A lavish California compound with a star-studded history is looking for a new owner.
This property in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles not only counts iconic film director Steven Spielberg among its previous occupants, but also “Blue Velvet” crooner Bobby Vinton. And guess what – there’s more.
This four bedroom estate on a corner lot is tucked into a half acre of scenic greenery in the hilly Palisades Riviera area. The address, known as “Wildwood,” was also formerly home to Douglas Fairbanks Jr., the silent movie star who originated the roles of “Zorro” and “Robin Hood,” according to material provided to The Post by The Agency, whose Rawley Valverde, Adam Rosenfeld and Jon Grauman are quoted at $6.39 million.
Inside, the four-story, 3,992-square-foot home is defined by recently refinished wood cladding and parquet and oak floors. Two rooms have floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces, giving the feeling of being in a ski lodge, while a view outside immediately takes you from the slopes to the jungles reminiscent of Spielberg’s own “Jurassic Park.” A local Pasadena artist created the tiled backsplash in the kitchen, which also features Silestone countertops and is open to the living and dining areas.
The primary suite has cathedral ceilings, one of which has two ski lodge style fireplaces and a walk-in closet. Much of the home is wrapped in decks, including one of this primary suite. Two of the bathrooms pictured have double sinks and one has a freestanding bath.
In case the landscaped wilderness doesn’t serve as enough privacy, the lot is also surrounded by mature trees and six-foot-tall fencing – but the ocean is still visible over the treetops. The grounds also feature curved stone retaining walls, three fountains, a walkway, flagstone walkways, a workshop, and “stone paths and patios with meandering French drains,” the listing says. There is also a two-car garage, Ring entry cameras and an indoor-outdoor sound system.
Hiking trails are within walking distance and there is ample street parking, the list adds to the area.
