Built in 1940, this Coldwater Canyon estate has a notable celebrity past, purchased in the 1950s by Hollywood veteran Jack Palance, who won the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for “City Slickers” (1991). Palance later sold it to highly regarded film and TV director Stuart Rosenberg (“Cool Hand Luke,” “The Defenders,” “The Untouchables,” “Naked City,” “The Twilight Zone.”)


Located just minutes above the Beverly Hills Hotel, the house was designed by noted Los Angeles architect Paul Revere Williams, AIA, who also created the homes of many celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Lon Chaney, and Barbara Stanwyck. Williams also designed many public and private buildings. Working with Williams on the construction of the original house was well-known builder Herbert Riesenberg of Los Angeles.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom estate is listed with Todd Marks in our Beverly Hills office for $3,895,000.


Blending historical details with a modern lifestyle

Carefully incorporating its significant historic details, while orchestrating a stunning contemporary update with attention to modern and technological conveniences, this home is the perfect blend of old and new.

With a nod to Paul Revere Williams, “architect to the stars,” this original estate’s exquisite moldings and remarkable two-story entry greet you upon arrival and open up to a designer kitchen and family room.


The expansive floor plan is designed for entertaining on either an intimate or grand scale. On the entry level you will find formal living and dining rooms which are further complemented with guest and staff suites.


The second story boasts a master suite with a spa-like Carrara bath and dual walk-in closets with views of the park-like grounds, plus two additional family bedrooms.

Outdoors, amenities include a pool, spa, and fire pit, a two-car garage, and ample parking for 20 vehicles in the dual-entranced motor court.
