Historic-Cultural Monument #1025 (2/5/2013) The Durex Model Home Historic-Cultural monument was designed by Harry Garfield Koerner and William John Gage for the Durex Quality Homes subsidiary of the F.P. Fay Company as a marketing tool for their Los Feliz Hills subdivision. The architects designed a number of homes for the Durex Company in the 1920s and went on to design the Beverly Hills City Hall. The home was sold in 1931 to attorney and real-estate broker James L. Merely. He sold the home to Carl C. Vianelli, a well-known private investigator. Shortly thereafter, Vianelli sold the house to William Beaton. Alterations include the addition of a swimming pool and the installation of the fence and gate. The sign that reads “La Casa Contenta” was installed by the current owners in 1993.
