A Holmby Hills estate whose residents have included some of old Hollywood’s leading women and men sold — with a price cut — after several years on the market.

The 1.1-acre gated property on Delfern Drive sold for $11 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. It was first listed for $16.95 million in 2015.

It was owned by a trust belonging to Margaret M. Black, records show. The buyer’s name was not known.

The two-story, Southern Colonial-style mansion has been home to Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow when they were together, as well as Audrey Hepburn and David Niven. Most recently, actress Eva Gabor lived in the house for almost 20 years until her death in 1995.

The compound was built in 1938 by architect Paul Williams. It comprises four structures and a total of 8,750 square feet. The main house is almost 7,000 square feet with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library, and a screening room. There is a pool, a pool house, greenhouse, and a tennis court.

Brokers regularly use connections to Hollywood celebrities from years past — and sometimes present — to boost interest in a property. [LAT]Gregory Cornfield
