Home of the Week: Hancock Park manor holds on to its classic roots

Share via

Built nearly a century ago, this English manor in Hancock Park is an extraordinary example of architect Roland Coate’s interpretation of the Tudor style. Coate, known for his modern takes on the Spanish and adobe styles, was given a budget of $100,000 — a massive sum in those days — to build the grand two-story using cut stone, heavy timbering and mullioned windows. Accompanying the home are formal gardens done by A.E. Hanson, the landscape architect who designed gardens for the Getty House as well as the Doheny Library at USC.
