Historic Los Feliz Art Nouveau Estate - architect A.F. Leicht

This stunning historic Los Feliz Art Nouveau Estate is a masterpiece of historical elegance and modern refinement. The magnificent mansion designed by architect A.F. Leicht offers an array of amenities that showcase the architect’s vision for luxury living. Known as “The Castle” the opulent estate is not only situated across the street from Frank Lloyd Wrights’ “Ennis House,” but it also has a colorful story of its own.

Leicht designed the structure in the 1920s, and since then, it has been home to many celebrities, musicians and other high-profile people. Some famous inhabitants who have owned the property are Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Lou Reed, John Philip Law and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Flea sold the house in the early 2000s to John Gilbert Getty, son of billionaire oil heir Gordon Getty, a musician himself. Perched atop a hillside in one of Southern California’s most prestigious neighborhoods, this property offers breathtaking views of the cityscape from downtown to the ocean. This historic Art Nouveau mansion on nearly two-acre grounds features meticulously landscaped surroundings.
