Inside The Audrey Hepburn Mansion, Now For Sale In LA
The previous abode of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star in celebrity neighbourhood Holmby Hills, Los Angeles just hit the market – and it is currently on sale for an asking price of US $14 million dollars. The Hepburn mansion, designed by architect-of-the-stars Paul Williams in 1938, was also once shared by classic superstars Eva Gabor, Mia Farrow, and David Niven. Hepburn was said to occupy the house in the ‘60s, coinciding with her filming of her 1964 musical, My Fair Lady.
Accessible thru a gated, hilly entrance, the compound once owned by the Hollywood star has a tennis court, a sizeable swimming pool, and a series of wide lawns and floral terraces. Georgian Colonial in style, the 7,000-square-foot home has a 700 sq ft guest house, and a 1,000 sq ft office space for staff. Giving a very hospitable ambiance and a welcoming feel, the six-bedroom property is officially named the Eva Gabor estate.
But exactly what does Audrey Hepburn’s house look like?

GEORGIAN COLONIAL INTERIORS
The interior design style of the Hepburn mansion is Georgian Colonial – which makes the antiquities garnishing the home typically natural. Rustic and cottage-style, make sure to expect nothing but 18th Century opulence and pure cozy elegance upon stepping into Audrey’s previous home. Gleaming pieces of decor made from walnut and maple woods blend in the customary color of palette of pale peaches and brown taupes.
The ornate mix of Queen Anne and Sheraton furniture styles, on the other hand, channels the sophistication the fashion and film icon has. As a key characteristic of Georgian Colonial décor, traditional quilts and carpets with textures made from extravagant fabrics are also dominant inside. Soft blues, as reflected from the outside, also refine the antique-finish of the estate. The mansion has lofty fixed glass windows to let sunlight in, with the crystalline panes making the rich vegetation of the lawns vividly visible.
Aside from the two staff bedrooms, there are four bedrooms on the second floor including the master suite. Further highlights of the Hepburn manor comprise of the luxe patios, and the alluring landscaped gardens.
Glam, trad, and symmetry make up Hepburn’s home, and this make up welcomes every visitor interested in buying the house. It exudes an air of high sophistication and refinement – perfectly illustrating the icon who once lived within.
The estate’s location, Holmby Hills, is a Hollywood-filled neighborhood in California – a place the renowned Walt Disney also once lived. The area has also been resided in by Frank Sinatra, Sidney Sheldon, Neil Diamond, and Michael Jackson.
