East meets West in this bold-featured Los Angeles home built by L. E. Gray in 1931.  Although the entrance gate features suitably ornate wrought iron grillwork in the Spanish tradition, the surrounding opening, with its broad arch springing from low stub walls, instead hints at the traditional Chinese moon gate.  The living room window nearby, with its deep reveal and curvilinear arch, once again reverts to a more familiar Spanish Revival form.  The whole singular composition is topped off by a pagoda-like, octagonal cupola in two stages--the lower one featuring curious elliptical windows, the upper one handsome pierced grillwork.
