Tropical British Isles?
I've included several posts featuring South Pasadena's Victorian and Craftsman homes. Here is an example of one of the more incongruous styles of architecture found here -- and around the greater Los Angeles area. Is it just me, or does a proper English country house look a little bit weird surrounded by all those palms? In a spec meeting, I'd sum this up as Wuthering Heights: Pacific Coast Edition.
(For those of you paying attention... is that an excellent example of San Gabriel Valley topiary, or what?!)
