The former house of famed director Alfred Hitchcock has hit the Bel Air, Los Angeles market. This sprawling one-story property was built by Carlton Burgess in 1942. The home quickly piqued the interest of Hitchcock himself, and he was the first owner of this iconic abode. It became known as Hitchcock’s secluded sanctuary, and the legacy of the estate continues to live on. A stunning example of traditional 1940s architecture, this Holmby Hills gem has a breathtaking interior.
Located in Bel Air, 10957 Bellagio Road is listed by Ron De Salvo at Compass.
Although the home underwent an extensive reservation in 1983, countless original details were carefully preserved. The estate is still recognizable from old photos of Hitchcock enjoying his prized property. The home covers 7,258 square feet and includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The appliances and utilities have been updated to a modern luxury standard, yet the distinct character of the home remains.
A classic fountained entrance leads to a traditional foyer. The entry space opens up to a sizeable living room with vaulted ceilings. With a showstopping fireplace and countless intricate details, the main living space oozes vintage charm. The warmth of the living room extends from wall to wall, creating an environment that balances luxury and livability.
The formal dining room has been designed for hosting stylish intimate gatherings. Carefully proportioned and thoughtfully planned, each detail has been chosen for optimal comfort. The recessed ceiling with crown molding acts as a stunning focal point in this refined space.
The kitchen is a unique blend of vintage and modern. A true chef’s kitchen, the appliances are suitable for contemporary cooking. Blue Brazilian granite covers the center island and sets the tone for the delightfully retro color scheme. The hand-painted tiles also radiate a classic charm.
The property includes two expansive bedroom suites. The master bedroom boasts an en suite bath with several dressing areas and generous tubs. A second suite is intended for guests, and it includes a luxurious bathroom that is appointed in white marble.
This Holmby Hills manor includes an equally impressive outdoor space. Ideal for taking advantage of the Los Angeles weather, this romantic area features a pool and sprawling patio. The exterior dining pavilion is reminiscent of the nearby Hotel Bel-Air. The entire lot size measures 0.64 acres, and it includes a motor court, gated entry, three covered parking spots, and several separate storage buildings.
In addition to the two main en suite bedrooms, the home has two extra rooms that could be converted into additional space for staff. The estate also features a hidden office with plumbing that can be turned into another guest suite. Listed for $8,250,000, Hitchcock’s famous residence is a study of preservation and timeless appeal.
