Once again, that time of year has returned where streets are closing in preparation for the 90th Academy Awards Ceremony and driving into Hollywood on Awards Night would be the textbook definition of a nightmare. In the spirit of Oscars road closure season, Hilton & Hyland would like to spotlight a few estates that have strong ties to the big screen.
The Johnny Carson Estate
Formerly home to the Tonight Show’s late host, Johnny Carson, this pristine compound expands over four acres of park like grounds, gardens and pathways with private access to the gorgeous beach below. The secluded modern masterpiece by renowned architect Edward R. Niles rises above the majestic bluffs of Point Dume, overlooking the dazzling Pacific Ocean.
Previously owned by the late Hollywood super-agent, Ed Limato, the recently remodeled estate offers 11 bedrooms, over 22,000-square-feet between the main and three-bedroom guesthouse, and an incredible collection of furnishings and art throughout. Sitting on 1.6 acres in Coldwater Canyon, the grand estate is marked by European charm and iconic Hollywood glamour opening on the market for $45,000,000.
The Grey Estate
Emerging from one of the most prestigious streets in Holmby Hills, the Grey Estate, previously home to the late Paramount Chief Brad Grey, can be found tucked away on Carolwood Drive. Design by Atelier AM reflects proportioned spaces rendered in sensuous materials, making the $77.5 million private residence unparalleled in luxury.
