Cecil B demille estate in Laughlin Park Laughlin Park is an exclusive, gated community in Los Feliz that was rated by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the "top five" neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Established in 1905, the enclave is secure behind five gates between Los Feliz Blvd and Franklin Avenue on the Western edge of Los Feliz. Laughlin Park was once home to many of Hollywood's rich and famous including W.C. Fields, Charlie Chaplain and Cecil B. DeMille. DeillMe's villa was built by developer Homer Laughlin who's intention was to build a neighborhood of 40 villas. Subsequent lot divisions have brought that number to 60 homes. DeMille's villa was built on the largest, highest lot in Laughlin Park providing majestic panoramic views. Today many well-known celebrities and filmmakers are still drawn to the neighborhood with its quiet seclusion and peaceful tree shaded streets.   The Laughlin Park enclave includes the largest and most expensive homes in the Los Feliz area. The grand estates run the gamut in architectural styles from English, Mediterranean and Craftsman to Traditional and Modernist, many with remarkable city and ocean views. The area saw its share of works a number of renowned architects. Lloyd Wright figured prominently in the design of more than five Laughlin Park homes. The Laughlin Park community remains well-cared for largely due to the effort of its voluntary homeowners association which maintains the gates and the private streets.
