Late Producer Steven Bochco’s Paul Williams-Designed L.A. Estate Asks $35M

The late legendary TV writer and producer Steven Bochco called this prestigious Pacific Palisades estate home for many seasons, lasting from 1997 until his death in 2018. Bochco is the 10-time Emmy award winner behind Hill Street Blues and L.A. Law, among others. Earning quite a net worth over his lifetime, his stylish home designed by beloved architect Paul Williams is now listed for $35 million by The Estate of Steven Bochco.

Tucked behind gates, a stone wall, and lush landscaping, the private refuge has architectural appeal and ample entertainment industry allure. Bochco isn’t the only one in show biz who retreated back to this home. Sylvester Stallone, the movie star best known for starring as Rocky Balboa in the Rocky series, once owned the property.

Williams designed this estate in 1937. The architect’s work in Southern California, including residences such as Ronald Reagan’s former home, the late Barron Hilton’s estate, and fashion designer Max Azria’s Holmby Hills property, is highly sought-after by design-loving buyers. And, this would make an impressive addition to any real estate portfolio.

Providing 10,853-square-feet living space, the newly renovated spread includes a main house, pool cabana, guest house, and tennis court. Gracious rooms filled with sunlight exude effortless sophistication, with beauty spread evenly from the huge gourmet kitchen to the primary suite with vaulted ceilings. The property offers seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms in total.

In L.A., it’s not uncommon to happen upon a celebrity, producer, or even a home by a famous architect. What is uncommon, according to the Los Angeles Times, is a home in the Pacific Palisades on more than an acre of land. Set on 1.4 acres, The Steven Bochco Estate is listed with Aaron Kirman, Morgan Trent, and Dalton Gomez of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass.
