Home of the Week: Beverly Hills estate boasts a full cast of Hollywood players


The Hollywood ties to this Beverly Hills estate stretch back decades, beginning in the 1930s when it was purchased by L.K. Sidney, an early CBS producer and former president of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, for $50,000. Decades later, the English traditional-style home served as a setting for “The Terminator” producer Gale Anne Hurd.

Set on about an acre of manicured grounds, the legendary two-story sits high up in the verdant setting, allowing for garden views in nearly every room. On a lower level, an entertainment area with a wine cellar opens directly to an outdoor sitting area.
