An estate often remembered as actress Eva Gabor’s residence has come on the market in Holmby Hills at $16.95 million.
The celebrity pedigree of the address includes a raft of other Hollywood notables. Actors Frank Sinatra, Mia Farrow, Audrey Hepburn and David Niven are among those who at some point called the Southern Colonial home.
Designed by architect-to-the-stars Paul Williams in 1938, the two-story house sits on more than an acre dotted with rose gardens and mature trees. An ornate frontispiece above the front door, shutters and flower boxes add charm to the white painted brick facade.
The grounds recall a lifestyle of entertaining and luxury befitting the socialite actress. The tennis court has a viewing deck, and a pool house with a kitchen and sauna spills off the swimming pool.
Beyond the brick motor court and the main home’s two-story columned portico, some 6,400 square feet of living space includes a formal dining room, a library/screening room, a bar, an office, six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. A caretaker’s cottage, a greenhouse and a detached office complete the grounds.
Gabor, who lived in the house for nearly 20 years until her death in 1995 at 76, gained a television audience on the 1960s sitcom “Green Acres.” Her voice worked included “The Rescuers Down Under” (1990) and “The AristoCats” (1970).
Josh Flagg of Rodeo Realty is the listing agent.
