Beverly Hills' Tregg Rustad and Peter Maurice list home of comedian/actor Richard Lewis

treggpeter-richard

Making headlines this week is a listing by Rodeo Realty’s Beverly Hills agents, Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad.

Their $1.599 million listing is the recent home to its longtime resident, comedian/actor/author Richard Lewis. The home has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, People, Yahoo, Variety, and Mansion Global.

The hillside Mediterranean villa was also once home to actor Eddie Albert, along with various other screenwriters and directors. The home was built in the magical Hollywood year of 1926 – the same year the nearby Sunset Tower and Chateau Marmont hotels opened their doors to fame, glory and gossip.

Tucked away in a bedrock hill in Laurel Canyon, the pulse of Hollywood from Chaplin to Hendrix to celebs du jour, surrounds this home.

The property has an open-air living room with full wet bar, a spacious formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a magnificent media room/lounge. On its ‘penthouse level’ is a full master retreat with spectacular city views and separate office/sitting room. For visitors, there’s an additional, private first floor guest suite with an attached bath.

The home is located on a historic block at the end of a quiet cul de sac, yet within moments of the Sunset Strip.
