The turreted residence was the longtime home of character actor Morgan Woodward
Now available for the first time in over half a century is a fanciful Spanish Moorish castle built in the heady days of early Hollywood.
Located at 2111 Rockledge Road in Hollywood Heights, the 1924 castle was the longtime home of Morgan Woodward, a character actor known for playing such memorable heavies as Cool Hand Luke’s Boss Godfrey, the ruthless chain gang guard whose eyes are always hidden behind mirrored sunglasses.
While the turreted residence looks to be in need of restoration, it’s not hard to envision it turning into a real showstopper. Among the three-bedroom, two-bath home’s outstanding traits are refinished hardwood floors, elaborate plaster work and moldings, wrought-iron grilles and railings, original built-in cabinetry, gorgeous painted tile, and a patio fountain.
Occupying a 4,474-square-foot lot, the property is being offered “as-is” with an asking price of $1.375 million. Todd Henricks of Berkshire Hathaway has the listing.
