Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

4600 Gainsborough Avenue in Los Feliz


Built in 1933 by renowned architect Jock Peters for Academy Award winner Alfred Gilks, this beautiful Los Feliz oasis is on the market for the first time in over 60 years. I love seeing houses like this come on the market.

Known for his interior design of the historic Bullocks Wilshire and credited alongside contemporary European architects, Richard Neutra and R. M. Schindler, Peters fuses principals of modernism with flowing elements of art deco design in this residence.

Throughout the home there are beautiful built-in bureaus and cabinets designed by the architect.

The formal dining room is located adjacent to the expansive main level patio area.

The private patio is perfect for entertaining and is accented with an outdoor fireplace.

The spacious kitchen incorporates pristine vintage green tiles.

One of the bedrooms features a fresco mural by WPA artist Buckley MacGurrin. The WPA was a government-funded Federal Art Project which was part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal during the Great Depression.

The 3,024 square foot home includes four bedrooms and a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

A bay of windows washes one of the four bedrooms with light.

Extensive gardens with mature fruit trees surround the home.

The large second story deck boasts blue sky views.  Situated north of Los Feliz Blvd and within a short distance to Griffith Park this is a rare property and will go quickly!
