Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

3170 Lake Hollywood Drive in Hollywood Hills


The Underwood Residence, 1928, is now on the market for the first time in 58 years. Built by acclaimed architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood as his family residence. Underwood is best known for his design of National Park lodges, including the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley.


Underwood enhanced architect and planner Franz Herding’s original vision for the upscale Hollywood Knolls as a Mediterranean hillside community by building his house in the popular Spanish Revival style.


Built around a fully walled central courtyard with a grassy children’s play yard beyond, the residence exudes a calm dignity and appropriateness to its location.



This charming home includes many original details, including exposed wooden window header set into the front façade, rear wood ceilinged verandah, wood burning fireplace, unpainted wooden doors, wide plank floors, wrought iron, and period fixtures.



The 2,348 square-foot-home has ample interior space.


The home is sited on a 6,821 square-foot-lot and includes a 2-car garage.


This unique home is ready for its lucky new owner!
