Castera-Ward Residence

Designed by architect Paul Revere Williams in 1936, this Bel-Air residence is a rare and remarkably intact example of his residential work in concrete, as well as an important local example of French Provincial architecture.

It was also the longtime home of actress Jane Wyatt, who donated the home to the California Community Foundation before her death in October 2006.

Supported by more than 150 caissons extending up to forty-five feet into bedrock, the tower stood strong for more than sixty years, until the Northridge earthquake struck in 1994.
