The Beverly Estate is a historic property formerly known as the Hearst Mansion, the Hearst Estate, the Beverly House, and the Getz House. The property was formally renamed to the Beverly Estate in 2022. The property is located at 1011 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, California.
The mansion, designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann and constructed in 1926, blends together influences from various architectural styles. Often described as being built in the Mediterranean Revival style, the mansion features a Spanish colonial facade coupled with Italian-style gardens. The terraces outside the home can accommodate a party of up to 400 seated guests, and the home can accommodate more casual parties of up to 1,000 guests. The landscaping was designed by Paul Thiene.
The property occupies a place of historic and cultural significance in Beverly Hills, having previously served as the residence of film star Marion Davies and her partner, William Randolph Hearst. Notably, President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, stayed at the mansion during their honeymoon. Joseph Kennedy also used the mansion as his headquarters during the 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles. It has served as a location for films such as “The Godfather” and “The Bodyguard,” and more recently a music video by Beyoncé for the singer’s “Black Is King” album.
