Designer Morgan Brown is selling four old Hollywood resorts – DIRT

On the heels of blockbuster sale of his stunning West Hollywood resort, which set a neighborhood record when it traded hands for $16.6 million earlier this month, designer and real estate investor Morgan Brown is looking to cash out on a multipack of his other real estate.

Marketed as “The Golden Age Collection,” the set consists of four separate multi-family resorts, three of which have strong Old Hollywood credentials and are located in nearby Tinseltown, while the fourth is in in Venice and, if we can be so bold, really has nothing to do with the other properties. But that’s okay, as each can be purchased individually instead of being part of a set!

Arguably the largest of the four offerings, and certainly the most glamorous in Old Hollywood, is the complex known as Patio del Moro, which counts Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Humphrey Bogart and Joan Fontaine among its former occupants. Listed on the National Register of Historic Placesthe Fountain Avenue complex was designed in the mid-1920s by the talented husband and wife team of Arthur and Nina Zwebell, who set the standard for luxury courtyard accommodations in Los Angeles.

Commissioned by a client who had traveled extensively through Spain and North Africa and had fallen in love with regional architecture, Zwebell’s imaginative design for the Patio del Moro included a horseshoe-shaped entrance tunnel , a fountain and fireplace in the courtyard, and a copper-domed Tunisian tower. . The 9,330-square-foot resort features seven one- to three-bedroom units and features arched windows and doorways, high beamed ceilings, built-ins, detailed wrought iron and tiling, French doors, and ceilings. wooden floor. Priced at $7.425 million, the historic property also enjoys Mills Act tax benefits.
