If finding a home that was owned by not one but two Oscar winners is on your to-do list for 2020, this Pacific Palisades listing can check off that goal before the champagne cork hits the floor.
This 1933 Pacific Palisades home was owned most recently by Whoopi Goldberg, who sold the home last year. The new owner has placed the Amalfi rim home on the market again, and what a gorgeous home it is.
The home embraces its Streamline Moderne style — an Art Deco variant that features curving forms, long horizontal lines, and the occasional nautical element. Called Style Paquebot, or “Ocean liner style,” in France, where it originated, it was meant to convey sleekness.
But if a pedigree that includes one Oscar-winning owner wasn’t enough, Mansion Global reports that the home was also once owned by David Niven as well. Niven, who won an Oscar in 1958 for his role in Separate Tables, died in 1983.
The Pacific Palisades home sits on a 28,000 square foot lot, surrounded by gorgeous landscaping and mature trees, and is gated.
The 7,000 square foot main house has five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a total of seven bathrooms altogether, and plenty of room for entertaining.
And despite having a few owners since 1933, the home retains many of its original features, including the black and white checkered floor in the foyer, crown moldings, fireplaces, and an onyx-clad master bathroom.
The kitchen has gotten a remodel, and is generously sized for family cooking fun, or for caterers to move around easily. It also has great views of the swimming pool.
The property also includes a separate guest house.
