Built: 1920 Declared: 04/20/2011
This property in the Hollywood Hills was built in 1920 for Lee B. Memefee and designed by architect William Lee Woollett, who also designed other significant Los Angeles buildings, including Broadway’s Million Dollar Theatre. The two-story residential building is an example of Mediterranean Revival architecture with Mid-Century Modern additions. Purchased in 1927 by major art collectors Walter C. Arensberg and his wife Louis Stevens, the property was bought in 1954 by Earl L Stendahl, who used it as an art gallery. It continues to function as a gallery space today.
