Award-winning actress and model, Audrey Hepburn, is known for films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady.

While filming My Fair Lady in the mid-sixties, Hepburn lived in a six-bedroom mansion in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, with her first husband, Mel Ferrer.

The house was recently listed on Jade Mills Estates for $14 million. It was built in the late thirties by architect Paul Williams and occupies a 48,000 square feet property. 

As reported by Elle Decor, the house was also owned by A-listers like Eva Gabor and Mia Farrow and boasts a tennis court, guesthouse, and pool. 



The guesthouse has its own living room, bedroom, dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms, surrounded by well-maintained gardens and a pool. 

The welcoming foyer of the main house spreads out into a spacious living room with a spiral staircase and crystal chandelier, while the family room comes with a cozy fireplace. 

The living room was renovated to include a built-in reading nook with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. According to Shared, Hepburn was an avid reader. 

Other rooms in the house include a formal dining room perfect for extravagant dinner parties, as well as a breakfast room with lots of natural sunlight and a kitchen. 


The main sleeping quarters and three bedrooms can be found on the second floor, with two staff bedrooms on the first floor. 

Even though Hepburn lived in the home during the mid-sixties, the property is formally known as The Eva Gabor Estate. 

Hepburn and Ferrer divorced in 1968 after fourteen years of marriage. The following year, she exchanged vows with Andrea Dotti, and the couple remained together for 13 years. 

The Gigi star was diagnosed with appendiceal cancer in 1992, and passed away in her sleep in January 1993, at the age of 63.
