Super-pedigreed celebrity estate in Beverly Hills
The original architect of this gracious 1923 French country estate, Elmer Grey, also designed the nearby Beverly Hills Hotel and many other landmarks. Decades later, the home was enhanced by architect to the stars Ted Grenzbach. For decades, it was the family home of Al Martino, who played Johnny Fontaine in The Godfather and sang countless hits, including “Spanish Eyes.” Now this storied residence at 927 North Rexford Drive in the star-studded 90210 flats is on the market for the first time in decades, listed by Aaroe Estates Directors Mary Brill and Jane Brill Gavens of The Brill Group in Beverly Hills at $7,999,000. The impressive five-bedroom, seven-bath estate, which includes an extraordinary two-story guest house/studio, commands a luxurious 16,180 sq. ft. lot on one of Beverly Hills’ most distinguished streets. The compound overlooks an expansive backyard with broad plaza, fountain and pool. The floor plan of the 5,500+ square foot main home is ideal for entertaining. A center entry leads to an open arrangement of family, dining and living areas, all flowing to the lavish grounds. The state-of-the-art kitchen is designed to suit a cooking devotee like Martino. Light streams through the many windows and French doors of the home, highlighting its golden oak floors and four welcoming fireplaces. The second level features a huge master suite with terrace and walk-in closets, joined by three more bedroom suites. A first-floor maid’s room/office completes the private amenities. The fabulous, fully equipped guest house with loft and fireplace is home to Bugsy Siegel's original home bar, acquired when the gangster’s Holmby Hills mansion was demolished. With a history dating back to the silent film era and a timelessly modern spirit, this is a home to treasure for generations.
