Former Home of Eldest Warner Brother Selling for $5.575 Million
This Georgian Colonial was built for Harry Warner, the oldest of the Warner Brothers, in 1924. Designed by A. Burnside Sturges, the studio executive only spent a short time in the stately Hancock Park home, but he had a good reason for moving. After two years there, Warner flipped the house to fund the studio’s first foray into “talkies” with a film called The Jazz Singer.
The historic 5,555-square-foot home maintained its vintage exterior through multiple owners. The Juliet balcony accompanies the slender pillars with corinthian molding—both complemented by the red brick facade. Warner’s Hancock Estate is comprised of seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. The master suite has its own fireplace and sitting area. The Georgian Colonial also features a formal dining room and lounge.
One of the noteworthy aspects of the home is the original screening room with maple-paneled walls and a movie projection booth. The property, more than a half-acre plot, is home to recreational amenities like a tennis court and luxurious pool with an accompanying guesthouse. The Los Angeles-area home is currently listed at $5.575 million. If interested, you can find more information here. See more of it below.
