Situated on an impeccably landscaped corner lot in the historic Windsor Square neighborhood of Los Angeles, this property exudes an irresistible allure and prestige.
The Dorothy Chandler Estate, honored as a Historic Cultural Monument, serves as a splendid embodiment of Beaux Arts architecture in the prestigious Hancock Park enclave of Los Angeles.
Distinguished as the ‘Western White House,’ this Beaux Arts masterpiece holds a revered position in the history of Los Angeles, having played host to notable U.S. presidents like Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.
In 1913, this Windsor Park villa was constructed for Southern California’s real estate magnate, Peter Jannes. The architects behind its meticulous design were none other than the celebrated J. Martyn Haenke and William Dodd, both of whom were mentored by Julia Morgan, famed for her work on Hearst Castle.
Over the years, the property changed hands until it ultimately found itself under the ownership of Norman and Dorothy Chandler in the 1950s. These distinguished figures in Los Angeles, with Norman Chandler at the helm of the Los Angeles Times, affectionately christened their new estate ‘Los Tiempos.’
Today, the house proudly bears the name of these esteemed benefactors, renowned for their extravagant fundraisers and high-society gatherings held within its lavishly adorned music room.
This exceptional residence, sprawling across 9,329 square feet, encompasses six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It boasts timeless architectural intricacies, including the 400-year-old French limestone flooring in the kitchen and meticulously hand-carved custom cabinetry throughout.
