Sydney Sweeney acquires vintage Bel Air estate for $6.2 million

After making headlines last year for discussing her financial challenges with The Hollywood Reporter, Sydney Sweeney has made a significant investment.

The acclaimed star of Euphoria and The White Lotus recently purchased a historic Bel Air property for a staggering $6.2 million, according to Dirt.com.

Sweeney, who previously expressed difficulty in affording a house in a gated community, triumphed in a bidding war, paying $250,000 more than the asking price for the estate.

Spanning over 1.25 acres, the 1930s estate echoes classic Hollywood charm, reminiscent of the iconic “Sunset Boulevard” scenes.

It has been in the industry’s grasp for years.

The last time it changed hands was in 1984 for just under $350,000 when it was purchased by the son of renowned screenwriter Delmer Daves, celebrated for his collaborations with legends like Humphrey Bogart and Jimmy Stewart.

The estate offers a significant opportunity for renovation.

It is surrounded by luxurious new mansions worth $20 million and above, suggesting potential for upscale development.

While the listing didn’t provide interior glimpses, it hinted that the main and guest houses might need to be torn down.

However, given Sweeney’s evident penchant for historic homes – she owns a 1930s Westwood residence – a restoration might be on the cards.

Such an endeavour would undoubtedly be comprehensive, from rejuvenating the 417sq m main building to tending the expansive, forested grounds.

Amid the overgrown canopy, the estate retains its allure.

Hidden by lush foliage, the ivy-clad main house promises privacy and serenity away from the city’s hustle.

Its backyard boasts a spacious brick patio and an impressive swimming pool, with sunlight filtering beautifully through the trees.

Sweeney’s future plans for the property remain speculative, but one thing’s certain: the actress has secured a slice of Hollywood’s golden past.
