Majestically straddling the high ridge just above Frank Lloyd Wright's Ennis House, this classic and rare Egyptian Revival Residence built in 1924 affords remarkable two-way views of both Griffith Park, and the city at your feet below. The bold almost temple-like facade belies light and spacious eclectic interiors which flow out to roof-top decks and terraces overlooking all. Three levels incorporate oversized master bedroom; bath and living room at the top; second master, additional bedroom, 2 baths, dining room and expanded kitchen all on the entry level; and maid's suite or additional guest quarters below. A staircase leads down the park side of the house to a secret garden area.
