The Grand Tour || The House Where Satchmo Played

Most homes of a certain age in Los Angeles usually come with old Hollywood stories of former residents. This Spanish beauty in Westwood, owned by good friends of mine, is no different. Home to Spencer Tracy and his wife for a time, and host to an intimate concert by Louis Armstrong, this estate has a charmingly eccentric layout, complete with original tile work, exposed beams, hardwood floors, interesting built-ins and one of the only SoCal basements I am personally aware of.
A relatively recent purchase, the owners are still hard at work with renovations but I twisted some arms and was allowed to take a few photos of their progress thus far. I can’t wait to see the finished product.
Incredible! I hope the renovations don’t involve a lot of yanking out and going all neutral. The tile work is amazing. Thanks much, I enjoyed the “tour”.

Completely agree! Thankfully, I have been assured that the tile work is staying put. Very welcome!
