Heather House, the Hollywood Hills home of legendary celebrity talent agent Ed Limato, recently hit the market in California at $45 Million. The home is notably one of the most famous party palaces of the Hollywood elite, with the most A-list celeb parties being held at the mansion than any other, according to the owners. The listings comes from listing agents Stephen Resnick and Jonathan Nash of Hilton & Hyland.

The Heather House was originally built by entertainer Dick Powell and actress Joan Blondell in 1937. The house, which was built in a French-regency style, occupied 1.62 acres on the infamous 90210 Heather Road. The couple purchased this grand estate as construction was wrapping up in 1938 and lived there with their two children until the house was sold to to actor George Raft. Raft, being the man that he was, regularly had overnight visitors stay over including Betty Grable and Marlene Dietrich among other actresses at the time. It wasn’t until 1956 when Hollywood super-agent, Ed Limato, purchased the property where he lived for the next 40 years. With over $6 million spent on additions, Limato added a billiard room, an aquarium, gilt furniture and marble bathrooms.

While modern mansions in Beverley Hills have their own charm and prestige, nothing beats the signature stylings of Los Angeles’ homes and mansions steeped in the history of this company-town. Heather House, with its newly renovated interior and rich history of show business elite, is the perfect home for anyone wanting to live the high life just as Limato and his band of celebrity clients would.
