Adding a dash of class to the market is a regal English manor designed in 1923 by Arthur R. Kelly, architect of the Harvard-Westlake School, the Wilshire Country Club, and the humble abode now known as the Playboy Mansion.

Concealed behind walls and hedges on a .46-acre lot abutting Runyon Canyon, the two-story Tudor Revival would make an excellent spot for a murder-mystery dinner party. Within its 4,174 square feet are four bedrooms, four baths, living room, formal dining room, kitchen, breakfast nook, library, and study. The property also contains a rooftop rec room and separate guest apartment.

Architectural features include beamed ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, French doors, moldings, period sconces and hardware, built-in seating, and two fireplaces.

Outside, you’ll find rolling lawns, mature trees, and, per the listing, “a large entertaining terrace that features cinematic long-range views down through the garden and into the city below.”

Last sold in 2003 for $2.3 million, it’s now asking $5.435 million.
