Harry Warner, a founder and the first president of Warner Bros., was a bigger-than-life figure in the Golden Years of Hollywood. One can only surmise that his bigger-than-lifestyle mansion in the heart of Beverly Hills was a prime fit with the film mogul’s persona.

Built in 1923, the glamorous Warner Estate features three gated entries and cobblestone drive surrounded by old growth trees, manicured gardens, a guesthouse, and tennis court as well as a pool and spa grotto. The sprawling 12,220-square-feet Tudor, which blends timeless architecture with modern opulence, contains six-bedroom suites, formal living and dining areas, a screening room, gym, and billiard room as well as a chef’s country kitchen, butler’s pantry, and porte-cochere.

In addition to vaulted and cathedral ceilings, marble and hardwood flooring, and four fireplaces, other main house features are an artist studio, library, and wet bar along with a three-car garage and golf cart garage.

The 1.14-acre estate likewise includes a fully equipped guesthouse with a kitchen, living room, bedroom, two bathrooms, a detached office, and garage.

Since the late 1920s – movie stars, U.S. Presidents, and Heads of State from around the world visited the historic Warner estate. (more…)

Turks and CaicosThe Turks and Caicos are hot, but it’s getting harder to sell a house in the Hamptons (good news if you want a deal, though). We also look at the most expensive listing this week, and a home in a certain favorite movie that is now up on the market.

Strait“I still have my home in San Antone
When I greet my neighbor with a ‘hi y’all’
I’m wealthy as a king upon a throne
You can have your mansion or your cottage small
I’ll just take my home in San Antone”

Or, you know, not. Seems George Strait is putting his San Antonio Santa Fe-style abode on the market — and if you’re looking for plenty of room to roam and some pretty plush living, this estate in The Dominion might just be the luxury property you’re looking for.

How do we know? Well, there’s the 12.2 secluded acres that come with the property at 10 Davenport, the one-of-a-kind design by the late Bill Tull, 14 hand-sculpted fireplaces, stained glass windows, Saguaro cactus rib shutters, custom long leaf yellow pine hardwood floors, and a custom-designed copper bar top, for starters.

bing crosbyIt’s been decades since the late Bing Crosby moved to the remote Elko, Nevada, but his presence still looms large in the town — and his ranch there is now up for sale.

Crosby purchased property there in the 1940s with the idea that it would become a respite for his family, remote enough to be able to shed the expectations that came with being a famous movie star and singer. He would end up owning seven ranches in the area around the town, which is about 400 miles from Las Vegas.

His Lawson Ranch property is up for sale for $7.28 million — and while that might seem like a premium, it includes a working cattle ranch, a private airstrip and hangar, and a six-bedroom main house that serves as a working bed and breakfast currently. There are additional buildings that serve as living quarters for guests and staff as well.

The original homestead from the 1860s is also still on the site, and has been preserved.

AspenWhile the house itself may look a bit different from when John Denver and his wife Annie bought it in the 1970s, the Aspen estate still has the views that inspired him to write “Starwood in Aspen.”

The local couple that bought the home in 2016 put the home on the market last month, after doing extensive remodeling, telling the Denver Business Journal that they installed new floors, and replaced the windows and the roof. They took pains to save the fireplaces, stained-glass work, copper sinks and fixtures, and the cabinetry, which was refinished and, in places, repurposed.

Denver purchased the home, and expanded it while he lived there. (more…)

Peter PanIt’s not every day that the estate of Peter Pan (or at least someone who played Peter Pan) hits the market, but when we saw this Norwalk, Connecticut listing from Holly Giordano, we knew we had to share.

In her Peter Pan, Nellie Forbush, Annie Oakley heyday, it’s not hard to imagine that Broadway legend (and Weatherford, Texas native, and mother to JR Ewing himself, Larry Hagman) Mary Martin needing a quiet place to kick back.

And this incredible three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, 3,160 square foot home sitting on more than two acres of rolling, lush grass would certainly do the trick.

But the home has a bit more history than just Martin — it was built not long after the U.S. won its independence from England. And its current owner has taken pains to marry the historical with the entertaining spaces Martin undoubtedly appreciated, along with the modern touches homeowners nowadays come to expect.

This ‘wow’ house was originally built in 1790 by Epenetus Kellogg then brought today’s high standards by recent home owner Helen Barr of Barr and Barr Bags,” said Giordano, who is with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
