The home was built circa 1925, which would make it one of the very first homes built in the area and only just after the original shell of the Hollywood Bowl was constructed in 1921.

2621 N Vermont Avenue was built by Theodore J. Scott. Sometimes referred to as T.J. Scott or Theo Scott. Scott was one of Los Angeles’ most prolific architects of the Roaring 1920s, although you may not yet have heard his name. The unsung Scott designed hundreds, possibly thousands of homes including entire streets and neighborhoods. He was the principal architect of the old Beverly Speedway property developed by Walter G. McCarty and a large tract of land in the vicinity of Kenneth Road in Glendale owned by H.L. Miller. Scott designed a Spanish Revival villa in Bel-Air for silent screen actress Colleen Moore Mansion at 345 St. Pierre Road which recently was listed for sale for $13,800,000.

Scott was adept at all the popular “revival” styles of the period, particularly the Spanish, often employing Missionesque arched arcades/loggias running along the length of at least one section of a house. This bold and brilliant brick English Tudor Revival style home is a commanding and dramatic display of Scott at the height of his powers. With its steeply pitched roof, playfully elaborate masonry chimneys, and other period embellishments, it remains a signature home of Scott’s and a distinguished property in this neighborhood, which includes Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House and Richard Neutra’s Lovell House as nearby neighbors.

And although the home will celebrate its centennial anniversary soon, it has been gloriously updated throughout.

The dramatic two-story entry leads to a grand step-down living room that features custom illuminated bookshelves by renowned architectural firm Project Room LA. Project Room LA is the architectural firm who recently won the LA streetlight design competition.

The adjacent den is the perfect spot to lounge and has French doors that open effortlessly to the inviting pool, spa, and grassy yard.

The formal dining room offers features a gorgeous row of windows and a lovely chandelier.

The spacious cook’s kitchen offers plenty of room to enjoy.

The kitchen blends premium vintage appliances with new top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.

Upstairs you will find three of the main house’s four bedrooms.

The expansive primary bedroom is a true sanctuary.

The revamped baths feature Lefroy Brooks fixtures and gorgeous period tiles.

The primary bath has both a soaking tub and a luxuriously large walk-in shower.

The lovely guest house has a separate entrance.

The guest house was originally a music studio is now a creative office/screening room.

The options for this space are endless.

The guest house also has a .75 bath.

Back inside the main house, there are three more guest bedrooms.

Each of the bedrooms has their own en suite baths.

The bright fourth and final bedroom is located downstairs and has access to the pool and yard through a pair of French doors.

The bedroom also has an en suite bath that is sure to delight with its blend of modern and vintage tiles and fixtures.

The majestic backyard is completely private and enclosed by the lush hillside canopy of plants and trees.

The pool and spa and verdant grassy area offer wonderful options for relaxing and lounging on warm summer days. The house also has several covered al fresco dining areas. There is gated off-street parking for 6+ cars.

Rarely does an intact, brilliantly upgraded estate of this caliber appear on the market. 2621 Vermont Avenue is strolling distance to Griffith Park hiking trails, the Greek Theatre and essential shops, movie theaters and restaurants in nearby Los Feliz Village.
