Abstract:

"Trousdale Estates is a 410-acre enclave of 535 large, luxurious, mostly single-story homes in Beverly Hills, California. Primarily developed in the 1950s and '60s on what had been the Doheny Ranch, it quickly became legendary for its concentration of celebrity residents and the unrestrained extravagance of its houses. What's not wildely known is that Trousdale Estates comprises L.A.'s largest colony of luxury residential work by many of the most revered names in midcentury California architecture. Often working with unlimited budgets to fuel their clients' demands for high-visibility 'statement' homes, these designers created sprawling, elegant, sexy backdraps for the ultimate expression of the American Dream in the mid-to-late twentieth century. Their gilt-edged extravagance came to represent a category above and beyond what was meant for the masses."--Page [2] of cover.
