Michelle Pfeiffer’s Expansive Former Pacific Palisades Pad Hits the Market
That a celebrity of any variety once lived at your address no doubt makes for an excellent anecdote. But what if, at various points in the 20th century, not one but two big-screen legends called your abode home? Such is the case for a recently-listed Pacific Palisades property, less a house than it is a sweeping compound. Owned at one point by silent film star Will Rogers and then by the iconic Michelle Pfeiffer more recently, the spread shines as bright as the stars who have lived here. The current owners bought the home from Pfeiffer and Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley in 2001, and now it is listed for the first time in 20 years asking $19.999 million.
Tucked on a private cul-de-sac, the four-acre property used to hold stables but they have now been converted into an enormous gym. And this is just one of the five structures that dot the property. There’s also a main house, staff house, pool house, and newly-constructed guest building, bringing the total interior space to 9,758 square feet. The compound counts seven bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom across these buildings.
At once exceptionally private and conveniently located, the compound also stands a practice in understated elegance. Redesigned in recent years with the help of renowned architect Michael S. Smith, the main house and its fellow structures manage to compliment, and never outdo, their parklike surroundings.
