Rodeo Realty’s Joe Babajian lists a Historic Hollywood Hills Home

This newly remodeled 4,200-square-foot home in the Hollywood Hills has been home to many different celebrities for almost 100 years.

In 1931, Bela Lugosi, famous for playing the original “Count Dracula”, purchased the home. Ten years later, in the 1940’s Martha O’Driscoll, coincidentally also known for a Dracula movie, “House of Dracula”, moved into the home. She sold it in 1950 to Frank Sinatra shortly after his marriage to Ava Gardner who made it their first home together.

Located in the gated community of Outpost Estates, the home has just been remodeled and neighbors with residents just as famous as the past owners, Charlize Theron, Salma Hayek, and Ben Stiller to name a few.

Some of the features of the home include a brand new kitchen, pocket sliding doors between the living room and patio to make it one giant living space, and gray-stained French oak floors.

The master bedroom on the third floor has a patio and is accompanied by two other bedrooms. The lower level is a full guest suite.

This historic Hollywood home with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms is listed for $4.95 million by our own Joe Babajian.
