The Gramercy Park Homestead
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting photos from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until all of them are online.]
Anchoring the eastern edge of Gramercy Park is the Gramercy Park Homestead, a Transitional Craftsman built in 1910 by motion picture pioneer George Edmund Van Guysling. On Pages 58-64 we go inside the home to see what it looks like now as well as discover the state it was in when the current owner bought it in the 1980's.
Designed by architect William E. Blakie the home features 12 rooms and three and a half baths all in 5,000 square feet. When purchased in the 1980‘s the home was in great disrepair as can be seen in the photo and 'screen grabs' from the Book below.
Above you can see the Main Staircase with its mix of Victorian and Craftsman styles. Below in another 'screen-grab' a view through to the Dining and Breakfast Rooms.
