Steep rooflines and a cone-shaped turret known as a witch’s cap lend a whimsical quality to this 1920s home in Hollywood Hills known as the Erbes Residence. The vintage of the house, designed by Henry F. Withey, is evident in its barrel-vaulted ceilings, wrought iron accents and original tile. Double-hung windows and French doors take in canyon views.
