Evie, Lauren and I did Walk 17 from Walking L.A., exploring the Carthay Circle and South Carthay neighbourhoods just south of Beverly Hills. These Historic Preservation Overlay Zones are filled with well-maintained Spanish Colonial Revival-, Tudor Revival-, and American Colonial Revival-style homes. Here's one of many entrance ways that appealed to me.
I'm really loving how, through this book, I'm discovering all sorts of beautiful and interesting neighbourhoods in this city. Not that I can afford to live in most of them. We spotted a small, unattractive fixer-upper in Carthay Circle going for a mere million bucks. One can dream.
