Live like ol' blue eyes in this mid-century celebrity compound

It won’t fly you to the moon, and it’s not in New York, New York. But this sprawling LA mansion – once the home of music legend Frank Sinatra – has just been brought to the market for a whopping $21.5 million.

Known as ‘Byrdview’, the mid-century home has been one of Hollywood’s most iconic addresses since it was first built in 1949. Architect William Pereira designed the house for heiress Dora Hutchinson, who leased it to Sinatra in the ’50s and ’60s. Since then Byrdview’s distinctive modern style has made it a much sought after filming location; most recently it’s starred in Mad Men, Big Little Lies and Californication.


Perched on a private hilltop above the Chatsworth Preserve, the house enjoys sensational 360-degree views of the valley below. You can enjoy the vista by gazing out through floor to ceiling windows or, better yet, reclining on the pergola that runs beside a 50ft swimming pool.


Indoors there’s seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and high-ceilinged reception rooms that overlook the grounds. Décor is mid-century and minimalistic; think white walls, wooden floors, and open plan living spaces perfect for entertaining your Hollywood neighbours.


At the end of the night guests can retreat to the private guest house (complete with it’s own pool), and you can relax in your private spa suite. With a full gym, massage room, steam room and sauna, there’s no excuse for not staying in movie star shape.


But that’s not all. The property comes with approval for developing either additional homes, equestrian facilities, a helipad or a recording studio on the plot. As Sinatra said – the best is yet to come.
