A luxurious showcase of the finest homes in the oldest neighborhoods of Los Angeles and environs, this volume offers an exclusive look into the classic homes and gardens in the legendary neighborhoods in and around LA. Shown here are the estate of great Hollywood producer and director Cecil B. DeMille, the former Danny Kaye house in Beverly Hills, and the wonderful Arts and Crafts masterwork by Greene and Greene--the Gamble House--in Pasadena. These works and others illustrate the wide range of period-revival styles popular in Southern California during its “Golden Age of Expansion" from 1899 to 1932. Lush, all-new color photographs capture the grandeur of these homes, and their exquisite gardens, in all their present-day glory.
