The views just don’t quit in Trousdale Estates, a subdivision of prestigious Beverly Hills. Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains just three short miles north of Rodeo Drive, the gated lots of Trousdale Estates were terraced, affording nearly every house with sweeping vistas of the Los Angeles Basin. Primarily mid-century modern homes with median prices of $11-12 million, Trousdale Estates also sports ultra-modern mansions, beautifully landscaped and tastefully designed.
The plot of land was known as Doheny Estates starting in the late 1800s, owned by the descendants of oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny. Doheny gifted to his son the property on which Greystone Mansion, a 55-room, 46,000 square foot Tudor Revival home designed by George Kaufmann and built in 1928 as the most expensive home in America at the time.
Greystone Mansion was purchased by the City of Beverly Hills in 1965, repurposed into a city park in 1971, and added to the National Registry of HIstoric Places in 1976. Graced by a famous descending staircase, Greystone Manor has served as a shooting location for films like The Big Lebowski, Ghostbusters II, The Social Network, Rush Hour, There Will Be Blood, Spider Man, and X-Men, as well as TV shows like Alias, Arrow, Knight Rider, MacGuyver, and The Young and the Restless.
Subdivided and redeveloped in the 1950s and 1960s, Trousdale Estates became a haven for some of the era’s biggest and most notorious stars. Rat Packers Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin lived here, as did Ray Charles, Tony Curtis, Howard Hughes, Elvis Presley, and Groucho Marx. To this day, Trousdale Estates continues to be a popular neighborhood for Hollywood’s rich and famous to hang their hats. The stars come to Trousdale Estates to enjoy superb privacy, as well as the security of 24/7 privately-retained armed security patrols to keep the peace.
