Our imagination is always intrigued when we come across a new Beverly Hills compound for sale, as we can only dream of the magical wonders that lie beyond the gate. You may not find the city of Oz at the end of this brick road, but you will locate wondrous adventure when you reach the end of the path. There, you’ll discover Joyce Rey and Stacy Gottula’s newest listing, a spectacular Hampton-style residence that was originally built in 1941 by Paul Williams for Bert Lahr, the lion in The Wizard of Oz. An intriguing story in itself, the private estate was later owned by Betty Grable, Harry James, and Paul McCartney, just to name a few.
Tucked away on over 1.3 acres in the hills above Sunset Boulevard, the home evokes traditional appeal beckoning the days of old Hollywood glamour. Recently remodeled, the main house includes 2 master suites, 3 secondary bedrooms, 2 staff quarters, 7 bathrooms and 3 powder rooms, a large living area with high vaulted ceilings, and a media room with a wet bar and wine cellar.
Amidst a lush and private setting, texture and rich tones combine to create a warm and inviting master suite. High ceilings, large windows, and French doors provide ample light throughout while simultaneously showcasing the extensive grounds.
A superb home, the property maintains exceptional outdoor and indoor entertaining areas with abundant large terraces, beautiful landscaping, charming garden spaces, elegant loggias for alfresco dining, an outdoor kitchen, pool & spa, tennis court, koi pond, sports court, putting green, a 2-lane vintage inspired bowling alley, and game room.
A separate guesthouse offers VIP guests the utmost discretion with a private entrance from Heather Road, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a 2-car attached garage of its own.
For us, there’s no place like home quite like this Beverly Hills compound.
9555 Heather Road is offered at $25,500,000 or $100,000/month for lease by Joyce Rey & Stacy Gottula of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Beverly Hills South.
