Beverly Hills House Once Owned by Samuel Goldwyn Is Listing for $39 Million
The Georgian mansion, which housed two generations of the Hollywood family, was built in 1934 and includes a screening room
Movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn remortgaged the family’s Beverly Hills house many times to get cash for his projects. Now that house is listing for $39 million.
The Georgian mansion was built in 1934 for Mr. Goldwyn Sr., the movie producer who founded a company that later became part of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film studio. The house was also the home of son Samuel Goldwyn Jr., also a movie producer, who was known for independent movies like “Mystic Pizza.” Mr. Goldwyn Jr. died in January at age 88, and the home is listed with Joyce Rey and Stacy Gottula of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
Measuring about 11,000 square feet, the house is located on nearly 2 acres on a cul-de-sac behind the Beverly Hills Hotel, said Ms. Rey, who added: “It’s very rare to get 2 acres of land in Beverly Hills.” The house has six bedrooms and five bathrooms, plus a guest apartment over the garage. It has a spiral staircase at the entrance, said Ms. Rey. There is also a screening room with 35-millimeter film projection and a formal dining room with French doors leading out to a brick patio. Outside, there is a pool and pool house with a kitchenette. There is also a sunken lighted tennis court and a double motor court.
While the house has been “beautifully maintained,” Ms. Rey said, new owners would likely do some renovation to customize it.
The third generation of the family is also involved in Hollywood: Mr. Goldwyn Jr.’s son Tony is an actor who plays the U.S. President on ABC’s “Scandal,” his son John is a movie producer and his son Peter is an executive at Samuel Goldwyn Films.
