8061 Woodland Lane

Laurel Canyon Spanish

Sited against the hills, and taking advantage of the canyon vistas and topography, this recently renovated 1923 residence with three bedrooms and two bathrooms showcases Spanish Revival architecture with Mediterranean influences.  The seamless transition between the indoor living spaces and the outdoor entertaining areas allow for an open and airy flow.

Spanish Revival refers to the architectural style which was seen from approximately 1915 to1940 throughout Southern California, Texas and Florida. Like Mission Revival, Spanish Revival was influenced by Spanish Colonial architecture of earlier centuries.  Spanish Revival, however, was more ornate with stylistic detail apparent in both large features and small, such as intricately patterned tile work and wrought iron hardware.  Both of these elements are found at 8061 Woodland Lane.

Spanish Revival is an extremely eclectic style.  Many Mediterranean touches are combined to create an exotic, but harmonious appearance.  Influences include Spanish Baroque, Moorish and Gothic elements. Tile roofs and stucco exteriors are characteristic with half rounded doors and windows. Elaborate tile work, applied relief ornamentation and wrought iron grillwork is used to create frames around doorways and windows and is used widely as decorative accents throughout the house. Towers and columns are often seen as are balustrades, cantilevered balconies, covered porches, and arcaded walkways.  Front entrances were often highly ornamented and many were balanced by a commanding triple-arched focal window.

Amenities include: ebony stained hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, central heating and air conditioning, updated plumbing and electrical systems, stainless steel appliances, dark stained and pre-distressed reclaimed cabinetry, extra thick Carrara marble slab kitchen counters with dual sinks, in-ceiling sound system, video monitored alarm system, pitched and coved ceilings with hand-carved beams, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, outdoor garden lighting and two water features.
