History about the golden age of Hollywood is fascinating to me. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. But I become particularly interested in the topic when it comes to learning about the historic homes of Hollywood’s legendary directors, actors, and actresses. Cecil B. DeMille (1881-1959) is credited as being one of the founding father’s of Hollywood’s motion picture industry. He is the winner of numerous awards and honors, including two Academy Awards and the namesake Cecil B. DeMille Award given out at the Golden Globes bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign press for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without. –Cecil B. DeMille
The current owners of the Cecil B. DeMille estate embarked on a six-year renovation of the property paying close attention to the original architectural details. The pool with its arched fountains is a new addition although it looks like its always been there. The 2.1-acre estate in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles is for sale so if you like what you see you can make it yours for just under $30 million. No biggie, right??!!!
Be sure to check out the video to get your own personal tour of this stunning estate.
