About Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California
The Greystone Mansion is on the Doheny Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills. The fabulous design is English Gothic Revival from renowned Southern California Architect Gordon B. Kaufman. Completed in 1928 for the prominent Doheny family who made their fortune in oil. The mansion consists of of over 46,000 square feet of living space and includes lush flower gardens that grow year-round in the temperate Beverly Hills climate so familiar to this region not far downtown Los Angeles and the Southern California beaches
Recognized as an historic landmark, the mansion and grounds were dedicated as a City of Beverly Hills public park in the 1970’s, sparing the property from a fate of demolition to build a reservoir. The property serves as an ideal location for events, weddings and even film shoots. A display inside the mansion highlights its significance as Beverly Hills grew into a modern community.
Given as a gift to Edward Doheny, Jr., there’s a mystery that surrounds this interesting building. Hollywood ghost hunters have written about the case in which the owner was murdered in his beautiful home. The murder was never solved and some believe the spirit of “Ned”, as he was called, continues to roam the mansion. Continuing this interesting saga, the Greystone Mansion was sold to Henry Crown of the Park Grey Corporation, Chicago, for $1.5 million. Crown never occupied the building.
Today, the land alone is worth millions of dollars and the City of Beverly Hills is delighted to own the property, having restored it to its original grace through fundraising events. The mansion includes terraced patios, flowing fountains and elegant wood treatments that adorn walls and staircases.
