Gear up for the Fourth of July weekend with a slice of Americana in Beverly Hills!
This week, we are giving you an inside look at the legendary Harry Warner estate, once home to film industry pioneer and Warner Bros. co-founder, Harry Warner. It’s a drop in the bucket at $32.5 million. After all, how do you put a price on Hollywood history?
Let’s take a look around.
Legendary Warner Estate Hosted Movie Stars, American Presidents, And Heads Of State
First, the palatial manse spans nearly 13,000 square feet on 1.14-pristine-acres. It rests on a rare street-to-street lot. And it has played host to movie-stars, American Presidents and Heads of State from all corners of the world since the late 1920s. Just imagine the conversations happening around that swanky bar!
According to Variety, “The home was featured as O.J. Simpson’s home in the FX series “The People v. O.J. Simpson” — the den was converted to the disgraced football pro’s trophy room — and over the years has been the site of numerous high-octane fundraisers for Democratic Party movers and shakers including Al Gore, John Kerry and Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
A Landmark Listing On North Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills
A coveted landmark on famed North Rexford Drive, the home is a remarkable example of French Country meets Tudor Revival. It masterfully blends elegant entertaining spaces with intricate architectural details to breathtaking effect.
Among these are generous Parquet de Versailles wood floors. There are also lead glass windows from Italy, a 16th century mantlepiece from the Palace of Versailles, and wood beams from a church in England. Of course, one can only dream of dining with Hollywood royalty in this spectacular setting!
Highly Secure And Outfitted With Luxurious Amenities
Listing agent, Joyce Rey with Coldwell Banker tells us, “The original Warner Brothers estate represents a legendary chapter in Hollywood history. It is the ideal ultra-private home for entertaining with exquisite indoor/outdoor living!”
Additionally, the estate features three gated entry points enveloped in mature trees and gardens for ultimate security. But even more impressive are the lavish amenities.
The seven-bedroom, nine-full-bathroom mansion is a head-turning display of luxury living. It boasts a stately motor court, screening room, tennis court, and dramatic lagoon-style pool and grotto. The rumor is that Marilyn Monroe slept in the guest house.
