WALLACE NEFF HOMES

During Hollywood’s Golden Age, Wallace Neff (1895-1982) became one of Southern California’s most distinguished residential architects responsible for some of the Los Angeles area’s most iconic houses. Mr. Neff’s privileged upbringing, whose grandfather was Andrew McNally of Rand-McNally publishing, laid the groundwork for his illustrious career full of a taste for the luxurious and an appreciation for architecture. After studying at MIT, Neff returned home to Altadena where he took a job as a draftsman for a shipyard, all the while working on private projects on the side.

Neff was celebrated for his pioneering designs of Southern California homes that drew on Italian, Spanish Colonial-Revival and French Normandy influences. In the 1930’s his work drew the attention of Hollywood’s most famous stars, moguls, and industry tycoons. His elite clientele once included Judy Garland, Cary Grant, Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, his work for them considered to be the epitome of Southern California architecture, with motor courts, vaulted hand-carved ceilings, flowing fountains and lush landscaping. Today, Wallace Neff homes are highly collectible and prized by current Hollywood celebrities as well as vintage California architectural aficionados.
