Frank Lloyd’s former home in Topanga is listed

A compound built in the early 1930s by film director Frank Lloyd is on the market in Topanga at $4.3 million.

The 9-acre property, which has 360-degree views of the mountains, ocean and Santa Catalina Island, contains the original main house, carriage house and guesthouse. The main house features seven wood-burning fireplaces, a billiards room, a library and a walk-in refrigerator. Four bedrooms and five bathrooms lie in nearly 5,000 square feet of living space.

Lloyd, who died at 74 in 1960, was a founder and president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. In 1929, he was nominated for Oscars for three films — a silent movie, a part-talkie and a talking film. The silent, “The Divine Lady,” won. He later won again for “Mutiny on the Bounty” (1935).

The property was last on the market in 1955.
