A luxurious Santa Monica vacation home that once belonged to Hollywood royalty is up for sale for the first time in 40 years. Built in 1929, the home was previously owned by Cary Grant and Western star Randolph Scott. Over the years, the spiffy digs were frequented by stars like Grace Kelly, Howard Hughes, Sharon Tate and George Gershwin. Buyers tempted to follow in those fancy footsteps can do so for $11.995 million.
So what's it like to kick up your heels in the same space as some of the biggest entertainers in history? As a former haven for the rich and famous, it's no surprise that the expansive 11,503 square-foot beachfront property is nothing short of impressive. An elegant courtyard with a fountain offers visitors a preview of the home's upscale interior. Inside the 5,530 square-foot sits a foyer and a circular staircase which winds its way up to the second level. The upstairs area houses a formal living room adorned with hardwood floors, a fireplace and antique windows, as well as a dining area and a sunroom with a backyard garden view.
The home also has five bedrooms (including the master suite) on the second floor that each offer stunning views of the Santa Monica Pier. On the first floor sits a wine cellar, a powder room, a butler's pantry and a kitchen complete with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. In the backyard are all the necessities for entertaining, including a heated pool, patios, a pickleball court and a raised observation deck. Other standout amenities include a four-car garage and beach access.
