Welcome to Trousdale Estates
Real estate developer Paul Trousdale, who built over 25,000 homes in Southern California during his career, is best known for creating the swanky Beverly Hills enclave known as Trousdale Estates.
Construction on the neighborhood began in the 1950s and continued through the 1970s, with renowned architects like Richard Dorman
, Wallace Neff
, and Lloyd Wright
all contributing. Interestingly, each home was limited to span no more than 3,000 feet and one story high in order to preserve the gorgeous landscapes. Thus, Trousdale Estates real estate has the distinct characteristic of drawing in architecture buffs and those looking for panoramic views of the city and the Pacific Ocean alike.
Due to the time period in which many of these homes were built, mid century architecture dominates the neighborhood. However, there are some ultra-modern homes sprinkled in for those looking for something a bit more contemporary. No matter which home style you choose, you can be assured that you’re receiving the best security possible, as gated abodes and around-the-clock monitoring are a given.
What to Love
● Homes built by prolific architects
● Panoramic views spanning the city and ocean
● Quiet and secluded
● Close proximity to popular destinations

Things to Do
Trousdale Estates is a residential community, so there aren’t endless restaurants and shops within its borders. However, due to its beautifully designed architecture and countless in-home amenities, inhabitants can keep entertained without ever having to leave their property. For example, almost every home comes with a swimming pool, making it the perfect cool oasis on those plentiful warm and sunny Los Angeles days. It’s also a great place to throw a dinner party or barbecue, with its unbeatable scenic backdrop, especially at sunset.
Trousdale Estates is deeply embedded into Los Angeles history with the Greystone Mansion
--a main attraction of the area. Though once a private property, the mansion is now listed on the Registry of Historic Places and available to tour. Visitors can peruse over 46,000 square feet while learning about the building’s storied past. An iconic piece of Los Angeles real estate, you may also recognize Greystone Mansion for its appearance in films such as Spider-Man, The Social Network, The Holiday, and many more.
