Holmby Hills real estate is the least-well-known corner of LA’s Platinum Triangle of luxury market. The other two corners, Bel Air and Beverly Hills, get more of the ink, the sitcoms, the soap operas, the star map traffic. Smaller Holmby Hills gets less attention… and its affluent residents like it just fine that way. Funky, exclusive, a mix of historic chateaux and ultramodern palaces, Holmby Hill stands toe-to-toe and even outdoes LA at its most posh.
Splayed to the north and south of a ritzy stretch of Sunset Boulevard, just east of UCLA and bordering the Los Angeles Country Club, Holmby Hills embodies elegance and aspirational living. In the 50s and 60s, Elvis Pressley used to organize touch football games in Holmby Park. The Playboy Mansion is here, right down the street from Aaron Spelling’s 4.7-acre estate, which was listed recently for $150 million and sold to a British heiress. HILTON&HYLAND was involved with both sales.
The architecture in Holmby Hills ranges from Mediterranean to French, English Revivalist to Ultramodern, ranging from recent builds to 1929 vintage, ironically erected shortly after the Great Depression started.
There’s really only one kind of house in Holmby Hills, though—sprawling mansion. Minimal deed restrictions and a long ban on subdivisions have given luxury builders free rein to enact their wildest visions of conspicuous opulence.
Median list prices don’t even break a sweat pushing north of $27 million at $2,760 per square foot. “Entry-level” in Holmby Hills isn’t really a thing… and that suits the high-net-worth neighbors. Residents of Holmby Hills value their privacy, as evidenced by the gated lots and massive hedges that hide the palatial estates from prying eyes.
While a fully residential neighborhood, Holmby Hills’ proximity to UCLA, Century City, and Beverly Hills puts world-class culture, dining, shopping, and nightlife practically at the residents’ doorsteps.
