Hollywood legends including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Prelsley and Dean Martin have all called Trousdale Estates home.

A brief history

Trousdale Estates was formerly an orange grove that was part of the 425-acre Doheny Family Ranch, then the largest estate in Beverly Hills. In 1928, the Greystone Mansion – now a historic landmark and popular film location – was custom built in the area.

In 1954, developer Paul Trousdale purchased 410 acres of the estate and built hillside and single-family homes for sale. All homes in the community were initially designed as single-story properties to protect their hillside views while providing generous living spaces of at least 3,000 square feet. A number of homes were designed by famed master architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Wallace Neff, Richard Dorman, Paul R. Williams, Cliff May, and A. Quincy Jones.

Today, many of the prestigious original homes in the neighborhood still stand intact. Discriminating buyers will find quite a few Trousdale Estates homes for sale boasting the coveted architectural provenance that draws buyers to the neighborhood.

Others have given way to new construction homes in a variety of architectural styles, such as Contemporary and Mediterranean.
