Description
With a front entrance relatively close to the public street, the Hornburg house allowed Woolf to create a walled entrance area, with a large imposing front wall, private courtyard, and then a classic Hollywood Regency front door, with a symmetrical centered door knob. The semi-circular driveway allowed for parking of cars, an important feature since Hornburg was the first dealer to import Jaguar cars to the United States. As a former advertising executive, Hornburg marketed the cars to Hollywood celebrities and movie executives.
