Home of the Week: A Beverly Crest haunt with a Hollywood past

Among the classic estates that dot the posh Beverly Crest neighborhood, one home that’s nearly a century old harks back to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Once owned by film star Errol Flynn, the two-story haunt was rebuilt a decade ago with updated, elegant living spaces and modern amenities. In the private backyard, vintage lampposts and outdoor heaters surround a hedge-lined space with a saltwater pool and spa.
