Best known for his elaborate and period revival homes and buildings in Southern California, Kyson incorporates classic ornamentation and design throughout his structures.

His time spent in Europe following his graduation from Columbia University School of Architecture is reflected in the residence commissioned by George Hoag. A sheltering arcade/patio with buon fresco paintings leads out to the gardens and detached garage with second floor chauffeur quarters. A grand circular staircase emphasizing Vitruvian principles of soundness, utility and attractiveness ascends gracefully to the second floor suites.

Enjoying the successes of the late 1920’s, Kyson’s skillful mastery of Spanish Colonial design is reminiscent of Norma Desmond’s larger than life opulent mansion in Billy Wilder’s 1950 classic,Sunset Boulevard. Oversized common areas such as the living room, family room, dining room and solarium emphasize the grand proportions of the first floor along with Mr. Hoag’s office where he spent his winters away from the company he co-founded, JC Penny. Includes chauffeur quarters.
