Beverly Hills isn't uniformly wealthy but it is the area most associated with wealth. World famous Rodeo Drive has help cemented its place as a luxury destination. The area boasts some of the largest homes in the Los Angeles area and as been home to movie stars since Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford built Pickfair in 1919.

Today's home is in the gated Beverly Park area, one of the very best parts of Beverly Hills, and is located on nearly two acres.
