A small stairway leads to a Japanese style arbor and statuary on the estate and gardens owned by brothers Charles and Adolph Bernheimer, located at 1999 N. Sycamore Avenue in Hollywood. The terraces of the estate include 30,000 varieties of trees, shrubs, waterfalls, hundreds of goldfish, and even exotic birds and monkeys and were superbly landscaped in the Japanese tradition. After the estate left the Bernheimer family, it became the headquarters for the exclusive Hollywood "400 Club," an organization for the elite of the motion picture industry. After WWII, the home was remodeled and converted into apartments. Soon thereafter, Thomas O. Glover purchased the property and began the restoration of what was to become the Yamashiro restaurant.
