I just photographed an Old Hollywood mansion on 3 acres in the heart of Hollywood, with guest house, artist studio, a waterfall, a 50 seat amphitheater, and hiking trails throughout the hillside property, leading up to a greenhouse, and a view of the Hollywood Sign. The residence was allegedly built by Randolph Hearst for Marion Davies. It’s on the market now for $11.25 million.

Houzz featured my images of the Stahl House in the Hollywood Hills in a feature article on historic houses in California:

https://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/110316347/list/historic-house-road-trip-west-coast

 

My images I shot of the historic, architecturally significant Stahl House, were featured in a feature article on the Houzz website, about a roadtrip to visit many historic residences on the West Coast. The house, aka Case Study House #22, was designed by architect Pierre Koenig, and made famous by being photography by famed architectural photographer Julius Schulman. I was fortunate to get to take a private group tour of the residence, view the interiors, exteriors, the fantastic views, sit in the famous chair by the window, and learn more about its history by the (adult) children of Mr. Stahl!

The gorgeous Ennis House, built by Frank Lloyd Wright in the hills of Los Feliz, in 1924, is now on the market for $23 million, after an intensive $17 million renovation by billionaire Ron Burkle, who enjoys restoring old, historic, and architectural important residences. I had the opportunity to take a private group tour of the Mayan-style residence last year (after its renovation). Below you can view my images from that special tour (unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos inside, just outside).

Enjoyed shooting the grounds of a Paul Williams – designed residence in Los Feliz for my fantastic designer client, Chris McCraw, of McCraw Design Development, who renovated the house, and Susan Taylor-Fisher, of Paradise Gardens & Landscape, who redid the landscaping.

Architect Paul R. Williams designed the Colonial-Norman style house for Rodney Alexander Pantages, son of the theater magnate, Alexander Pantages. Rodney Pantages managed the Hollywood Pantages Theater, which his father built in 1929.

Excited that CA Modern Magazine wrote a feature article on Steven Price’s coffee table book on the architecture of Trousdale Estates (Beverly Hills), which I photographed several houses for, and showcased my image of the A. Quincy Jones designed residence in the article (upper right). This was the very first time the owners had ever allowed their house to be  photographed and published, so it was an honor to be a part of this special opportunity!
