The home was located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd. on property Longpre´ obtained from Daeida Hartell Wilcox Beveridge after he moved to Los Angeles in 1889. The artist, who was born in Lyons, France, desired the 65-foot-deep lots for a large flower garden, which at one time included over 4,000 roses. The residence was a popular tourist destination in the late 1890s/early 1900s. The home was demolished in 1927.
Partial view of the De Longpre residence shows the second level and rooftop of the house, surrounded by tall trees, in Hollywood.
