Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument Number 170 – which is also better known as the home of the pioneering architect Paul Revere Williams – is currently on the market for the very first time in its 65+ year history.

The two-story home, designed by Williams himself in 1951, and that served as his own personal residence until his passing in 1980, is located in the Lafayette Square Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in a gated community.

More recently, the 4,400 square foot home – which features a wrap-around roof terrace and an expansive lanai patio – has been used as the site of many of LA’s social events, as well as the home of Williams’ granddaughter, who is the author of numerous books.

Both residents and guests alike have marveled at the green marble fireplace, the breathtaking art-deco style staircase, and the soffit ceilings. Another distinctive feature is the built-in furniture that can be found in many of the rooms.

In addition, situated here on the nearly 12,000 square foot lot is also a cute two-room guest house that includes a kitchenette, a powder room and full bath, and a living room with a full bar.

The home’s current asking price is just under $2.4 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
