This magnificent Coldwater Canyon estate now on the market for $45 million is fit for a star

This stunning resort-style compound once owned by the late Hollywood talent agent Ed Limato offers every possible reason to never consider leaving home. Think two incredible structures—a main house and guest house—along with a game room, screening room, pool, lighted tennis court and much more.
“The home has a very rich history, as Ed used to host his pre-Oscar parties and movie screenings there,” says Stephen Resnick, who is co-listing listing the property known as “Heather House” with Jonathan Nash, both of Hilton & Hyland, for $45 million. “The size of the land, the amenities, attention to detail and the quality of the build also are stand-out features.”
Situated on 1.6 acres at 9550 Heather Road in Beverly Hills—on a quiet street just minutes from the area’s upscale shops and restaurants—the 20-bedroom property was built in 1937. It was purchased in 1956 by Limato, who represented high-profile celebrities such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Nicolas Cage, Mel Gibson, Steve Martin, Diana Ross, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington and Sylvester Stallone (who gifted him a duo of lions that now stand guard in the backyard).
Expect approximately 20,000 square feet of newly renovated living space spread among the French Regency-style main house and brand-new Neo-Georgian guest house, each with two levels. Upping the wow factor in the main house: gilt furnishings and marble-clad baths; an exclusive art collection curated by Creative Art Partners; a 16-seat movie theater; a billiard room; an aquarium; a fully ventilated cigar room; a wine cellar; a gym; a professional tennis court; and an over-sized pool. The guest house, meanwhile, boasts a Moroccan-inspired spa and a golf-simulation room.
