Built in 1939 by David O. Selznick, this celebrated Beverly Hills estate by architect Roland Coate enchants with timeless elegance, magnificent gardens and a storied past. A long celebrity pedigree makes it even more beguiling: Sammy Davis Jr. and Edward Doheny are among its legendary former owners. Enter through a privacy gate and step into another world. Beautifully proportioned interiors pay homage to classical forms and exquisite detailing. A grand entry leads to a formal living room with marble fireplace, graced by hand-crafted pine paneling, carved moldings, large light-filled windows overlooking the pool and private gardens by David Jones Landscaping. Expansive public spaces offer opportunity for gracious entertaining: a family room with wet bar and drop-down movie screen, library, a dining room touched with a fireplace and a lovely sun room, which opens to the outdoors. The sumptuous master wing beckons with his and hers baths, large walk-in closet, a fireplace and sitting area. A lower level game room/guest suite opens onto the garden.
