Prolific LA architect Gerard Colcord designed this charming residence for his sister in 1941. Sited among the lush oak groves of E. Chevy Chase Drive, this beautifully preserved residence employs many signature Colcord features including the grand living room fireplace, knotty pine paneling and built-in bookshelves, dutch-doors, custom wrought iron hardware, hand done French style ceiling treatments, hw floors and multi-paned windows to take in views of the Verdugo Hills. Known mostly for his grand and highly sought after homes on the Westside of LA, Colcord designed over 300 residences gracefully blending a number of different architectural styles.
