LA aaroe
One of the biggest thrills of representing homes in Southern California is working with some of the most magnificent mansions anywhere. Over the years, we’ve had the honor of showcasing so many remarkable estates, from a $70 million Beverly Hills Contemporary to an award-winning Malibu vineyard. But for iconic elegance, nothing beats the Golden Age Mediterranean/Spanish-influenced “California style.” Architect Wallace Neff pioneered the genre — and in this issue, you’ll visit a home that was far from his biggest, but certainly his most personal. Welcome!

Wallace Neff‘s most important client? It wasn’t a star

In 1927, the architect known as the father of the “California style” that defined Southern California’s Golden Age designed a home for his parents in the heart of Pasadena. The gemlike villa that helped launch his reputation still glows today.
The Edwin D. Neff House is one of the last grand family mansions on Pasadena’s Millionaires’ Row. Before being purchased by its current owner, iconic LA weathercaster Johnny Mountain, it had been in the Neff family for three generations. more »
