The Greystone Mansion is a 55 room estate in Beverly Hills that is often utilized as a filming location. Currently, 24 interior decorators are showcasing their work until December 22nd. This is a rare occasion, because the mansion is usually open only for special events. (The surrounding park area can be accessed on a daily basis—unless they are filming or giving a special event.)
Let me tell you briefly about the history of this place: the Greystone Mansion was built in 1928 by the oil tycoon family Doheny. The owner and only heir of the Doheny family, Edward L. (Ned) Doheny, Jr., had received this house as a gift from his father. Unfortunately, he died after four months in this mansion, being involved in a murder/suicide tragedy. The mystery of this case has never been completely solved; fact is, that he died together with a friend and his secretary.
The mansion now belongs to the City of Beverly Hills. Opening hours until December 22nd are Tue-So 10-3 pm PST. Admission: $35.
