Beverly Hills Estate of 20th Century Fox Founder Hits the Market

Zanuck house

The former Beverly Hills estate of Movie Mogul Darryl F. Zanuck and silent screen star Virginia Fox Zanuck has just hit the market. The home was owned by the Zanuck’s from the 1920’s into the early 1940’s, during Hollywood’s Golden Age. It was during ownership of the estate that Darryl Zanuck formed Twentieth Century Fox in 1935.The property brims with the classic charm of that time and now benefits from a multi-year rebuild and restoration featuring updated modern amenities. The estate’s original details have been beautifully enhanced by the addition of contemporary, yet elegant, touches like countless French doors that allow for a more sought after indoor-outdoor flow. Outside, the walled and gated grounds are lushly planted with specimen trees and tall hedges that allow for privacy and multiple areas for entertaining. This stunning property is ready for its “close-up” and next Hollywood chapter…
