Greta Garbo’s Beverly Hills home hits the market

The Beverly Hills residence once occupied by iconic Swedish actress Greta Garbo has been relisted for $10 million.

The property, located in the exclusive Crest Streets neighbourhood, is being marketed by Markus Canter and Cristie St. James of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

This new asking price represents a significant reduction from its initial $12 million listing in early 2022.

The home itself is a three-storey, almost 437sq m property, boasting five to six bedrooms and five bathrooms, in addition to a powder room.

Although few of its original Jazz Age details remain, the house underwent an extensive renovation in the early 2000s by HGTV-featured interior designer Nicole Sassaman.

It last changed ownership in 2006 for nearly $7.5 million, when it was purchased by a Nevada-based company linked to Russian film producer and tech investor Arcadiy Golubovich.

Configured to maximise sweeping views of the downtown skyline, the residence includes two fireplaces and three balconies.

An infinity-edge swimming pool and a large spa feature at the back of the house, offering unobstructed city views.

The design also allows for direct access to the pool through sliding glass doors in the living room.

Below the pool area, there are two grassy terraces, further enhanced by lush foliage and retractable awnings, providing an intimate outdoor lounge space.

Greta Garbo, who moved frequently during her time in Hollywood, lived in this Beverly Hills home briefly in 1937, around the release of the film Camille.

She was said to have shared the space with British conductor Leopold Stokowski, who later married American socialite Gloria Vanderbilt. Garbo eventually retired in 1941 and moved to New York, where she lived until her death in 1990.

Her New York apartment was also listed last year for $7.25 million but was withdrawn from the market due to a lack of interest.
