Introducing "The Cedars" — a monument to Old Hollywood glamour and artistic splendor, meticulously restored to its original magnificence by the renowned fashion designer Sue Wong. This palatial estate, conceived in the roaring 1920s by visionary French director Maurice Tourneur, reflects an era of opulent detail and grandeur, inspired by the Duke of Alba's villa in Spain. This three-house compound encompasses 10 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms in nearly 13,000 ft.² of living space on close to ¾ of an acre. Nestled on the historic hills of Los Feliz, The Cedars stands as a testament to Hollywood's golden age, boasting a commanding view of Los Angeles, from the city to the ocean. The estate is named after the once-abundant cedar trees that adorned the landscape, adding to its storied and mystical ambiance. As you step through the historical threshold, you are transported back in time to a period when Hollywood was as much about the art of storytelling as it was about the celebrities it celebrated. The home’s dazzling array of kaleidoscopic opulence and intricate period details serves as an artistic sensory overload—each room tells a story, each corner holds a whisper of the past. The Cedars has been a sanctuary for Hollywood royalty and musical legends, hosting an array of illustrious names including Norma Talmadge, Howard Hughes, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, and Johnny Depp, to name a few. The walls of this iconic estate are steeped in the creative energies of these legends, from the iconic "Purple Haze" composed by Hendrix within its walls, to the gatherings of stars like Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. Sue Wong, the current custodian of The Cedars, undertook a painstaking three-year restoration, ensuring that no detail was overlooked. Collaborating with a team of European artisans and craftspeople, Wong led the revival of the estate’s ornate gilded bas-relief ceilings, frescoed archways, and period ironwork. Her commitment extended to a global search for antiques that resonate with the estate’s majestic architecture, bringing together elements from Baroque, Empire, French Art Deco, Moroccan, and Andalusian styles. Today, The Cedars is not just a home, but a living, breathing piece of art—each of the 26 rooms is meticulously designed to reflect the elegance and grand style of its origins. It stands as a stunning homage to the glamour and creative spirit of early twentieth-century Hollywood, offering an unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of history and artistry. This estate is a rare jewel in Los Angeles, perfect for those who appreciate the beauty of history, the allure of Hollywood, and the art of exquisite restoration. Experience the magic and legacy of The Cedars, where every room tells a story, and every view beckons a tale of yesteryear.
