Want to be Hugh Hefner's Neighbor?
We were charmed by this house when we saw it on the market back in May, it’s now back on the market with a 2 million dollar price reduction, listed at $21 Million. The 1932 home was lovingly renovated in 2008 and is among the classiest homes we’ve seen in Holmby Hills. The next door neighbor is the Playboy Mansion which is almost 22,000 square feet and sits on 5 acres. This home seems more manageable at almost 10,000 square feet sitting on 1.5 acres.

View of the Day
Lucky for us, a great view is always exciting but not rare. Today we got both in this far from common picture perfect view of the Stone Canyon Reservoir. It is one of only two west facing properties on the Reservoir. The water was so inviting… it was fortunate that it’s winter, cold and illegal for us to have taken a dip or we would have been late for our next appointment!

The Roaring ’20s Art Deco-style house, reached by a cobblestone driveway, includes five fireplaces, six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 10,005 square feet of living space.”
