This well maintained Victorian with Second Empire influences was the home of William Lees Judson. The home still sits across the street from Judson Studios, which at one time housed the USC School of Fine Arts and Architecture. The zany eclectic nature of the house stems from the fact that some of the students were involved in the design. The house features an arroyo stone ground floor and an alternating shingle pattern on the second story. A turret sits toward the rear of the right side of the house. The owners scrapped unsightly excess mortar off the arroyo stone wall and returned it to its original state. The yard has also been upgraded by planting Cypress trees and a jasmine vine. The owner’s dedication to the historic integrity of this Garvanza gem is definitely deserving of the 2014 award.
