Whether it is sufficient to say that the house once belonged to one of the last surviving actors from Hollywood’s “golden age” – Kirk Douglas that the price of $17 million would be justified? What else can be, except the fact that this property close to all of the most popular spots in Beverly Hills, includes five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and numerous high-tech features.
Although the 7,000-square-foot residence was built in 1927, it has undergone significant renovations.
According to Curbed, some of the most interesting details in Douglas’ former home are high-performing glass walls throughout that “set the tone of elegance and function” (though there’s a lot of exposed brick, too); the custom design includes “a most remarkable chef’s kitchen,” and it has “the most incredible free standing full guest house.”
There is also a state-of-the-art solar system for the house and pool, electric skylights and additional high-tech features as well as a championship tennis court, a gym, full guesthouse, a fountain, covered patios and rose gardens.
Douglas, a retired American film and stage actor, film producer and author lived there in the 1940s. Hilton Hyland has the listing.
