A Santa Monica beach house built for silent screen star Norma Talmadge in 1930 has sold for $8 million. According to the L.A. Times, other notables who have lived or stayed at the French Normandy-style oceanfront compound have included actor Cary Grant, composer Irving Berlin, and business magnate Howard Hughes. The 5,530-square-foot residence contains a foyer, circular staircase, formal living room, dining room, sun room, wine cellar, butler’s pantry, five bedrooms, and five baths. 

On the ocean-facing side of the home are covered and open patios, a heated swimming pool, paddle tennis/pickleball court and raised viewing deck, while a motor court with a four-car garage fronts the quarter-acre property. Jade Mills and Tiffany Mills of Coldwell Banker were the listing agents, with Jamie Nugent of Hilton & Hyland and Kelsey Kroon of Douglas Elliman representing the buyer.
