Phillips House, Elmer Gray, Architect 1930

Architect Elmer Grey (1872-1963) designed the Norman syle chateau for Dr. Charles E. Phillips in 1930. Grey designed many noted Southern California landmarks, including the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Huntington Art Gallery, the Pasadena Playhouse and Wattles Mansion. He is credited with being a pioneer in the development of a new American style of architecture with a focus on harmony with nature and eliminating features not belonging to the local climate and conditions.

The house is located at 4803 Cromwell Avenue in the Los Feliz District of Los Angeles.
