This $40 million Beverly Hills pad has ties to old school Tinseltown.
The home, owned by Harry Warner of Warner Brothers in the 1940s, has been listed by its current owner Daphna Edwards Ziman, who purchased it with her husband Richard Ziman, the real estate investor, in 1996, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The listing agents are Coldwell Banker’s Joyce Rey and Jade Mills and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.
The Zimans renovated the seven-bedroom house, which sits on 1.1 acres, to evoke a sense of Old Hollywood, preserving its original leaded-glass windows, hard-carved oak and classic kitchen tiles. There are velvet curtains in the movie screening room and photos of vintage stars like Marlene Dietrich and Humphrey Bogart.
The house also features a film editing room — Ziman is the president of TV network Cinémoi — and a one-bedroom guesthouse with an ice cream soda bar. Outside, there is a swimming pool, tennis pool and five waterfalls. [WSJ] — Cathaleen Chen
