The home has quite the Hollywood history. It was built in 1928 for Louis Samuel, the personal assistant of silent film icon Ramon Novarro. Novarro later moved into the house and had the interior redone by Cedric Gibbons, the designer of the gold Oscar statuette. Later Hollywood heavyweights who lived here include Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Diane Keaton, and Christina Ricci.


Now listed in the L.A. Conservancy as a historic place, this masterpiece has retained Lloyd Wright’s signatures throughout including the oxidized copper ornamentation on the exterior. The open layout living space features huge windows, a frosted glass entryway, and perfect indoor/outdoor flow.


Outside the home is surrounded by lush vegetation.


Imagine throwing dinner parties under the greenery.


You’ll love the wonderful and enclosed swimming pool area.


The second story terrace offers calming and serene views of the Los Feliz hillside.


The bright and airy kitchen has beautiful marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.


The gorgeous master suite boats floor to ceiling windows leading out to a private balcony.


Two more bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office area, and several lounge areas complete the space. Located in the exclusive neighborhood “The Oaks” of Los Feliz, now is your chance to own a true masterpiece of art and architecture.
