Kirk Douglas’s long-time Beverly Hills home, complete with Hollywood Walk of Fame, listed for $7.49M

Hollywood legends Kirk and Ann Douglas’ Beverly Hills home and garden walkway from the site’s floors by Tinseltown’s biggest stars hit the market for $7.495 million. This 1920s property is located in the Flats neighborhood, hidden from the street by tall hedges near Rodeo Drive and the Beverly Hills Hotel.

It was listed on December 6 by Rochelle Altas Mayes of Normand & Co.

The Douglas family was put into a trust in 1990, and purchased the property in 1976 for $400,000, according to its Redfin listing.

Ms Mays said the couple lived in the house until their deaths: He passed away in 2020 at the age of 103, and she died this year at the age of 102.

Set on just over a third of an acre featuring mature trees and gardens, the property includes a 4,648-square-foot single-storey main house and a two-story guest house.

Ms. Mays said the main house, which has four bedrooms and six bathrooms, is relatively modest for two famous people of this nature.

Ms. Mays said the backyard Walk of Fame is what sets the property apart.

“They had so much fun, I was told that Kirk would sign people on cement floors at dinner parties,” she said. “There are 22 stones, some of which are from their previous possessions.”

When she toured the property, she spent over an hour stepping among the stars, photographing and jotting the signed names.

“It’s like the Hollywood Walk of Fame with Grauman’s Chinese Theater on steroids,” she said, adding that it was “creative and special.”

In addition to the stone signed by Kirk Douglas and his four sons – Michael, Joel, Peter and Eric – she has documented a list of other celebrities, including Milton Berle, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan, Lucille Ball, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbra Streisand and countless other members of the Hollywood royal family. “I didn’t count all the signatures,” she said. Some stones have three or four names.

Other home amenities include paneled rooms, fireplaces, French doors that open onto a brick patio, a massive skylight, breakfast bar, butler pantry and a formal dining room with stained-glass ceiling.

One of the last surviving stars of Hollywood’s so-called golden age, Kirk Douglas was at the height of his career when in 1951 he divorced his first wife Diana Dale, mother of three of his four children, and married Anne. Boydens in 1954.

Over the years, he has starred in more than 90 films, and received an Honorary Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of his charitable work.

Because of Beverly Hills’ limited inventory, celebrity stamping and unusual signed flooring, Ms. Mays said she expected the property to sell quickly.

“I priced it based on the value of the land,” she said. “And nothing in Beverly Hills sells for less than $9 million. We’re accepting offers starting Monday, expecting to have 15 or more and to sell well above asking price.”

Douglas’ children did not respond to an email requesting comment.

The list was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
