic Pantages Theatre – 1570 Sanborn Ave.

Own a piece of Hollywood history with this fabulous Spanish-style home in Los Feliz’s wonderful Franklin Hills neighborhood. The home was built in 1928 by sculptor Steven Gaal making it one of the original homes in the area. Gaal was a prestigious artist who also designed the iconic Egyptian and Pantages theatre interiors. After moving to Los Angeles in 1925, he established this as his studio-home where he sculpted portrait busts, whippets, and commemorative coins. Gaal also worked with Walt Disney on some of his early cartoon characters and then painted sets for Universal, Paramount, and United Artists.
