3765 San Rafael Avenue
Prominent among the architectural treasures of Mt. Washington is this impressive 2-story 4bd/2.5ba Craftsman. In 1908, Walter G. Eisenmayer, an executive with the LA Ice and Cold Storage Co, decided to build a home overlooking the city. He hired the Milwaukee Building Co (behind Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Mount Washington Hotel aka the Self-Realization Fellowship Centre) to construct a home that spoke of success and position. The design was characterized as a "Swiss Cottage type" Craftsman, with peaked roofs and green ship lap siding. Subsequent owners have restored the house into a Craftsman showplace with shining hardwood floors throughout. The home is filled with antique and reproduction Craftsman period Stickley furniture, as well as various objects d'art. Property features include: large 11,000+sqft lot, spacious and gated front yard, outdoor kitchen, rooftop deck, and garage and office space.
