If you enjoy the elegance and timelessness of old West Hollywood, we have the perfect home for you. Listed at $14.5 million, and owned by the famous songbird and actress Doris Day, this contemporary home was originally built in 1922 and was renovated over the years by Day and her husband, and manager, Marty Melcher.
The home is very modern yet classic in its original Beverly Hills essence. This ranch style abode includes four bedrooms and bathrooms at just over 4,300 square feet. Upon entry to the property, the secure double gates open up to a spacious driveway that also features a two-door garage. Stepping into the home you’ll notice rich, espresso-colored hardwood floors that contrast elegantly with neutral walls creating a light and airy atmosphere. Additionally, you’ll find a luxury chef’s kitchen equipped with gourmet appliances and an expansive island as the eye-catching centerpiece. Beamed ceilings with crown molding and walls of French doors open up to the back patio letting natural light fill the room from the floor to the ceiling
Another visually compelling feature of the home is the large master bedroom with two stunning crystal chandeliers. This ensuite features a luxurious marble bathroom decorated with two crystal light fixtures above the sink.
Clearly, Day’s home is a true timeless treasure. Walking through the home, you almost feel as if you’ve been transported back to old Hollywood. Between the ‘50s and ‘60s, Day became a household name in both the music and film industries. Through her success, Day kept her reputation as the “girl next door” because of her classy and respectful manner.
