This remarkable compound sits at the top of a winding drive on approx. 6.5 acres of gorgeous landscaping, mature trees, and Hollywood sophistication.
The sprawling compound of Director Taylor Hackford and Actor Helen Mirren was listed for $18,500,000 or $45,000 per month lease.
Located at 2003 La Brea Terrace in Los Angeles, the approximately 10,200-square-foot luxury residence has nine bedrooms, five of which are in the main house and three in the guest cottage, and 10 bathrooms.
Since its construction in 1911, the property has had only four owners.
The first was Dustin Farnum, often known as Hollywood’s first movie star, who starred in Cecil B. DeMille’s “Squaw Man,” which was the first feature film shot in Hollywood. Next was journalist, columnist, and film producer Mark Hellinger, whose short story gave rise to “The Roaring Twenties,” starring Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney. After Farnum came Gail Patrick who had a very successful acting career and was executive producer of the “Perry Mason” series. Patrick was one of the first and most successful female producers in Hollywood. The fourth and current owners, Director Taylor Hackford and Actor Helen Mirren complete the illustrious line of Hollywood dignitaries who have owned this fabulous residence.
On approximately 6.5 acres, the spacious and elegant main residence has a swimming pool and wide terrace for lounging, dining and entertaining. Separate from the main home, there is a three bedroom guest house and a five-car garage with an office and loft-style apartment above.
