What makes this adorable 4,200-square-feet single-family house such a interesing palace? For starters its history. To be more precisely, its Hollywood history, which begun way back in the thirties when Bela Lugosi, the “Dracula” star, bought it and made it his own for about a decade. Soon after Lugosi left, Martha O’Driscoll – the “House of Dracula” star – moved into the residence. After another decade, Frank Sinatra moved into the house with his new wife Ava Gardner.
The house itself at 2260 Maravilla Dr, Los Angeles, has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. High, exposed wood-beamed and drywall ceilings, hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows with slider doors in the living area are some of the interior details. There’s a contemporary kitchen with a mid-rise island that serves as a dining area, a family room and a separate dining place as well. There is a great room and a wet bar in the three-storey house as well.
Outside, you’ll find an infinity pool and lounging area with stunning views of the city below, and a parking garage as well.
The location of the house is also unique. Perching at a high area in the Outpost Estates, it is surrounded by many other celebrity houses like Salma Hayek’s, Charlize Theron’s and Ben Stiller’s. This piece of Hollywood history last sold in 2012 for $1.55 million, and now can be yours for $4,95 million.
