Homeway House


Yesterday, we were invited to the L.A. Conservancy's volunteer party at Homeway House in View Park, L.A. The tour was conducted by the current owner of this beautiful 1932 Spanish Mediterranean Revival home. The home was built in 1932 by Frank K. Colby, Vice President of Barker Bros. Furniture Company. There are so many notable features in this home: Arched doorways, carved wood doors, bottle glass windows, Malibu tile, painted canvas walls and ceilings, a variety of rock fireplaces, and many different designs or themes in the various rooms. The panoramic views from many of the rooms in the home are spectacular. I only wish it hadn't been a rainy day! The architect was C.E. Noerenberg who designed many other public and private buildings in Los Angeles.

We always have a great time at L.A. Conservancy events. This was a very special tour. I urge you to join the Conservancy and partake of it's wonderful programs while helping to preserve historic architecture in our beautiful City.

Thanks so much, Ellen, for coming to the party! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And thanks very very very much for always supporting the Conservancy and encouraging others to, too. You're the best.
