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.”
