Top Dollar Silver Lake Home!

Throughout the ages, Cecil B. DeMille, WC Fields, Natalie Portman, and Kristen Stewart have all called Laughlin Park home. The gated community between Los Feliz Boulevard and Franklin Avenue is also where you’ll find the oldest house in Los Feliz. There are only about 60 properties in the ‘hood.

The Bienstock Group recently sold the house at 2019 De Mille Drive for 1,800,000.  The house is probably on the smallest lot in Laughlin Park and the yard is shaped like a slice of pizza.  The vertical house is  2573 and it sits  on a 3468 square foot lot.  There is no room for a pool.  The house had multiple offers and it sold to a Hollywood celeb.

Earlier this year, in June 2017, the estate just across the street at 2000 De Mille Drive,  the one and only historic Cecil B. DeMille Estate sold for 24,500,000.  Set on 2.1 elevated acres this multi-structure compound is a spectacular Beaux Arts Style mansion built in 1913, a beautiful pool house and a studio house with a separate entrance. A six-year renovation/restoration sensitive to original details yet including modern amenities  created a high-quality sophisticated property rarely seen. Gated and walled with incredible gardens, paths and sitting areas, a newer classic old Hollywood style pool with arched fountains, and surrounded by rolling lawns, specimen trees, rose gardens and dramatic views from the Observatory to Ocean sunsets, this property is one of a kind.  The house is 11,000 on a 87,120 square foot lot.  It has 6 beds and 10 baths.  

In May 2017, 2061 De Mille Drive sold for 9,700,000.  The house has 5 beds and 11 baths, it is 7935 square feet on a lot that’s 18,304 square feet.  It was a lavish remodel by Xorin Balbes of Temple Home.

As real estate agents, the Bienstock Group prides itself on selling homes for top top dollar.  The house at 2019 De Mille, on a pizza slice shaped lot of only 3468 square feet, and in pretty much original condition, sold for top top dollar at 1,800,000.  The buyer is fortunate to own a property for that price in such a historic, prestigious, centrally located enclave right in the center of the city, and flanked by exquisite properties worth twenty times the value of her purchase.  Our favorite sales at The Bienstock Group are win-win for all parties! Mission accomplished!
