About This 1908 Famous Alfred Rosenheim Mansion In Los Angeles California

One of the most important estates ever built in Los Angeles: The Alfred Rosenheim Mansion ca. 1908. Steeped in history, this 6 bedroom, 6 bath home was declared “Historical and Cultural Landmark #660”. Boasting 6 stunning Batchelder tile fireplaces, Tiffany stained and leaded glass, Italian brickwork, Peruvian Mahogany paneling, a cathedral ballroom that was once a chapel with 56′ ceilings, a huge basement, and a world class recording studio.

Alfred Rosenheim was a German-American architect who built the mansion. Rosenheim built the house in 1902 and lived in it with his family shortly thereafter. The Alfred Rosenheim Mansion was situated near an area called “Billionaire Row”, close to California’s wealthiest families. Rosenheim himself was notable not just for architectural design, but he also designed nine roller-coasters.

The Rosenheims lived in the house for eleven years and sold it to California’s wealthiest man, a “colorful mining magnate” named A.J. McQuatters. Then, in the early 1930s actor Edward Everett Horton lived in the mansion. After him the Catholic Order of Nuns, the Sisters of Social Service used the house as a convent, and even added a chapel to the grounds.  In 1994 an earthquake damaged the house and the nuns put it on the market for a cool $3 million. The house was declared an Historic and Cultural Landmark in 1999.

The home was used in a series of films and television shows such as American Horror Story Season 1, Spiderman, Seabiscuit, The X-Files, The Twilight Zone, Six Feet Under, Bones, Dexter, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (it was the frat house in the episode “Fear, Itself”, where Buffy and the gang got locked in on Halloween).

  1. Stunningly beautiful. Sincerely hope the people who bought it don’t ruin all that terrific woodwork by covering it up with paint.

  2. This is one of my favorite houses! I fell in love with it watching American Horror Story! I normally don’t like all that dark wood, but it’s just stunningly beautiful!
    The stained and leaded glass is gorgeous!
    I’d love to be the proud owner, sadly, I’m a little short on those type of funds ??

Let me know what you think about this old house!
