The Tudor-style home in Beverly Hills, listed at $56 million, was built in 1934 for actors Fredric March and Florence Eldridge.
Vanderbilt scion Shirley Burden and business magnate Wallace Annenberg were both former owners of the estate, which features a tennis court, a tennis pavilion, a pool and a guest house on more than an acre.

Past owners of this grand Tudor in Beverly Hills read like a “who’s who” of stars and moguls, beginning with actors Fredric March and Florence Eldridge, for whom the 1930s home was originally built.
The cachet continued through the decades when the acre-plus estate was owned by Vanderbilt scion Shirley Burden and, later, business titan Walter Annenberg. During the early 2000s, it was home to former “it” couple Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, who added a private screening room to the 12,000-square-foot house.
