1349 N. Gardner Avenue in Hollywood

The home at 1349 North Gardner Avenue was originally built in 1917 by the Stevens & Turner Land Development Company on a two-block stretch between Sunset Boulevard and Fountain Avenue. The neighborhood is located just a few blocks east of historic Spaulding Square and is dominated by apartment buildings and the home of Los Angeles Fire Station 41. When I first visited this property for the family, I discovered the property was squatter-occupied and had to work with the Los Angeles Police Department to clear it before securing and fencing the perimeter.
