Hollywood Dell Hillside Fixer Spanish Revival | 2404 San Marco Drive

This legendary classic is steeped in Hollywood history and has played host to many musical acts including The Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac. Originally built for silent screen actress Mary Astor in 1925, the expansive five bedroom Spanish Revival villa is now up for sale.

2404 San Marco Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068

$1,995,000 | 5 Beds | 5.5 Baths | 2,706 Sq. Ft. | $737 / Sq. Ft. | 0.27 Acre Lot | Built in 1925

The nearly 100 year old home is in need of a restoration, and renderings of its possibilities are included below. But underneath the future fixes and updates, one can picture a home as beautiful and timeless as ever.

The three-story home encompasses three separate lots and contains a main house, guest house, a swimming pool, and a stream-fed koi pond.

Inside, you will find many lovely original features, including a spiral staircase, ornate plaster and wrought iron work, French doors and windows, stained glass, and a turret.

A grand living room and a romantic spiral stair case complete the main floor.

Arguably unassuming from the San Marco entrance, the property goes from street-to-street down to 2405 Holly Drive and boasts a gated parking area below.

The Spanish revival home exudes old California charm and details with beautiful verdant views of the Hollywood hillside.

The property is close to downtown, the major studios, shopping, nightlife, hiking at the Hollywood Reservoir and Runyon canyon, and so much more.

Each story of the three levels boasts multiple private decks and patios.

The 2-story guest house has a wall of windows and overlooks a fern grotto and the koi pond.

This incredible property is sure to be a favorite enclave for out-of-town visitors and artistic collaborators.

The crystal blue pool is magical and the property’s many meandering trails and lush private grounds offer plenty of spots to explore and inspire.

Marshall Chess is among the property’s previous owners. He co-founded the Rolling Stones’ record label in the early ’70s. The Stones recorded several of their hits here over the next two decades and were frequent overnight guests, often allegedly drawing the members of Fleetwood Mac over for daytime pool parties or late night songwriting sessions. Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham lived just down the street throughout the ’70s at 2282 El Contento Drive.

Built for The Maltese Falcon star and Academy Award winning actress Mary Astor when she was just 19 years old, the sprawling walled and gated estate has many stories to tell and many more to come.
