Character-filled Spanish villa rises above the times in Los Feliz

The 1930s classic is listed at $2.397 million.

This Spanish Colonial-inspired villa was built in 1930, the start of the Great Depression. The craftsmanship and care that went into the home’s construction is still evident in such architectural details as built-ins, an elegantly curved patio and multiple balconies. A dramatic multistory atrium that evokes a chapel brings light into the center of the house.
