The Beverly House comes with a lot of history, especially related to Hollywood and the glamorous lifestyle. The 19-bedroom, 29-bathroom house that rests on 3.5 acres was built in 1927 by Gordon Kaufmann. The house belonged to newspaper influencer, William Randolph Hearst and the actress Marion Davies, known as “The Queen of the Screen”. Regarded as a symbol of Hollywood’s Golden Era, the massive mansion is best characterized by long colonnades, wide balconies, arched floor-to-ceiling windows and cavernous interiors.
In addition, the beautiful residence also features a two-story library, an ultra-modern spa, a billiards rooms with herringbone parquet floor, a highly ornamented ceiling seemingly identical to the one in the Hearst Castle, among many other luxurious amenities.
The Beverly house is not only famous due to Hearst and Davies, as it has actually been featured in plenty of prominent films such as The Godfather (1972) and The Bodyguard (1992). But perhaps one occasion that made it even more celebrated was the fact that it was the destination for the honeymoon for Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy, and it even became JFK’s West Coast presidential election headquarters.
