Home of the Week: South Bay classic offers a taste of the Riviera

This Mediterranean Revival-style home in the South Bay’s Hollywood Riviera was built by real estate developer Clifford Reid, who in the 1920s and ‘30s sought to re-create the French Riviera in a section between Torrance and Redondo Beach.

Among the first homes built in the community, the grand two-story has all the hallmarks of a classic. Hand-painted beams, inlaid glass windows and plaster walls that simulate cut stone are among features of note. Beyond the front door, a turreted entry dazzles with its original decorative Italian tile floors.
