Home of the Week: A divine dwelling in Los Feliz


This Spanish Colonial-style residence in Los Feliz was once home to the Rev. Louis H. Evans, the organizing pastor of Bel-Air Presbyterian Church. Built in the late 1920s, the restored and updated residence draws the eye throughout with its plaster walls, antique tiles and handcrafted hardware. In the great room, original cast-iron windows flood the space with natural light.
