The Four Gables was one of the late additions to the West Hollywood skyline. Its interiors were well-appointed and fully furnished with fine antiques, maid service, security, and chauffeurs on staff. Its designer, Leland Bryant, was born in Michigan in 1891. He is known in California as a master of luxury apartment houses, building designs that range from Modern to Period Revival. Bryant collaborated with Samuel Coine to create the Four Gables and thereafter went on to design the Sunset Tower Hotel, Savoy Plaza Apartments, Beau Sejour, Granville Towers and La Fontaine.
Recognizing that this symbol of elegant "old Hollywood" represents a special moment in time, the current owners have preserved and restored the beautiful, elegant French gardens, historic wood and metal work, moldings, wainscoting, finials, and sconces. They have also replaced and laid new ceramic, glass, and marble tile, as well as refinished hardwood floors throughout each floor of the property.
The Four Gables is nestled in the heart of the Historic District of West Hollywood on Harper and Fountain Avenues and is steps away from the Sunset Plaza, an upscale and friendly restaurant row and shopping district overflowing with charming shops and alfresco dining. The Sunset Strip and Sunset Plaza remain entertainment destinations for locals and visitors looking for stylish respites in an urban setting.
Within walking distance is the renowned Melrose District, home to the Pacific Design Center and Museum of Contemporary Art. Melrose promotes a forward-thinking and creative culture; its streets are lined with acting studios, lounges, comedy clubs, art galleries, and music venues. The area is stylish and glamorous while maintaining a warm and welcoming energy, which encourages eclectic creativity.
