Mt. Olympus celebrates Greek Revival architecture, Mary Cummins

Mt. Olympus is a 300 acre single family housing development in the hills above Hollywood. The ground breaking for the project was June 28, 1963. The developer was Russ Vincent. The homes "celebrate" Greek Revival architecture. I didn't appraise this home but this is the general theme. Over the years people have been opting out of this style and going for modern or Mediterranean instead. The neighborhood was featured in the movie "Hollywood Homocide."

You can access the development off of Laurel Canyon Blvd. just north of Sunset. You can't miss the sign. Take a drive around the steep hill and you'll see some Greek Revival homes with lots of Greek statues.
