Palos Verdes Project House #2, 1925

On Paseo del Mar -- still an unassuming beauty, after all these years.
"Architect: W.L. Risley
A modern Spanish Revival dwelling, indicating one of the housing types planned for Palos Verdes. Other housing types included connected town houses, garden apartments, and extensive villas and gardens."
Ref. An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles by David Gebhard and Robert Winter

Yes, I envy the weather in your part of the country, esp. during our cold winter months. I could move right into that house and live quite happily ever after!

You know, I never liked Spanish style houses in PV---sun-baked adobe doesn't quite fit the weather there. Lots of fog and overcast skies, at least on the inland half of the penninsula.
Of course, there's still a lot of sun, too, as Tash's pictures attest.

It's a lovely California Spanish bungalow, amazing to think it was built over 85 years ago. Now if only I could look so good at that age. :)

I'm partial to simple Spanish-style home like this one.

I love that book. The oldest version first put out by the LACMA has the actual addresses to many privately owned homes
