This 1920s estate was the longtime home of Hollywood legend Rock Hudson, perched on a hilltop with sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean.
Rock Hudson was born on November 17, 1925, and was an American actor. One of the most famous movie stars of his time, he had a screen career spanning more than three decades.
Following his passing, director John Landis purchased the stucco and terra-cotta hacienda, which measures 9,600 square feet. Comes with five bedrooms, a cinema, a massage room, and a gym.
In 1997, Rock Hudson sold it to Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen for a reported $10 million. Allen customized the house and expanded the property to its current 3.2 acres, an extraordinary size in the exclusive Beverly Hills Post Office enclave.
The late tech titan, worth a reported $20 billion at the time of his death in 2018, added a nearly 10,000-square-foot recording studio called Neptune Valley to the estate, which also features a two-bedroom guest house, staff quarters, a detached office, and a security building.
Impressively, an all-glass funicular links the chic pool area with a tennis court below, a perk bound to impress even the most jaded party guest.
