Imagine taking a trip back in time and landing inside the gates of a grand estate, privately tucked among the rolling hills of Southern California’s Coldwater Canyon. This Spanish style hacienda, which was initially built in the 1930s, offers nearly 7,300 square feet of interior living space, which includes five bedrooms and seven baths, as well as a separate office.
There are numerous period features to be found here, including coffered and beamed ceilings, wrought iron railings, hardwood flooring, and several intricately carved fireplaces. The main level of the home offers a guest suite, along with two staff rooms. There is also a separate one-bedroom guest apartment on the property that could be ideal for rental income or an artist’s studio.
Once the home of publishing icon David Whitmire Hearst (son of William Randolph Hearst), this beautiful estate sits on more than 1 and ½ acres of professionally landscaped lawns. There is also a gated courtyard with a fountain, and a large in-ground pool – perfect for entertaining or family fun.
Located at 9641 Royalton Drive in Beverly Hills, this grand property is on the market for the first time in over 55 years. It is currently listed for sale at $13.5 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
