Villa Primavera (1923)

This Spanish style courtyard apartment building was built and designed by Arthur and Nina Zwebell. It is considered their first architectural and aesthetic triumph.  The courtyard features a stone fountain, large outdoor fireplace and dense landscaping.  Personalities who resided in the building include Katherine Hepburn and James Dean.  It was also used as a location in the 1950 film “In a Lonely Place.”


The property directly across the street is the Romanesque Villa at 1301-1309 Harper Avenue.
