Description

For decades, celebrities have looked to Myra Nourmand to represent their homes with skill and discretion. But the owners who approached her about their 1928 estate moments from her own Beverly Hills home weren’t famous. Their home was—and it had been since June 20, 1947. On that day, legendary gangster Bugsy Siegel met his demise. He’d been leasing the property for his mistress, Virginia Hills, who served as a courier for the mob. To this day, 810 North Linden Drive is a legendary address. The fascination with Siegel, one of the mob’s most notorious figures and the driving force behind the birth of Las Vegas gambling, has never faded. (Unbelievably, the block had already made headlines the previous summer. That July, another key Vegas figure, tycoon Howard Hughes, spectacularly crashed an experimental plane across three of its mansions.) For a true architectural treasure, one moment of lurid drama is just a blip on the timeline. Myra has listed the property at $16.99 million. Set back on a knoll and minutes from the Beverly Hills Hotel, the half-acre compound has exceptional presence. A central turret flanked by balconies rises above the two-story roofline. Behind a massive, studded wood front door, original iron gates open to a two-story rotunda floored in hand-painted tiles. Above, fourteen tall, slender stained-glass windows soar over a grand curved staircase. Ornate iron gates open to the dining room with hand-carved coffered ceiling and large window framing the park-like garden. The 1928 vision of architects Joseph Fox and Sons has been carefully preserved, restored, and upgraded back to its period style, sensitive to its original architecture. Now owning the timeless, legendary 810 North Linden Drive is possible for the first time in two decades.
