The 1924 Bernheimer Estate, located at 16980 Sunset Blvd in Pacific Palisades, which was designed to resemble a pagoda and housed a collection of oriental art, was demolished in the late 1950s. The Bernheimer Gardens flourished as a tourist attraction until 1941, when public opinion changed due to WWII. Eventually the gardens fell victim to two major landslides and were destroyed. Brothers Charles and Aldoph Bernheimer built a second Japanese estate and gardens in Hollywood, now home to Yamashiro restaurant. Bronze elephants are crossing water on a tree log.
