A Beverly Hills home that actress Mary Pickford bought for her mother is pocket-listed at $6.5 million.
The Spanish-style villa, constructed in 1929 and designed by Paul Williams, is set on more than a third of an acre on a quiet cul-de-sac. The grounds include Mediterranean-inspired gardens, a detached office/guest house with a fireplace and a swimming pool.
The living room features its original coffered ceiling details. A formal dining room, a den with a fireplace, a library, a breakfast room, four bedrooms and seven bathrooms are also within the 4,807 square feet of living space.
The Oscar-winning Pickford, who died in 1979 at 87, gained fame in the 1910s in such silent films as “The Poor Little Rich Girl,” “Stella Maris” and “Daddy Long Legs.” She was a co-founder of United Artists and helped found the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
