Property Description

The newly repriced Paramour Estate provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a prestigious trophy property rich in Hollywood history with an intricate identity all its own, formed over decades dating back to the entertainment industry’s Golden Age. Crowning the top of the Moreno Highlands in Silver Lake, the mansion boasts unrivaled 360-degree vistas of DTLA, the Hollywood Sign, San Gabriel Mountains, and to the far west, the Pacific Ocean. Originally commissioned by an oil heiress, the 3.4-acre estate was designed by renowned architect Robert D. Farquhuar. Enter the walled compound through ornate iron gates to be welcomed by a dramatic driveway that ascends to a circular motor court adorned with a garden of roses. The stunning main house offers numerous vibrant guest suites, an expansive ballroom with 25-foot-high ceilings and adjoining bar, formal dining, opulent living with separate sunroom enclosed by soaring windows overlooking the landscape, and a lower-level kitchen/staff quarters. Wander the sweeping grounds enveloped by lush greenery, take a dip in the marble hand-tiled pool, dine al-fresco on one of the many patios, or host visitors in the multiple guest cottages. Prepared for its next chapter, this historic property is a rare Los Angeles jewel with the city’s most captivating views and multiple possibilities, previously having been used as residences and even a girls’ school.
