This luxurious volume offers an exclusive look into the classic homes and gardens in the legendary neighborhoods in and around Los Angeles. Shown here are the estate of the 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 the present day.
