Edward G. Robinson’s Former Estate: Made for the Marquee

Everyone in L.A. aspires to live like a star, but precious few do. Among them: the future buyer of 910 Rexford Drive, the onetime residence of Hollywood actor Edward G. Robinson.



A Palatial Estate Formerly Owned by Edward G. Robinson with the Comforts of Contemporary Living Is a New Beginning for the Beverly Hills’ Buyer

“Originally built in 1930, 910 Rexford Drive a stately home showcases ornate period details that create a wonderful juxtaposition between old-world charm and new-world sophistication,” says Jon Grauman, who is listing the private gated estate with Mauricio Umansky, both of The Agency, for $21.95 million.

Given the assets of this address—not least its location in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Beverly Flats north of Sunset Boulevard, near Rodeo Drive, Los Angeles County Club, and Franklin Canyon—it is considerably more priceless.

From its stonework edifice to its beautifully finished interior, the property wraps seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, six fireplaces, and a fashionably chandeliered grand foyer into its 10,000-square-foot floorplan.

With the formal living and dining rooms, wood-accented bar, library, and marble counter-topped kitchen with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, butcher block island, luxe appliances, and breakfast nook, all on the first floor, the upstairs introduces the primary suite with two custom walk-in closets and a spa-like bath with soaking tub, shower, and double vanity.

Additional bedrooms with balconies and garden views, a fitness room, laundry room, staff quarters, and detached guest house comprise the remaining space. Lush with greenery and a handsome stone patio, the backyard beckons with a pool, water slide, and spa, as well as areas to dine, lounge and entertain.
