Cecil B. DeMille estate returns for $25M
The famed Cecil B. DeMille estate in Los Feliz is back and pricier than ever.
The property, on De Mille Drive, listed Monday for $24.95 million. It was most recently on the market in 2008, asking $23.95 million, but was delisted that same year.
Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland is marketing the 11,000-square-foot home on behalf of its current owners, Richard Grossman and Linda Lyons. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
DeMille, known as one of the founding fathers of American cinema, reportedly bought the property for just $28,000 in 1916 and later connected it with the house next door, which was formerly home to Charlie Chaplin. DeMille lived there for more than four decades.
The six-bedroom home sits on 2.1 elevated acres in gated Laughlin Park. The main Beaux Arts-style mansion was built in 1913. The property was recently renovated to include modern amenities. A new pool with arched fountains was installed.
DeMille is best known as one of the most prolific and revered filmmakers of the early to mid-twentieth century. He made about 70 feature films, including “Samson and Delilah” and “The Ten Commandments.”
