Late Hotelier Barron Hilton’s Estate Designed by Paul R. Williams Seeks $75M
The name Hilton has permeated so many parts of business and pop culture it’s difficult to keep track. Whether people are discussing Hilton & Hyland real estate, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, or, of course, Hilton hotels. Giving a peek into the family’s wealth and legacy, a Holmby Hills estate long owned by the late hotelier Barron Hilton has hit the market asking $75 million. Known as the Jay Paley House, it is iconic.
Designed by Paul R. Williams, the 15,000-square-foot English Georgian-style manse is considered one of the best works of the famous architect’s career. In 1936, it was created for Jay Paley, a founder of the Congress Cigar Company. It has been in the Hilton family now for over 50 years, according to what listing agent Rick Hilton told Mansion Global.
Unsurprisingly, the property is all about living large. The ceilings are high, the rooms are vast, and the amenities are endless. On the grounds, there’s a striking pool, tennis court, formal gardens, and fountains. Of course, for Barron to have hosted his collection of famous relatives, including granddaughter Paris Hilton, there are vast dining areas inside and out. Not to mention, 13 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms.
The late owner’s son, Rick Hilton, and grandson, Barron N. Hilton, are representing the listing at Hilton & Hyland. Rick lived at the home for years with his parents and his 7 siblings, making it all the more personal.
