There's a neighborhood of century-old mansions tucked away amid the hustle and bustle of urban Los Angeles, and it isn't Windsor Square or even the newer Hancock Park. It's Country Club Park, southwest of Koreatown. The area was developed in the 1910s and “matured in the 1920s boom years,” according to the city's Office of Historic Resources. Architectural styles include Craftsman, Tudor Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Colonial Revival and Mediterranean Revival.

Take a look at our photo essay to see some of the gems we found, and then go out and poke around yourself. Who knows what other undiscovered treasures exist just waiting for someone to find them?
