Home of the Week: In Beverly Hills, a Hollywood Regency readies for another star turn


Marjorie Lord, the actress and philanthropist known for her role as Danny Thomas’ television wife on “Make Room for Daddy,” lived for decades at this Beverly Hills residence designed by architect-to-the-stars John Elgin Woolf.

A classic example of the Hollywood Regency style, the 1962-built home displays an elegant touch, with such features as scaled formal rooms, web-patterned wood ceilings and the original Pullman entry doors. A recent restoration by Los Angeles-based design firm Marmol Radziner has polished the showplace to a fine sheen.
