Cecil B DeMille Estate For Sale in Laughlin Park Los Feliz

DeMille was a famed Hollywood director who is remembered most for his epic and extravagant films; The King of Kings, Samson and Deliah, and The Ten Commandments.

He wrote in his autobiography “Since I came to California in 1913, I have never lived anywhere but Hollywood.” When the development of Laughlin Park began he purchased one of the first homes built there. (Charlie Chaplin purchased the other.)

They spent six years bringing this six-bedroom, ten-bath house back to its former glory. Ceilings were raised where possible and servant’s quarters were replaced with a bigger kitchen and library.

Original details like Doric columns in the living room were retained along with molded ceilings and an old school prohibition era style wine cellar.
