The Raymond Burr Estate In Hollywood Hills

1830 N Sierra Bonita Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90046

6 BR, 8 BA

The Raymond Burr Estate, built in 1923, sits on just under 2 ½ acres of private park-like grounds above Hollywood Boulevard.

The Mediterranean estate is a unique listing to say the least! It’s definitely over the top and filled with a lot of … stuff. The 3-level home has 7,486 square feet of living space; a detached 1,211 square foot recording studio/office; and over 1,412 square feet of warehouse space. There is also a pool, great views, and extensive grounds.

Do you guys watch Game of Thrones?

Other parts of the home are less Medieval Times School of Interior Design, but still have a lot going on…

As a hobby and side business, Raymond Burr cultivated and hybridized orchids. He added 1,500 new orchids to the worldwide catalog–many of which came from the two greenhouses that remain on this property.

The outdoor area includes a pool, many patios, and grassy areas.

There are also rustic paths and a meandering road that leads to multiple vistas.

This residence is certainly over the top! It will appeal to an aficionado of Old Hollywood who’s looking to restore a piece of LA history, or a buyer who is looking for an estate property to build their dream home. If you’d like to see this incredible estate in person, email me or call me at 323-775-6305!

  1. Gasp! Did his sister finally give up on trying to maintain the estate (or is she even alive)?

    Man, I expect Norma Desmond to come down those steps any minute …

  2. This was not *AT ALL* what the home looked like, not in floor plan nor in furnishings when Burr owned it. Wow, the owner, Copeland, has let the place go to the dogs, inside and out. A shame, really since it’s a piece of Hollywood history.

    Of course, while Copeland himself is big in the music industry, real estate sellers will try to tie the house to Burr as he is the bigger name, but it’s –well, he’d turn over in his grave to see this attached to his name.

    1. Just wondering, is this still for sale, did someone buy it? What is this old homes status. I suppose for the price that developers would tear it down and start over which in a way would be a shame. I would love to see what it looked like when Raymond Burr owned it. I just watched Rear Window for the I don’t know how many time , so got me thinking about his home. Would be wonderful to have someone own it and love it and keep it as one of the old grand places of Hollywood.
