Villa Manola, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #1084

Built: 1923  Declared: 03/31/2015

Built in 1923, this two-story, single-family residence in the Hollywood Hills exhibits character-defining features of the Moorish Revival style. Features include the use of several Islamic or Moorish arches in transom windows, door openings, and wall niches, an octagonal fountain in the courtyard, and a deeply coved ceiling in the living room. The home was built by master architect Paul R. Williams, whose works include 16 designated Historic-Cultural Monuments.
