History

Architects Arthur and Nina Zwebell designed the structure around a richly landscaped interior courtyard. Materials used reflected those commonly used in the Spanish Colonial Revival, Mediterranean Revival, Moorish Revival, and Mission Revival traditions: exposed wooden beams, cantilevered beams, carved wood, wrought iron, terracotta roof tiles, lightly textured buff-colored stucco, cast concrete, and brick. Over the years, a cast of actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood lived at the Andalusia, including Sondra Locke, Clara Bow, Marlon Brando, Jean Hagen, John Payne, Teresa Wright, Louis L'Amour, Claire Bloom, and Cesar Romero. Later, actor Jason Schwartzman occupied one of the units. The building is located in a historic neighborhood south of Sunset Boulevard near the Chateau Marmont. The same block of Havenhurst Drive also includes two other apartment buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places: the Colonial House (1416 Havenhurst Dr.) and the Ronda (1400–1414 Havenhurst Dr.).
