At 2,432 square feet, this majestic Spanish-style home in Leimert Park isn’t particularly diminutive, but it was nonetheless featured in the 1930 Los Angeles Small Homes Exposition. The event was sponsored by Walter H. Leimert as a means of drumming up publicity for the brand new subdivision he had established just south of Santa Barbara Avenue (now Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard).

Dubbed “La Joya de Leimert” in its listing description, this particular home was designed by Carl Jules Weyl, the architect behind the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant (who later went on to an Oscar-winning career as an art director).

The dining room is equally impressive, with a similarly pitched ceiling and French doors that seem to lead outside, though there appears to be a sizable gate in the way—a good deterrent against any unwanted dinner guests.

Other features of the three-bedroom home include a long galley kitchen with terra cotta tile flooring, a very stone-filled master bathroom, and a flexible office space adjoining the master bedroom. Behind the house is a small patch of yard and a sizable patio currently outfitted with a pleasant collection of plants and outdoor furniture.
