Hollywood's Star Tour buses race around the windy streets of 90210 pointing out the homes of Brad Pitt, Gwen Stefani, or Quentin Tarantino. The glitz and glam of Hollywood looks a bit different now than the old Hollywood of yesteryear, where houses weren't massive structures behind gilded gates, but charming homes tucked between trees. If the older look of Hollywood royalty homes is more your style, you're in luck, because Shirley Temple's former home in Beverly Hills just hit the market at $8.64 million.
Temple transcends the notion of what it means to be a celebrity. Even for those who've never seen "Curly Top" or "Bright Eyes" know that her most seminal work isn't even a film at all, but the go-to mocktail that bears her name—a combination of ginger ale, grenadine, and maraschino cherries.
Known for throwing legendary parties as an adult, the home is a classic Tudor style with seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a fountain tucked into the greenery. While the home's history may be filled with star-studded soirees, today it's a quiet, beautifully vintage property with options either to entertain in the living room before the fireplace and on the patio behind the bar, or to curl up with a book in a study covered with built-in bookshelves.
The home is also centrally located in the area, with bars in West Hollywood just to the east (like the latest Vanderpump addition Tom Tom), fine dining to the south like Spago, and exclusive clubs such as SoHo House just north of the property.
While celebrity home flipping may be popular among LA's elite, scooping up a classic Hollywood home like this one is a great find for anyone looking to embrace the older fashions of Tinsel Town.
