The house was built near the beginning of the Golden Age of Hollywood, in 1933. Once the long-time home of classic film star David Niven, the property has only had two owners since his death.
Looking through photos of the grounds and the home’s interior rooms, it isn’t hard to mentally transport oneself back to the bygone era of black and white Hollywood films. Imagine the starlets, the parties, the chic lifestyle. Oh, the amazing stories this home could whisper to you if only it could speak.
A Home to Serious Talent
Whoopi Goldberg, now sixty-two, has had a long and storied career in standup comedy, film, and television. She may be best known these days for her long-standing run as a host on the television talk show The View. But, before she came to rest on television, Goldberg was primarily known as an actor and comedian.
Goldberg is a member of a very select club of only twelve entertainers that can boast of having won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony award. They are accolades for her work in The Color Purple, Ghost, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and as a standup.
The Home Itself
In addition to its history as a Hollywood star’s abode (twice over), the home has many other selling points. In addition to the marble and hardwood floors mentioned above, the home also includes a formal entryway, a sunken living room with an elegant marble fireplace, a formal library with built-in shelving, a stunning kitchen with excellent fixtures and appliances, and beautiful appointments throughout.
From the exterior, the home is a gorgeous example of early modern architecture. The home is almost 7,000 square feet and the lot boasts more than 200 feet of frontage on the North Rim of Amalfi Drive in the Palisades. The kidney-shaped pool, exquisitely maintained grounds, and mature trees give the estate the look and feel of an earlier era.
The Complete Package
Between the home’s pedigree as a fixture in both the Golden Age of Hollywood and its recent life as the home of a contemporary multimedia super star, there’s more than enough history to justify its price tag.
Add to that the gorgeous appointments, luxurious grounds, and absolutely amazing location, and you have one of the hottest properties on the market for this or any other area. Don’t expect this home to be on the market long, or to come back up for sale anytime soon – if you’re interested in owning Whoopi’s Pacific Palisades home, you’d best make your move now.
