Frank Sinatra’s Famous Byrdview House Is  Back on the Market Asking $21.5 Million

Recently listed for a  whopping $21.5 million,

this mid-century Los Angeles compound is by no means your  ordinary luxury home.

Judy Garland held her wedding here.  Marilyn Monroe once lived in the  guest house.

Frank Sinatra himself called it home for over a decade, throwing roaring parties for all of his Rat Pack friends.

In recent years, the estate  — known as Byrdview —

served as filming set for popular productions like Mad Men, Dreamgirls, and Californication, adding a few extra notches on its popularity belt.

and each and every room pays  homage to the time when it was built.

The house was built in  1949 by legendary architect William Pereira

This is one of six homes Sinatra lived in throughout his life.

It was commissioned by Dora Hutchinson, heiress to the Chase Manhattan bank fortune, who then rented the property to Frank Sinatra.

and stand as testament to the timeless quality of the style, with uncluttered and sleek lines, gentle organic curves, and traditional material like wood. 

The living areas, kitchen,  and bedrooms all exemplify mid-century design

with a total of 7 bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 half baths.

The living space amounts to 8,161 square feet spread across the property’s existing three structures,

The property is being offered along with adjoining parcels that total close to 14 acres, a massive stretch of land the likes of which we don’t see very often in the Los Angeles area.

Believe it or not, that’s not even the biggest draw. 

In fact, the final tract map is approved for 11 extra home sites with separate entrance, situated below the main residence.

So not only does Byrdview have an illustrious past, but we’re looking forward to see what its future has in store.

This opens up a lot of possibilities for discerned buyers to further expand  this iconic property.
