An 8,891-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles' Los Feliz area that once was owned by long-ago Los Angeles Times publisher Harry Chandler is on the market for $6,799,000.


We're piggybacking on the fine work done way back in September by the good people over at Curbed LA, who penned a nice post on this listing at that time. While this house has non-celebrity owners today, Chandler (1864-1944) was quite the visionary (and celebrity) in his day, having been part of real estate development syndicates that developed much of the San Fernando Valley and the Hollywood Hills.

Built in 1914 (according to listing information) or 1916 (according to public records), the three-story, 24-room mansion, at 2411 Inverness Avenue, has eight bedrooms, four baths, original hardwood detail, distinctive paneling and an ornately carved fireplace, according to listing information. Other features include a grand entrance that rises two stories "in baronial splendor" and views of Santa Catalina Island, Century City, Glendale and Griffith Park, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the mansion's 0.83-acre (36,089-square-foot) lot include a pool and a guest house, according to public records.

The property's owners have owned the house since 1989, according to public records.
