Hlaffer-Courcier Residence, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #1069
Built: 1924 Declared: 06/24/2014
Located in Los Feliz, this 1924 two-story home is built in the fanciful Storybook style. The house was designed and constructed by Rufus Beck, who was also responsible for other Storybook homes around Los Angeles. The façade features three gables with steep, bowed pitches and exaggerated concave ridges, separated by two stucco chimneys accented with an erratic application of clinker brinks. Cladding is primarily stucco with shaped half-timbering around openings and across one gable. The exterior door features a prominent speakeasy door with an iron grill. The interior features plank doors with triangular, peaked tops, and half-timbers that have been charred by fire and then smoothed.
