Property description

Historic Hollywood sets the stage for this remarkable 1920's Hollywood Hills mansion, built for silent film star Theda Bara and once the home of Rudolph Valentino. This Beaux Arts residence features exquisite architectural details such as large ornate windows, plaster ceilings, hardwood floors, antique light fixtures and doors leading to some of the most private gardens in the Hollywood Hills. There is also a unique glass tile, salt-water pool with fountains and patio areas.

The property is a ten minute walk or short cab ride from Hollywood Blvd and its many attractions including the Historic Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theater, Hollywood and Highland shopping and entertainment facility. At the same time, the property is incredibly private and serene.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with en suite bathrooms. The 4th bedroom, also with its own bathroom, is downstairs and private. It has its own entrance near the kitchen and pool, making it an ideal room for a nanny, mother in-law, or young adult. It is available by request.

This bright and airy, fully gated home is nestled in an area known as the Hollywood Dell. The Dell is a quiet enclave and home to countless past and present celebrities, but just a stones throw away from all of Hollywood's main attractions.

The home is a sought-after location for fashion, decor and celebrity photo shoots.*Different policies apply-please inquire. It offers modern amenities such as AC/heat, wireless Internet, flat-screen TV's and a designer Chef's kitchen. Updated bathrooms include a master bath with steam room. The interior furnishings are elegant and eclectic mixing antiques with modern touches.

Please e-mail for filming rates and policies. Not available for events or parties.
