The house is also home to several dogs. For Untold LA I know I should focus on the architecture, design and details of buildings, but c'mon, who couldn't love this guy?

This home is one of my favorites.
One word, (kinda):
Sure it produces almost no illumination and probably was responsible for god-knows-how-many fires. But it conjures up a slower time, if not simpler. Illusion of course, the seductiveness of nostalgia.
Special thanks must go to the owners of this home. They were one of the earliest supporters of the Untold LA Kickstarter; their generosity indicated right away that there was viable support for the project in the community.
And they've got a great fireplace. So that right there counts for something.
As well as a tranquil breakfast nook the house features the gentle fountain in the backyard. One of the best things for me about this project is seeing the little oases that people carve out for themselves in the big city.
Am fascinated by the fireplaces in West Adams homes. One could do a whole book on them alone.
While the fireplace does dominate with its unusual nature the rest of the downstairs is able to maintain an open and inviting feeling.
