About This Project

1000-12 1/2 Larrabee Street

These Tudor Revival cottages just south of Sunset Boulevard were built in 1924, by Elmer Mauzy, as part of a complex of shops, restaurants and cottages called the “English Village.” The development was sizable, and one of the first projects to utilize the vista of Los Angeles to commercial advantage. All that remains of the “Village” is this cluster of cottages built behind the stores on Sunset. The Village began a trend on Sunset Boulevard of the lively use of Period Revival stylings. The accommodation for the automobile is unique, with off-street garages nestled beneath a southern terrace, from which views to the Los Angeles basin below are present to this day.
