Frank Sinatra’s legendary Chatsworth Hills home goes on sale for $ 21.5 million
If all the mansions of the rich and famous could speak, a mansion in the Chatsworth Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles would have some of the most interesting stories of all time. This house was rented by Frank Sinatra for about a decade during its heyday of the 1950s / 60s. Not only is Sinatra believed to have hosted many exclusive celebrity parties at the property’s guesthouse, it’s believed to be where President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe stayed together during their infamous affairs.
While those walls might have spoken at one point, the house has been extensively renovated since the Rat Pack days and is now on sale for $ 21.5 million.
Still, the house’s official list doesn’t exactly turn away from its famous showbiz past, making it clear to anyone familiar with the history of the property:
Iconic mid-century compound built by renowned architect William Pereira AIA. This Hollywood A-list property is fully restored and sits securely behind gates atop a promontory hill with a 2/3 mile driveway. The main residence overlooks the 1,325 acres of Chatsworth Preserve and the glorious mountain range showcasing 360 ° panoramic views. A fabulous 50 “swimming pool, a magnificent 2000 square foot pergola lounge, a gym / massage room separate, mature landscaping and rolling lawns that can easily accommodate hundreds of guests. The completely private guest house, with its incomparable history, has its own swimming pool and courtyard. Perfect as a home, or for filming income, or to admire as your own work of art. “
Completed in 1951, the then-futuristic architectural work was designed to catch the eye from the start, when it was built for Chase Bank heiress Dora Hutchinson.
The 8,161 square foot home, once known as Farralone, has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms and has been featured in numerous movies, music videos and TV shows over the years. But you can see it in the video below, from TheAgencyRE’s YouTube channel:
