8250 Fountain Ave

The property at 8250 Fountain Avenue, also known as Four Gables, was constructed in 1927 and is part of the Harper Avenue Historic District. The buildings within the Harper Avenue District embody distinctive characteristics of various period revival architectural styles. The area defines a district that possesses a concentration of historic properties that are unified by their multi-family form, period revival design and date of construction. The location of the district between Beverly Hills and Hollywood and adjacent to the developing Sunset Strip, made it an increasingly attractive residential area in the 1920s. The multi-family form and luxury of period revival styles were new to the West Hollywood community, which, until the 1920s, had been dominated with simple single-family development.
