One of LA's most iconic, confidential and legendary property is now open to the public. Built in 1926 and is a prized property for collectors of fine architecture. As the former residence of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, actress Marion Davies, and even used as a honeymoon hideaway for The Kennedys, and is a one-of-a-kind home. Set at the end of one of the city's longest private driveway, this stunning estate pays tribute to its architect, Gordon Kaufman. The main house has 9 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms and enjoys a seemingly endless list of opulent living spaces. A formal living room is set under a soaring 22 ft arched hand-painted ceiling, a historic 2-story wood-paneled library, plus a billiards room w/ fireplace reminiscent of Hearst Castle, an art-deco nightclub, 2 projection/screening rooms, grand state public rooms, and entertaining areas that can accommodate 1,000 guests. Complimenting the main house, the ancillary improvements include 2 staff/guest apartments, a pool house, a tennis pavilion, and a two-story 5 bedroom gatehouse. All this is set on 3.5 acres of private grounds with sun-soaked terraces, lawns, waterfalls & Olympic sized pool. Long driveway with total privacy.
