This 1920s-era pink stucco estate, which is set across 6.5 acres (2.6ha) north of Sunset Boulevard has featured in the film The Godfather. Hearst hosted frequent parties for the famous and powerful there. John F. Kennedy and his bride, Jacqueline, spent part of their honeymoon at the estate in 1953. Beverly House Compound was built in 1927 for the banker, Milton Getz, who sold it to Hearst 20 years later. It has been designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann, the same man who designed the Hoover Dam and the headquarters of the Los Angeles Times.
