Marlene Dietrich’s Beverly Hills Home Sells for $23.5 Million

Though the house doesn’t belong to her officially, it is recognized at Marlene Dietrich’s Beverly Hills home because it was briefly occupied by the German-American actress and singer in late 1930s. Marlene_Dietrich_Beverly_Hills_Home_1The Beverly Hills home commonly known as Marlene Dietrich mansion has been sold for $23.5 million. Though the identity of the new owner is under wraps, it is known that it has been sold to an international buyer who happens to be a member of the Saudi royal family with homes all over the world.Marlene_Dietrich_Beverly_Hills_Home_2Nestled on 1.2-acre estate, behind a high hedge just a short hop from the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Spanish Revival-style house spans 8,000 square feet. While the main building includes four bedrooms and four along with four and half bathrooms, a detached guesthouse has another two bedrooms, one bathroom and a kitchen.

The interiors, that need some touch-up, do reflect Hollywood glamour with glitzy chandeliers and mirrored fireplace as well as a pair of mirrored dining room tables set.Marlene_Dietrich_Beverly_Hills_Home_3While Ms. Dietrich occupied the home, it was owned by her friend Countess Dorothy di Frasso, an heiress and society hostess. The countess had purchased the house in 1930s and soon hired Elsie de Wolfe, the vaunted grande dame of modern-day interior décor, who did the whole place over with an elegant, sumptuous and glamorous Art Deco vibe. In the 1940s, the party-throwing countess sold the estate and all its decadent furnishings to Spanish-born conductor and concert pianist José Iturbi, who lived there until his death in 1980. Last, the house exchanged owners in 2008 when it was sold for $7 million to garment industry executive Shawn Far.Marlene_Dietrich_Beverly_Hills_Home_5
