Audrey Hepburn’s Former Hollywood Home For Sale

SLIDESHOW: The 7,000-square-foot Colonial Revival house was designed in 1938 by a man often called the architect to the stars: Paul Williams.

The house in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, was also once home to other Hollywood stars, including David Niven, Mia Farrow and, most recently, Eva Gabor.

Die-hard fans of Audrey Hepburn can not only acquire personal items treasured by the acting and fashion legend but live in the star’s former Los Angeles mansion too.

A sale in September has been recently confirmed by Christie’s, involving the Hollywood icon’s private wardrobe, film scripts, photography and more. Soon after, a Holmby Hills estate that once housed Audrey Hepburn and her husband Mel Ferrer came on the market for nearly US$14 million.

The 7,000-square-foot house was designed in 1938 by a man often called the architect to the stars, Paul Williams, also the first African-American to receive an American Institute of Architects Gold Medal. The two-storey Colonial Revival home on Delfern Drive not only attracted Hepburn, but other members of silver-screen royalty such as David Niven, Mia Farrow and, most recently, Eva Gabor.

In fact, the property is officially hailed as the Eva Gabor Estate. After Gabor’s death in 1995, the home was sold to its current owners for reportedly over US$2 million.

Ten years later, the estate originally came on the market for close to US$17 million. It is now offered at about 18 percent off via agent Jade Mills of Jade Mills Estates through Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

Mills said: “The home offers a stately presence and exquisite curb appeal with double iron gates leading onto a large brick motor court and elegant facade.”

As per the listing, the estate is sited on approximately 1.1 acres with private tennis court, lawns, gardens, patios, a 700-square-foot guest house, an approximately 1,000-square-foot staff apartment or detached office, and large pool.

Rooms in the main house include a formal foyer, living room and family room with fireplaces, formal dining room, breakfast room, and kitchen. There are four bedrooms upstairs, including the master suite, and two staff bedrooms downstairs.
