Dorothy Arzner home


Landmark Arzner-Morgan residence in Los Feliz Oaks


 Director Dorothy Arzner and her partner, dancer and choreographer, Marion Morgan



This is Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #301, a.k.a. the Arzner-Morgan residence at 2249 Mountain Oak Drive. Built in 1930 for director Dorothy Arzner, the first female member of the DGA, and her lifelong companion, dancer-choreographer Marion Morgan, the 3,600-square-foot Greek Revival in Los Feliz’s Oaks features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two fireplaces, and gardens designed by famed landscape architecture team Florence Yoch and Lucile Council. The property has been “revived inside and out by architect Annie Chu, along with the addition of a pool.”

    Beautiful house with clean lines and what appaears to be a great view.

    What does “revived” mean? Did they leave it as is and just update paint, wiring, etc., or did they alter the interior architecture and therefore destroy the architectural integrity of the house?

    Nice House, and view. It’s a long way from being a Greek Rivival now! Only the pillars have a Greek look. Like to have seen it before the “Make Over”. I like the wood floor in the Living Room, and the windows with the pillars showing. Very chic.
