Tirado-Lion-Peligri Residence, Gilbert Leong 1959

Mid-Century style designed by Gilbert Long c. 1959 for Dr. Miguel Tirado and his wife, actress . The Tirado family owned the house until it was sold this year.The two bedroom, 1.75 bath house was listed for sale in March 2013 for $947,000 and described in the listing as "elegant geometry of Asian- influenced home design in the 60s shines brilliantly. Simple wood beams & warm wood ceilings frame the outspread Living Room. Textured carpets evoke tatami mats. A massive fireplace anchors the room, keeping you grounded while your spirit is elevated by the panoramic view of mountains & city. Knotty wood paneling in Dining Room, wall of brick with another fireplace, wood floor & ceiling give this room a distinctively rustic feel. Built-in bookcases in Dining Room & Hallway add detail & functionality. Original kitchen & baths w/ generous spaces. Pool with spectacular views of San Gabriel mountains".

The new owners have plans to replace it with five, three-story single-family homes over the objection of neighbors. On December 5, 2013, the city’s Cultural Heritage Commission took under consideration the declaration of the house as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, a move that for now would prevent its demolition. The Tirado-Lion-Peligri Residence is located at 2925 Waverly Drive in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
