Steeped in Hollywood Fame, this distinguished Holmby Hills compound — called “The 580” — offers everything a celebrity would want: privacy, space and tranquility on approximately 1.65 landscaped acres.
Built in 1927, the 11,653 square-foot estate has been exquisitely maintained over the decades and was renovated in 2003-2004 to respectfully bring it into the 21st century. Past and present have been lovingly balanced both inside and out. You can practically feel the history in the timbered cathedral ceilings, handcrafted wrought iron, painted tiles and other Old World details, while updates in the gourmet kitchen and baths offer everything one needs for comfortable modern-day living.
The two-story chandelier entry sets the stage for the rest of the residence, as the grand living room impresses with its trussed ceiling and ornate fireplace. Meant to provide a sense of seclusion right in the heart of the city, the estate gives the owner every reason to shelter in place in total luxury. There is no reason to ever leave the property, with so many sophisticated spaces to spend time in, like the formal dining room, breakfast room, family room, library/study, home theatre (formerly a Bel-Air “Circuit” Projection Theater), art studio, playroom and game room with bar, lounge and refrigerated wine cellar. There are eight total bedrooms on the property, including the gorgeous main suite with barrel-vaulted ceiling, fireplace, sitting area, office, walk-in closets and a lavish spa-style bath. Full staff quarters also include a catering kitchen. A breathtaking outdoor setting — among the most-wanted amenities today — inspires with a romantic outdoor living loggia, Juliet’s balcony, courtyard and gardens. Meant to be completely self-contained, the magnificent grounds feel resort-like, thanks to a tennis court with pavilion, pool, spa, cabana, basketball court, flat lawns, playground and rose gardens. A detached one-bedroom guesthouse with a kitchen, motor court, two-car porte-cochre and three-car garage completes this rare and magical offering. It is an exquisite private oasis worthy of its star-studded address.
