Billie Holiday’s Spanish-Style Former Beverly Hills Home Seeks $3.5M
The owners of this Beverly Hills estate are hoping to say “I’ll Be Seeing You,” much like it’s famous former owner once did. Billie Holiday once called the traditional Spanish-style residence home and now it’s on the market asking $3.495 million.
In true California style, a courtyard welcomes guests into the home with vintage lighting and a fireplace. The circa-1926 home’s interiors are charming and warm with exposed beams and wood-burning fireplaces throughout. The main residence measures in at 3,016 square feet, and consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The primary bedroom stars a custom walk-in closet with lighting fixtures from New York’s original Waldorf Astoria, a remodeled bathroom with French shower tiles dating back to 1880, and an intricately-designed balcony.
On that note, the outdoor spaces are an instrumental part of the storied property. French doors lead from the dining room to an intimate patio, while the downstairs guest room opens to a heated al fresco dining area.
A detached two-story guest house awaits with a living area downstairs and a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and private patio upstairs. The property makes for a perfect retreat from Los Angeles’ spotlight. But, for those who are bigger fans of the East Coast, Holiday’s former Upper West Side brownstone is also on the market.
