Palatial Beverly Hills Flats Home Once Owned by Actor Edward G. Robinson Seeks $22M

If you’ve seen photos of long streets lined with palm trees in Los Angeles, odds are you’ve seen the Beverly Hills Flats area. Picturesque and full of history, Beverly Hills Flats has been home to many stars and remains a coveted place to buy in the sunny city. A newly listed mansion that once belonged to film star Edward G. Robinson just hit the market there. Its $21.95 million price tag certainly narrows the buyer pool, but all can enjoy this palatial eye candy.

While no one could need as much space as this home provides, this abode is not about necessity. It offers a guesthouse and main house for a total of 12,589-square-feet, eight bedrooms, and 10 bathrooms. With such a floorplan, it’s easy to imagine the swanky shindigs Robinson might have thrown here.

Built in 1930, the home has a timeless presence and level of luxury that can be appreciated as much now as back then. Life can be lived outdoors much of the time with French doors leading to a spectacular backyard. From the pool and waterslide to the spa and waterfalls, the estate can be a glamorous backdrop for splashy fun or daily relaxation. Then, lush greenery and tall trees frame spots for dining al fresco for all the privacy a celebrity buyer could want.

With Rodeo Drive just minutes away and Hollywood history, this listing set behind gates is the epitome of Beverly Hills. Mauricio Umansky and Jon Grauman of The Agency hold the listing.
