Home of the Week: A Los Feliz home with nice composition

Built for Old Hollywood orchestrator-composer Leonid Raab, this traditional home is set in relative seclusion, with layers of gardens and outdoor spaces that expand outward on the flat, roughly half-acre property. Inside, modern updates blend with the original bones of architect Louis Selden’s design. Of note is the voluminous living room, which brings to mind images of entertaining in the golden age of Hollywood.
