HISTORY OF THE VILLA CARLOTTA
The Villa Carlotta Apartments at 5959 Franklin Avenue were built in 1927 by Luther T. Mayo Inc. and architect Arthur E. Harvey for Eleanor Ince, silent screen starlet and the widow of Hollywood silent-film pioneer Thomas Ince. The couple’s original house was across the street where they built the Chateau Elysee. Thomas Ince died mysteriously in 1924 following a trip on William Randolph Hearst’s yacht; it’s rumored that Hearst helped finance the building out of guilt over Ince’s death.
Tenants over the years have included gossip columnist Louella Parsons (who was on that fateful boat trip), Hearst’s mistress Marion Davies (same), director George Cukor, producer David O. Selznick, Edward G. Robinson, and architect Wallace Neff. Rickie Lee Jones was a longtime resident, and
Jim Morrison of the Doors used to pen poetry and songs in the courtyard. Parsons wrote her popular gossip column from her two-bedroom town home there. More recent residents have included Neil Patrick Harris, post Doogie Howser and Michael Biehn, post The Terminator.
The Villa Carlotta was designated a Los Angeles historic cultural monument in 1986. Its centerpiece is a 1,500-square-foot grand lobby with hand-painted coffered ceilings, detailed mahogany woodwork, marble statuary, a stone fireplace and original lighting fixtures. The apartments wrap around a lushly landscaped center courtyard with fountains and private seating areas.
