Frank Sinatra's former Hollywood home is a sun-drenched, design lover's utopia, currently listed for $21.5 million. Alongside its ties to Frank Sinatra, the gallery-like sanctuary is synonymous with William Pereira – an esteemed figure amid the twentieth-century architectural design world.
With an iconic past – yet a thoroughly contemporary scheme – amid one of America's most sought-after postcodes, it is unsurprising that the listing is currently the most expensive listing in the San Fernando Valley – and one of the world's best homes.
The home in Los Angeles's Byrdview Estate is one of the four homes designed by Pereira, whose firm, Pereira & Luckman Architects, is best known for designing Los Angeles International Airport. The home similarly showcases his legendary mastery through its audacious use of glass and attention to detail.
Singer and actor Frank Sinatra – who is best known for his roles in Guys and Dolls, Ocean's 11, and From Here to Eternity – rented the estate from socialite Dora Hutchinson throughout the 1950s for around a decade.
Following Frank's time in the property, the home has starred in several productions, including Mad Men and films Californication and Dreamgirls.
However, it is easy to see the estate's appeal – boasting 8,161 square feet of interior design tips to mirror throughout your interiors. The open-plan living space oozes an artistic aesthetic – from its striking sculpture collection to the fearless paintings that interrupt the minimalist scheme.
Meanwhile, the dining space has reset the bar for entertainment spaces through its creative tablescape and curated art selection that is fueling our modern dining room ideas.
Beyond its seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and light-filled kitchen space, the home offers a range of luxury facilities that crown the home as one of the most exciting in the city.
Notable interior assets include a recording studio and a gym and massage room, while outside boasts a vineyard, swimming pool, helipad, and a 2000 square foot pergola lounge area, naturally.
Plus, much like the rest of the home, the garden showcases the sublime mountain range surrounding the San Fernando Valley. We've just discovered the catalyst to our luxury garden ideas for the future.
The home, at 9361 Farralone Ave, Chatsworth, California, 91311, is currently listed with Barrie Livingstone of Sotheby's International Realty, Malibu Brokerage.
