Photos: Screen Legend Marlene Dietrich's Gorgeous Westwood Mansion Hits The Market
It's Monday in Los Angeles and you know what that means—another celebrity mansion you probably can’t afford has hit the market.
The latest edition to L.A.’s elite real estate list is the painfully glamorous Westwood mansion that once belong to sensual German actress, Marlene Dietrich, who'd starred in The Blue Angel (1930) and, later in her career, the Orson Welles-directed Touch of Evil (1958). The star lived in the four-bedroom mansion during her heyday in the 1930s and we’re not surprised that this place is lush. Terra cotta tile and stained glass windows accent dramatic ceilings for an inescapable Spanish influence that screams, “I make a lot of money!”
The home was designed by L.A. architect L.G. Scherer and boasts 6,167 square feet which includes gardens, a pool, and a sophisticated central courtyard. But what’s a mansion without some serious superfluous add-ons? The home also includes six fireplaces (for those blisteringly frigid L.A. winters), a wine cellar, and a loggia which overlooks the central courtyard. And since most wealthy people love to golf, potential tenants will be pleased to know that the Los Angeles Country Club sits just west of the home, separated by a wall of trees. All of this could be yours for a cool $6.5 million.
