Cornelia B. Speer commissioned the renowned architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey to build a winter residence in The Arroyo Terrace neighborhood on the banks of the Arroyo Seco. David M. Renton was the builder and this wonderful home was completed in 1904. The property is included in Gebhard and Winter’s book on Los Angeles Architecture as a good example of early Dutch Colonial Revival. This very special property also enjoys Mills Act Status, with tremendous property tax savings.
Hardwood floors, oversized windows and French doors are just a few of the home’s wonderful details. The home has been extensively updated with all the modern conveniences including central air conditioning, kitchen with granite counters, generously sized center island and Viking appliances.
