Cecil B. De Mille purchased the Spanish Colonial Revival C.F. Perry Residence, originally built in 1914, for his own use in 1916. He paid a significant for $27,893 for the property, but also bought the adjoining dwelling, owned by the architect William J. Dodd (1862-1930), and joined the two buildings. De Mille commissioned Dodd to remodel the doubled abode for him in the early 1920s. De Mille changed the former Dodd House to include offices, library, screening room and guest accommodations. The producer/director lived here between 1916-1959.

The De Mille House was located in the Laughlin Park neighborhood of Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.
