Westmoreland Heights is a small pocket enclave within the Harvard Heights neighborhood and HPOZ. On Saturday, June 3, WAHA opens the doors to six of its gracious turn-of-the-century homes — plus a restored barn now adaptively reused as an office/studio AND a former root beer factory-turned art space and coffee house. (more information below)
The “Reaching New Heights: Exploring Westmoreland Heights” tour spotlights a selection of pre-1910 homes in the Craftsman, Tudor and American Foursquare styles, including residences designed by architects Frank M. Tyler and Abram Edelman. Visitors will see the home of Juan Baptiste (John B.) Amestoy, whose family owned what is now Encino, and a home built for a pioneer Jewish family.
The self-guided tour allows visitors to explore at their own pace. Doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. The last ticket will be sold at 1:30 p.m. at the day-of-event ticket sales location, 1811 S. Hobart Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90006.
