Vintage SoCal | This Woodland Hills house wears its Hollywood history well

The gated English Tudor, listed at $2.2 million, was once part of a larger property owned by Oscar-winning film director Michael Curtiz.

Built using imported materials and designed to emulate a Cotswold cottage, the main house has been repaired and expanded while staying true to the architectural style.

The 1934 English Tudor estate was once a carriage house and used as guest quarters for part of a larger property owned by prolific film director Michael Curtiz, who helped put stars such as Doris Day, Bette Davis and Errol Flynn on the marquee. His films included “Casablanca,” “Mildred Pierce,” “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and “White Christmas.”
