The roaring spirit of an earlier era lives on at this 1920s home in Studio City, which was once owned by the chairman of Republic Pictures. Imported stained glass, reclaimed London street lights and a hidden wine cellar lend Jazz Age ambiance to the residence known as the Gate House. Outdoors, the tree-lined grounds contain a ranch-style guesthouse and a sunken fire ring.
