A historic mansion and beautiful gardens offer a picturesque location for weddings, social, and corporate events

Gurdon W. Wattles' estate and gardens in Hollywood is an outstanding example of Southern California landscape architecture and the important role it played in the development of the region in the early twentieth century. "Jualita" is one of the few remaining landscapes reminiscent of another era and tradition, possessing a genuine integrity of setting, design, workmanship, and association. The house of Spanish architecture was designed by Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey, two prominent Los Angeles architects. They also designed the gardens. Mr. Wattles' father met the head gardener, Alexander Urquhart on his travels. Urquhart worked as head gardener from 1910 until 1930. The concept for the garden was formulated during trips to Mexico and Japan. During a trip to Japan, his father purchased a tea house, shrines and lanterns and had them shipped back to use in the gardens. Four gardens had been developed: the first corresponding to the architecture of the house, the second, Italian, the third, American, and the fourth, Japanese.

The Wattles residence was opened in the spring of 1909. Designed in a Mediterranean/Mission style, the home is two stories and has a full basement. The first floor rooms include a paneled library, formal dining room., large living room with a picture window to the south gardens, two large bathrooms off the entrance hall, servant's dining hall and kitchen and pantry. The front and rear terraces serve as extensions of the living spaces. Five bedrooms and three baths are on the second floor.
