George R. Perry French Normandy

Designed in 1927 by George R. Perry and sited on a private street overlooking Griffith Park, this three level French Normandy inspired residence showcases true European architecture.

In Normandy and the Loire Valley of France, farm silos were often attached to the main living quarters instead of a separate barn.  After World War I, Americans romanticized the traditional French farmhouse, creating an architectural style known as French Normandy.

From the French chateaus, borrowed elements of steep roof pitches, high ridgelines, and dormers suggest the notion of a grand scaled estate. The French Normandy style is most notably distinguished by a variation of a round tower topped by a cone-shaped roof. The tower is usually placed near the center, serving as the entrance to the home; however, the tower can also be offset to either side of the structure as a secondary design feature within the architectural theme.

Amenities include twenty-three foot pitched wood-beam ceilings, three bedrooms with additional guest unit or office with private entrance, three and a half bathrooms, chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Sub Zero refrigerator and butler’s pantry, hardwood flooring throughout and newly refinished hardwood flooring in the second and third bedrooms, oversized French doors, alarm system, fireplace, new stone and masonry work, updated plumbing and electrical, newer sewer line, new heating and air conditioning and a street to street lot with a separate legal address on East Live Oak Drive.
