For the first few years in Southern California, the Feuchtwangers lived at 5 different addresses before they found the home they wanted to purchase. When they first moved to Southern California, the Feuchtwangers rented the home of their friend, Eva Herrmann, at 2088 Mandeville Canyon Road in Brentwood, while she was out of town. After Eva Herrmann returned, the Feuchtwangers rented a house for six months at 1650 Amalfi Drive in Pacific Palisades (1941)--the house shown here--which they learned about from their friend Liesl Frank (wife of Bruno Frank).
They had to move again, finding a home at 1744 Mandeville Canyon Road. Their next house was at 13827 Sunset Blvd. They were evicted after a brief stay which required them to relocate again--this time to 689 Amalfi Dr. Finally in November 1943, they purchased Villa Aurora at 520 Paseo Miramar.
