Driving along the wide, leafy streets of Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates is reminiscent of the days before McMansions, traffic and gated communities. The exclusive enclave of mostly single-story, modern houses evokes the prototypical image of SoCal’s “good life”—cocktails by the pool while Sinatra (who lived there for a time) plays in the background. “It’s a beautiful encapsulation of a moment in time,” says Brad Dunning, an interior designer who has remodeled a handful of residences in the neighborhood. While the area has always appealed to a certain monied set— producers, doctors, titans of industry—it has recently seen an influx of artists, actors and style-setters jonesing for floor-to-ceiling windows and magnificent city views, as well as a penchant for dining at nearby hotspots like Soho House and BOA. Paul Trousdale, who bought the land from the Doheny family in 1954, developed the 410-acre community for luxury housing in the 1950s and ’60s. Tucked behind Greystone Mansion, the hillside cluster of custom-built houses north of Sunset—bounded by Doheny, Schuyler and Hillcrest roads—attracted Hollywood’s earliest boldface names. Groucho Marx, Dinah Shore, Barbara Stanwyck and Danny Thomas all called Trousdale home. Even Richard Nixon lived there while running for governor of California. But what’s drawing recent buyers like former Dior Homme creative director Hedi Slimane and celeb photog Matthew Rolston is the architecture. The leafy hills are full of flat-roofed pads with rock facades and generous carports, and its list of architects reads like a who’s who of midcentury design. -an excerpt from ModernLuxury by Melissa Gluck
