Live like the King

It’s not the Heartbreak Hotel, but Elvis and Priscilla Presley definitely found a new place to dwell outside of Graceland in this French Regency-style home at 1174 Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills. “This storied property has spectacular panoramic city to ocean views and features the original entry gates where Elvis greeted fans, signed autographs and posed for photos,” says Mauricio Umansky of The Agency, who is listing the property for $30 million.

“Located at the end of Hillcrest—in Trousdale Estates, on the street known as ‘Billionaires Row’—the area remains a huge celebrity magnet, and owning a home with such a cultural significance would be a sound investment and of great value to the buyer.”

Built in 1958, the three-bedroom, five-bathroom home offers more than 5,000 square feet of renovated living space. Among the highlights of the residence, which housed the Presley family from 1967 to 1973, are soaring coffered ceilings; floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights that allow for plenty of natural light; and an attached guesthouse designed by renowned mid-century architect Rex Loter. According to Umansky, 1174 N. Hillcrest Road presents an unrivaled opportunity to tailor and personalize a magnificent view estate in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in LA.
