Home of the Week: A Los Feliz Tudor restored for a new century

Dating to nearly a century ago, this English Tudor Revival-style residence designed by L. Milton Wolf emerges from a two-year restoration looking every bit as good as it did in the roaring 1920s.

Beautiful brickwork and a conical turret known as a witch’s cap are among the arresting details from the street. Beyond the entry are herringbone-patterned wood floors, arched doorways and custom millwork in keeping with the original style. A separate den and speakeasy-style bar sit off the living room.
