Elmer Mauzy


Tudor Revival

Historical Summary:

These Tudor Revival cottages just south of Sunset Boulevard were built in 1924, by Elmer Mauzy, as part of a complex of shops, restaurants and cottages called the "English Village." The development was sizable, and one of the first projects to utilize the vista of Los Angeles to commercial advantage. All that remains of the "Village" is this cluster of cottages built behind the stores on Sunset. The Village began a trend on Sunset Boulevard of the lively use of Period Revival stylings. The accommodation for the automobile is unique, with off-street garages nestled beneath a southern terrace, from which views to the Los Angeles basin below are present to this day. The cluster of Tudor Revival buildings includes ten detached cottages of one and two stories. Some of the cottages are arranged around a wood balustraded terrace which opens to the southwest. Others are arranged around a heavily landscaped, outdoor walkway. Each cottage has a separate entrance from the terrace or walkway.
