Theo. J. Scott, architect.
Potential City of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
The home was designed by Theodore J. Scott, one of the busiest architects during the 1920s, with hundreds of Los Angeles homes and even entire neighborhoods to his credit. Scott was a master at all the popular “revival” styles of the period, but especially the Spanish with arched arcades and loggias running along the length of one section of the homes as in this residence.
The owner in 1940 was screenwriter Ralph Spence, screenwriter of 127 films between 1912 and 1946. He eventually became known as the “highest-paid title writer in the world” charging $5 per word.
