Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s former Beverly Hills Home is back on the market, after a brief two-year hiatus. For the first time in more than two decades, the home was listed in 2012 for $13 million. Hard Rock Cafe founder Peter Morton purchased the house for $9.8 million, and announced plans to demolish and redevelop the house, it sparked public outcry which helped to prevent that from happening, and Morton instead flipped the property in 2014 for $14.5 million. The buyer, a “mysterious corporate entity,” appears to have hung onto the home until now, and is now selling the 1958 French Regency-style estate for $30 million.
Perched on a coveted promontory in a quiet cul-de-sac, this 1.18-acre French Regency presents a unique opportunity to customize ‘a life above it all’ within the exclusive enclave of Trousdale Estates. This Beverly Hills residence enjoys sweeping city-to-ocean views of the world below.
Set far back behind gates and mature trees, a long driveway and four-car motor court lead to the newly renovated 5,400-square-foot mid-century residence and attached guesthouse by Rex Lotery. Maintaining spectacular bones for adding one’s personal touches, spacious interiors are magnified by high ceilings, warm hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in abundant natural light. Features such as a luxurious master suite, skylights, fireplaces and coffered ceilings are complemented by contemporary updates such as stainless steel kitchen appliances, fresh paint, new flooring, an added laundry room, and upgraded electrical.
Ample outdoor lounging and entertaining space is offered throughout a large patio featuring a fireplace, resurfaced pool and spa, and lush lawns, set against breathtaking panoramic vistas.
Only minutes from the best shopping, dining and entertainment of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, 1174 N. Hillcrest Road presents an unrivaled opportunity to tailor and personalize a magnificent view estate.
