Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2008
The newly restored former Judy Garland / Sammy Davis Jr. Estate has been listed for sale (http://www.8850evanview.com). The Sunset Strip estate built by Judy Garland and Vincent Minnelli and later owned by Sammy Davis Jr. at 8850 Evanview Drive just off of Sunset Plaza has been listed for sale at $4,995,000.00.
The 5000 square foot home sits on a double lot comprising more than 13,000 square feet and features a 1 bedroom, 3 bath guest house / cabana built by Sammy Davis Jr. The property has recently undergone a full restoration and renovation by the renowned firm of Davis Design and Development and is being listed for sale by Gillian Caine of Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills South.
Mr. Davis of Davis Design and Development purchased the property in September, 2007 with a vision of restoring it to its original glory and adding amenities befitting today's celebrity lifestyle. "When Gillian first showed me this amazing property last year, I was completely blown away." Says Davis, whose firm has built many of the finest homes in the Sunset Strip, Doheny Hills area, "You just don't see this caliber of property with these features in the Sunset Plaza area. The unique design of the house with such large square footage, the usable double lot, the privacy, views, and that fabulous pool area and cabana had me really excited… add in the incredible celebrity history and it was a done deal for me. " Although the house was perfectly livable as it was, Davis had a much more grand scheme in mind. He immediately put his award winning team to work restoring the home, grounds, and guest house. The original design and integrity have been retained while restoring or up-dating virtually everything to today's most sophisticated standards, including the kitchen, baths, finishes, and systems. State of the art entertainment and security systems were added in addition to many custom and eco-friendly features. Extensive photos and information are available at http://8850evanview.com .
"The second I saw this property I knew it was a one of kind, diamond in the rough. You could feel Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and the whole Rat Pack hanging out in the cabana. Not to mention that Judy Garland also lived here at one time… amazing!" says Gillian Caine of Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills South, "I knew this had to go to someone who could appreciate how special and rare this compound is with its rich Hollywood history, and restore it with the love it deserves… I immediately thought of Rob (Davis). I specialize in high end "green" properties so I helped Rob's people add as many eco-friendly features as possible and they did a fantastic job all around. Someone is going to get a real trophy property here." The property is featured at (http://www.8850evenview.com)
The property boasts 5 bedrooms and 7 ½ baths in over 6100 total square feet of fully landscaped, sprawling grounds, sweeping city lights and canyon views, a fully automated home theater, solar heated - hotel style pool area, a custom chefs kitchen, multiple decks and patios, and an unmatched celebrity history. There are pictures throughout the house of major celebrities attending parties and events there in the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. Including Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Peter Lawford.
