This is The Listings, a monthly rundown (with pictures!) of seven of the most architecturally significant properties currently for sale in Los Angeles.
Chartwell Estate just went on the market after Jerrold “Jerry” Perenchio, owner of Univision, passed away. The sprawling estate, with its 75-foot swimming pool and 40-car garage, was home to Ronald and Nancy Reagan and the backdrop for The Beverly Hillbillies. Better go look for some Texas Tea.
Listing: Jeff Hyland, Drew Fenton and Gary Gold, Hilton and Hyland
Ready to empty nest, or just go full-blown Royal Tenenbaum? Consider the 5,670-square-foot flat at the top of the Montage Hotel in downtown Beverly Hills. The four bedroom condo has its own elevator entrance and high ceilings. And you have 24-7 five-star concierge services.
Listing: Brett Lawyer, Hilton and Hyland
9425 Sunset Blvd.
With a French country exterior and a contemporary interior, this pad off of Sunset Blvd has a little of everything: tennis courts, a movie theater, a big pool and a detached guest house. It’s for anyone who thinks those modish boxes dotting every neighborhood will soon look very dated.
Listing: Mauricio Umansky, The Agency
17455 Tramonto Drive
Modern home enthusiasts looking for something with character should check out the home architects Mark Cigolle and Kim Coleman designed for themselves. Their design uses glass, concrete and steel to give the residents the feeling of always being outside. And with views of the Pacific and the hills, you could see why.

868 Birchwood Drive
Elegant actress Marlene Dietrich used to call this Spanish-style hacienda home back in the ‘30s. It’s located on a quiet street and has plenty of al fresco nooks and gardens for enjoying time outside. The archways, wine cellar and stained glass set this historic property apart from the others.
