Designed in the Storybook style for which he became famous, this 1926 French Normandy cottage in the Hollywood Hills was the personal residence of Los Angeles architect Frederick A. Hanson.
The fairytale-esque home features high hip roofs and a protruding entry gable on the outside, and a vaulted, two-story living room with decorative arches, period windows and a fireplace with original plaster detailing.
