Sweet Digs: Hollywood Connection - The First Home Built in the Hollywood Riviera

Sweet Digs: Hollywood Connection - The First Home Built in the Hollywood Riviera

Published by South Bay Digs
In the early 1920s, developer Clifford Reid returned to Los Angeles from his honeymoon on the French Riviera and envisioned transporting the glamour of France’s seaside playground to closer shores. He would build his beach oasis not for aristocrats and heiresses, but for Hollywood stars. He named his development the Hollywood Riviera, and as king of the new kingdom, he built a palace for himself and his wife, Ella.

Today, Reid’s Italian Revival Hollywood Riviera mansion belongs to Bob and L’Cena Rice, who take pride in their home’s pedigree and regale a visitor with tales of its storied past. “These tiles were brought over from Italy,” L’Cena says of the brilliant blue, red and marigold ceramic tiles that deck the floor of the soaring entry hall. “Mrs. Reid furnished the house, and she went to Italy and bought several pieces. Some of the furnishings she bought at the [1939] New York World’s Fair.”
