Bel-Air Mansion Home to Hollywood Legends

Image Source: Zillow French doors and archways lead the way to the calming waters of this Bel-Air, Calif., house's pool. Built in 1929 by architect Theodore J. Scott, this 13,000-square-foot, Spanish-style estate was once owned by such Old Hollywood luminaries as Marlene Dietrich and silent-film queen Colleen Moore.

This Spanish-style gated compound in Bel-Air is the ultimate example of elegance and luxury. It also epitomizes old Hollywood glamour — which is no surprise, considering its impressive history as a home to entertainment legends. Built in 1929 by famed architect Theodore J. Scott, the home’s first owner was silent screen star Colleen Moore. Later, Marlene Dietrich and Errol Flynn would also live in this spectacular mansion.

Upon entering the home, you immediately feel the sense of Hollywood — the grand staircase is like something straight out of a movie. At a whopping 13,000 square feet, the home has seven bedrooms and 12 baths. There’s also a bar, movie/game room and a gym with all the latest modern elements.

The impressive master suite has a fireplace and a balcony that provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds. You will be able to relax completely at the sparkling pool, which is surrounded by archways and French doors that lead back into the home.
