Rodeo Realty’s Sherman Oaks agent Neal Leviton sells former home of legendary film actress Marion Davies

The desert estate originally built for American film actress Marion Davies has sold for $2,175,000. Rodeo Realty’s Neal Leviton was one of the listing agents to the property, which headlined in the Los Angeles Times and Curbed when it first went on the market.

The 9 bedroom, 11 bathroom estate has nearly 14,000 sq. ft. of living space and sits on 2.77 acres. Outdoors, the property includes a pond with a waterfall, a tennis court and a pool/spa. The grounds are immaculate and the property is maintained by two full-time employees.

In 1956, Davies, who was William Randolph Heart’s mistress and a legendary film star of the silver screen era in the 1930s, purchased a piece of land from the founder of Hyatt Hotels, Hyatt Robert von Dehn. She built a home on the property that is known as 1 Von Dehn Road in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Hearst was a publishing magnet, best known for building the nation’s largest newspaper chain and the magnificent and over the top Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA. Hearst and Davies were publicly a couple for many years, as Hearst’s wife would not grant him a divorce. They had a child together, Patricia Van Cleeve Lake, also an actress. Both kept Lake’s true identity a secret for many years.

Upon Davies death in 1961 the property transferred to the man she married after Hearst passed away in 1951, Horace Brown (another well-known actor).

Brown eventually sold the property in 1972 to the family that owned Trader Vic’s, a well-known restaurant chain. In 1996, the property was sold to a private family. The property was upgraded throughout the years to its present state today. The original structure still remains along with the upgraded portions of the home.

Rodeo Realty's Sunset agent John Galich gives LA Times expert insight on Silver Lake


The latest neighborhood spotlight by the Los Angeles Times is on Silver Lake.

For expert insight on the area the newspaper reached out to John Galich of Rodeo Realty.

In the article, the newspaper highlights the area for attracting new shops, bars and restaurants.

Screen Shot 2016-05-27 at 11.15.13 AM

Silver Lake’s killer views and convenience to downtown and Hollywood is what makes the area a popular neighborhood for creatives, according to the LA Times. The neighborhood is also showcased for its dramatic hillside homes. Its midcentury-modern designs are said to be in demand, with prices to match.

Though according to the LA Times, one of the challenges the neighborhood faces is low inventory.

Galich tells the newspaper that a lack of move-in-ready properties is one of the challenges his clients face when buying in the area. Still, he says he sees no diminishing level of interest in the area, especially among out-of-area clients.

“The majority of my buyers transferring from New York are in some sort of creative field,” Galich tells the LA Times. “Silver Lake “reminds them of everything that New York was.”

The Real Deal LA graphic

Catherine was born in NYC, raised in London, admitted to Harvard University, and transferred to Columbia.

It was fitting that the award-winning actress began her career in 1982, portraying Diana, Princess of Wales, in the biographical film The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana. Her mother is Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia and she is a direct descendant of Empress Catherine the Great of Russia. Her regal bearing made her the perfect choice to play Amanda Carrington on the hit TV series Dynasty.

Oxenberg, venturing into the unscripted world, satirized her princess image by showing a humorous, behind-the-scenes portrait of her life as a wife and mother of 5, on Lifetime’s I Married a Princess reality series.

Her most recent endeavors are inspired by her research in the realm of conscious sexuality and her passion to combat sexual illiteracy –

Van Dien’s breakthrough role was as the lead in Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 sci-fi film Starship Troopers. He was also in Tim Burton’s critically acclaimed film Sleepy Hollow as Brom Bones. He was the 20th Tarzan and the only one to ever film in Africa and ride an African elephant in the Warner Bros. 1998 film Tarzan and the Lost City.

His most recent victory has been behind the camera as a Director. He has directed three films in which he also starred. His second film Patient Killer won best film and best director awards and was bought and aired on Lifetime.

Los Angeles Times mentions three Rodeo Realty agents for selling most expensive homes between March 6 – 19


In the past two weeks, three Rodeo Realty agents sold two of the most expensive homes in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Making real estate news in the Los Angeles Times is Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad. The two agents sold a $9 million listing that belonged to Frederick Huntsberry, the chief operating officer of Paramount Pictures. According to the newspaper, the buyer was Francesco Aquilini, Canadian billionaire and owner of the Vancouver Canucks hockey franchise.

The agents listed the 4,507-square-foot home in February and closed sale in about a month. According to the LA Times, Huntsberry purchased the home six years ago for $3.84 million—less than half the price it was sold for.

The renovated midcentury home in Beverly Hills is said to have four bedrooms, four bathrooms, terrazzo floors, a dramatic according-style ceiling and walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that look out to a half-moon-shaped swimming pool.

Among the top residential real estate sales is also a Beverly Hills home that was sold for $7.5 million by Josh Flagg. According to the LA Times, the home was destined for the wrecking ball.

Flagg tells the newspaper the amount eclipsed the previous high-water mark for the area by $2 million. He represented both the buyer and the seller in the sale.

The sales report is for the period beginning March 6 and ending March 19.
