Movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn’s Beverly Hills mansion is on the market for $32 million. Built in the 1930s as the private domain of one of Hollywood’s most famous family for two generations, this outstanding home upholds its heritage of privileged traditions, impressive entertainment, intimate soirees and lavish celebrations.
Famed for his relentless ambition, legendary film producer Samuel Goldwyn even refinanced the home multiple times to fund his projects and was known for entertaining a slew of Hollywood stars at the estate. He founded Goldwyn Pictures, which later became the “G” of MGM film studios and produced countless well-known films including The Best Years of Our Lives, Guys & Doll, Wuthering Heights, and The Bishop’s Wife. His son Samuel Jr. was also a movie producer known for independent films like Mystic Pizza. The third generation of the family still remains in Hollywood—Samuel Jr.’s son, Tony, stars as U.S. President Fitzgerald Grant on ABC’s Scandal.
The 11,000 square foot Georgian estate sits on nearly two acres of prime real estate on a quiet cul-de-sac just behind the Beverly Hills Hotel. A superlative residence of impeccable design and magnificent detail, this Beverly Hills mansion represents the epitome of distinguished Hollywood glamour. The home has been beautifully maintained and includes 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and a private guest apartment over the garage.
The formal dining room is lined with French doors leading out to a trellis-covered brick patio and tranquil gardens beyond.
Whispers of old Hollywood still enliven the paneled, 35-millimeter screening room and library.
Ascend the elegant curving staircase to a spectacular master suite with a private veranda overlooking the grounds and the sparkling city lights below.
Beyond this Beverly Hills mansion itself, the expansive grounds offers a pool and pool house with kitchenette, sunken lighted championship tennis court, gated double motor court, spacious terraces, spectacular gardens, and rolling lawns.
