#TBT: a Beverly Hills home where Maria Montez wed Jean-Pierre Aumont in 1943

The Spanish-style home where sultry silver screen star Maria Montez wed actor Jean-Pierre Aumont has listed for sale in Beverly Hills at $5.295 million.

Built in 1928, the single-story home served as the personal residence to Montez, known as “The Queen of Technicolor,” during the 1940s. It was there, in 1943, that the Dominican-born actress and French actor exchanged vows, with Charles Boyer acting as best man and Jannine Crispine in the role of maid of honor, according to The Times.

After the death of Montez in 1951, the property was bequeathed to her relatives. In 1953, the home sold for $39,500. More recently, the home exchanged hands in June 2013 for $3.24 million.

The home, designed for indoor-outdoor entertaining, features updated interiors with beamed ceilings, plank hardwood flooring and vaulted living spaces. An open floor plan of nearly 3,100 square feet includes a formal living room with a fireplace, a dining room and a chef’s kitchen.

Outdoors, the quarter-acre grounds include a lap pool, a spa, a fire pit, a waterfall and an entertainer’s patio with an outdoor kitchen.

Iman Eshaghyan and Amir Jawaherian of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage hold the listing.
