This residence is magical and considered a jewel of Streamline Moderne architecture, with striking horizontal lines, round edges, flat roof, and wing-like Pergola gates. William Kesling's Streamline Moderne home has was built in 1936 for Wallace Beery, an Academy Award winning actor. Beery stared in films such as "The Lost World," "Robin Hood," and "The Champ." He was the first husband of the famous Gloria Swanson, star of "Sunset Boulevard," and was later married to Rita Gilman.
William Kesling's architectural style showcases his love of Hollywood, curved forms, straight lines and aesthetics. Once he began working with Wallace Beery, who had a love for airplanes, Kesling incorporated aviation and aeronautic elements into the design.
The style is "Streamline Moderne," which features curves, differing from art deco which is angular; streamline accentuates the horizontal and art deco emphasizes the vertical; streamline is clean and spare; art deco is ornamented with varied geometric shapes.
Stay here and you'll take a piece of Hollywood history away with you for the rest of your life!
