This spacious lot (nearly three-quarter acres) hosts a “grand Italianate” built in 1937 and designed by C. Raimond Johnson, who was the University Supervising Architect for USC’s Parkinson Campus Master Plan (the first major building plan, in 1919) and the primary University Architect from 1937 until 1955. (He designed the United University
Church and the Allan Hancock Foundation Building in his time at USC, according to city documents.) Per the listing, the six-bedroom, six-bathroom estate, once nicknamed Villa del Lago boasts “270-degree views” of the reservoir and the Downtown skyline, plus a large pool on an adjacent lot. It’s located on “one of the most desired streets in Ivanhoe” (Redcliff), no doubt for the awesome views. It’s asking $3.75 million.
