Ronald Reagan’s Former LA Home Is For Sale Again Asking $6.75M
Two years after selling for $6.45 million, Ronald Reagan’s former home has returned to the market. Known as the Shuwarger House, the late former president’s old California abode could more appropriately be named his “Other White House.” While not as grand as the iconic DC residence where each president has lived, the competition is hardly fair. Subtle yet suitably stately, this LA home with its façade of white brick is now asking $6.75 million.
Amongst the most elegant of iconic architect Paul Williams’s designs, Shuwarger house is available for only the second time in 64 years to purchase. Williams, alternately known as “the architect to the stars”, created homes for the likes of Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra. As such, his designs have star-worthy grandeur—high ceilings, crown moldings, and French doors infuse elegance into the casual California environment. Located in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, this presidential home is steeped in Hollywood allure.
The 6,153-square-foot has even graced the screen. Its starring moment came on the acclaimed FX series Feud, where it stood in for the Brentwood mansion of Joan Crawford. Built in 1938, the traditional dwelling has all the glamorous features that LA buyers love: A pool, open spaces for entertaining, and tons of potential. With some fresh, bright decor, this spot can offer the best of old and new.
