A Toluca Lake home built in 1928 -- designed by famed architect Paul Williams and once owned by Henry "The Fonz" Winkler -- has been listed for $8 million, a Beverly Hills real estate firm announced today.
The Tudor revival estate, twice featured in Architectural Digest, was built for screenwriter Gladys Lehman, one of the founders of the Screenwriters Guild and the Motion Picture Relief Fund.
In the 1980s, the house, featuring leaded windows, dark wood flooring, intricate molding and custom wall inlays, was owned by Winkler of "Happy Days" fame.
"It's a special honor to represent an estate with such a superb pedigree," said Craig Strong of Aaroe Estates, who has the listing. "Williams' renowned mastery of historic architectural styles is reflected in every line -- it's a magnificent interpretation of Tudor charm and elegance."
