Not too long ago I had the privilege of listing a home designed by Los Angeles Architect Ray Kieffer. (Raymond) Ray Kieffer was a popular architect among the wealthy in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. Thought to be through a connection of Senator Frank Flint, the developer of Flintridge, Los Angeles architect Ray Kieffer received at least eight commissions to design large homes in the Italian, Spanish and English styles. In addition to these commissions he designed several spec homes in the area.
Other Los Angeles homes by Ray Kieffer were constructed in Beverly Hills, Windsor Square, San Marino, Beachwood Canyon, Canoga Park and Freemont Square.
There we so many beautiful architectural features in this home. But the living room was simply stunning, don’t you agree? If you appreciate fine architecture, click on the link to view the lifestyle real estate video.
