Helen Mirren, the highly acclaimed actress, and Taylor Hackford, the esteemed film director, have listed their Sunset Strip home for $17 Million. The Hollywood power couple originally listed their home in the Summer of 2021, when it went under contract, but the sale ultimately fell through in the Fall.
The home has been listed by Joyce Rey and Stephen Apelian of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.
Mirren and Hackford purchased the home in the 1980s. Built in 1911, the residence has only been called home by a total of 4 owners, exclusively Hollywood stars. The gated and secluded two-story single-family home is the perfect collaboration of luxury and privacy that any star could need.
Sitting on a little over 6.5 Acres, the estate encompasses 8 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, and 3 half bathrooms. A total of 6 fireplaces can be enjoyed from the living room, great room, library, kitchen, family room, and master bedroom. The detailed interiors, 9-foot high ceilings, and french doors are all complimented by the panoramic views of the Los Angeles city lights, which can be seen from almost every room.
Detached from the main home is a 3-bedroom guest house. Additionally, an office and an apartment sit above the 5-car garage. Stepping outside, residents may enjoy the views from the balcony or take a dip in the heated in ground pool. While this estate has little need for improvements, there is also room to place a tennis court in the yard.
Clearly fit for a star, the public record states the four previous owners as:
Dustin Farnum, the star of DeMille’s “Squaw Man”
Mark Hellinger, the writer/producer whose short story gave rise to Bogart/Cagney film “The Roaring Twenties”
Gail Patrick, the executive producer of the Perry Mason series and one of the first and most successful female producers in Hollywood
and finally, Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford.
Who will be next?
