My mouth literally started salivating the moment this home popped up. As if the scale, the moldings, the original built-ins, leaded glass windows and park-like grounds weren’t enough, this stunning Craftsman was also declared a Los Angeles historical monument in 1988 (Monument #370).

Dubbed the Herivel House, it was built in 1912 by Meyer & Holler Architects as part of Professors Row for Occidental College faculty who often walked to campus. Debuting for the first time in 55 years, the home’s intrinsic character has been graciously maintained, while its systems upgraded. So what I’m saying is, the bones don’t get better than this. Situated in what can only be described as an enchanted, park-like setting, the 11000 sq. ft. lot certainly lives up to majesty of this Highland Park jewel.
