Less than a square mile in size, the Griffith Park-adjacent enclave known as the Los Feliz Oaks is quite a treasure trove of notable architecture. Sprinkled throughout its curving, hilly streets are fantastic examples of Spanish Colonial, Italianate, Greek, English Tudor, Craftsman, Pre-Columbian, and International Modern-style residences.

Now available in an off-market listing is one of the first homes built in the tract, a 1924 Moorish Revival. Located at 2200 Mountain Oak Drive, a few doors down from the landmark Arzner-Morgan Residence, the home was built for a well-to-do family from Chicago, according to the Los Feliz Improvement Association’s historical survey.

While the hillside property has been around for nearly a century, its Hollywood-glam interior is of very recent vintage, having undergone a thorough revamp overseen by Alexander Design. Measuring 4,042 square feet, it features four bedrooms, three and a half baths, concrete, hardwood, and tile floors, beamed ceilings, wrought iron details, a hand-molded plaster fireplace, built-ins, ample walls of glass, and high-end finishes throughout.

Exterior spaces include a roof deck with built-in furniture and endless views, a newly designed spa and outdoor dining area, and terraced gardens. On an 8,382-square-foot lot, it’s offered with an asking price of $5.5 million. Jenna Cooper of Compass holds the listing.

Slender wrought iron railings provide understated drama to the two-story entry foyer’s staircase.
