L.A.'s Delightfully Grand Chandler Mansion Returns to Market

New, 1 comment

Known for decades as a Los Angeles power family, the Chandlers—long-time publishers of the Los Angeles Times—held court at this dazzling Windsor Square estate, known as Los Tiempos. Built in 1913 to designs by a trio of architects that included Julia Morgan, the favored architect of another publishing baron, William Randolph Hearst, Los Tiempos was first occupied by Dr. Peter Janss, a prominent developer, before its purchase by the Chandlers. During their time in the house, they welcomed Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. That happy saga of power and pandering ended with the death of Norman Chandler's widow, Dorothy Buffum Chandler, in 1997. The house then passed through a series of owners, was the subject of a legal dispute, and then enjoyed a lavish revamp at the hands of the latest owners. Now, after untold millions in renovation costs, Los Tiempos is listed for $11.25M.
