A Mid-Wilshire home where John F. Dockweiler, who served three terms in the U.S. Congress in the 1930s before becoming the district attorney of L.A. County, is on the market for $1.989 million.
The Spanish-style residence was built in 1927 and designed by John Byers, the architect known for the Spanish Colonial Revival style.
Tucked behind tall privacy hedges, the two-story home opens to a vaulted-ceiling living room with a fireplace. Arched doorways, custom built-ins and original hardwood floors are among details of note. The kitchen features a wealth of counter space.
Upstairs, the master suite has multiple closets, beamed ceilings and a view of the backyard. A total of three bedrooms and three bathrooms are within the 2,352-square-foot floor plan.
The house sits on a roughly 8,000-square-foot lot and has a swimming pool. Patios, lawn and professional landscaping fill out the grounds. There’s also an outdoor shower hidden among the hedges.
The property last sold seven years ago for $760,000, real estate records show.
