Frank Sinatra’s Iconic Former LA Home Dubbed Byrdview Wants $21.5M
In the LA neighborhood of Chatsworth, a property formerly home to Frank Sinatra just listed. But this isn’t just any storied celebrity home. Known as Byrdview, the iconic midcentury modern was designed by Pereira Luckman AIA and built in 1951. It’s available to buy for the first time in 25 years and architecture lovers will surely swoon, but it does have the steep price tag of $21.5 million. Well, ‘That’s Life,’ right?
The crooner lived here in the 1950s and 1960s when it was brand new, but it still dazzles today. The iconic main residence features a 50-foot pool, a 2,000-square-foot pergola lounge, and a massage/sauna/steam room. Wellness is a clear focus, especially since the home sits blissfully above the Chatsworth Nature Preserve and has 360-degree peaceful views.
Just as perfect for playing host, it also has a guesthouse for a total of 8,161 square feet of living space, seven bedrooms, and nine baths. But, the 14-acre property offers endless additional possibilities for someone who wants to do things their own way. Firstly, it is ideal for filming, and has already been a sultry backdrop on projects like Mad Men and Dreamgirls.
Thinking a bit bigger, the property is also approved for the development of 10 individual home sites. These would not be in view of the main home and could have a separate entrance. The grounds could alternatively hold anything from equestrian facilities to an art studio to a vineyard to create the ultimate LA compound.
Fully restored, legendary Byrdview awaits with a unique history and promising future. Craig Knizek of The Agency and Barrie Livingstone of Sotheby’s International Realty share the listing.
