Hollywood Royalty Owned Homes
A Santa Barbara-inspired Home in Manhattan Beach and A Entertaining Enclave In Beverly hills
Built almost a century ago, this gorgeous hacienda-style hideaway has served as home to the likes of Hollywood royalty Katharine Hepburn, Boris Karloff and, most recently, noted producer John Goldwyn and hotelier Jeff Klein. Now on the market in the coveted Beverly Hills Post Office area, tucked away between Loma Vista Drive and Coldwater Canyon, the 1-acre estate stuns with its fanciful features of yesteryear.
Think white-washed brick walls; exposed wood-beam ceilings; a terra-cotta roof; six indoor and two outdoor wood-burning fireplaces; antique-style chandeliers; and a Spanish mosaic tile staircase. Outdoors, the resort-like grounds reveal a pool, terraced gardens, rolling lawns, eucalyptus hedges, orchards and a rose garden, while other amenities include a library, wine cellar and walk-in bar. “This home’s [O]ld-[W]orld charm, combined with its storied legacy, make it possible for the future owners to own a piece of history,” says listing agent Brendan Fitzpatrick. “It’s truly a timeless masterpiece!”

Found on the largest lot in Palisades Highlands—perched on 3-plus terraced acres at the end of a cul-de-sac—this secluded refuge once owned by Goodfellas actor Ray Liotta comes complete with its own irrigation system and self-contained water well. There’s also a set of conceptual plans for up to two tennis courts, a guest house, secondary pool and golf-cart path ascending to the upper portion of land that would render an exceptional ocean view. “This is truly an amazing opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind property with a gorgeous and pristine 8,576-square-foot, gated and totally private Mediterranean estate,” says listing agent Robert Radcliffe. “It’s perfect for anyone who requires total seclusion.”
Among the highlights of this impressive home: a massive game room that could be converted into a music studio, staff quarters or office; lavish master suite sporting a sitting room, fireplace, and spa-like bath with dual vanities and a large soaking tub. Finally, is the charming central courtyard with resort-style pool and spa.
