Description

This house for L.B. Adelman is sited on a portion of the former Charlie Chaplin estate in Beverly Hills (the tennis court on the property is the original Chaplin Estate court). The post and beam design was designed by Abell and O'Neil Ford, a Texas-based architect.
In 2019, the house was considered for the Beverly Hills Register of Historic Properties, since it has retained a significant number of its original features.
