BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The former Danny Thomas estate, set on what is arguably the best home site in LA, is on the market, listed by Aaron Kirman, President of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group.
Located on 2.5 acres in Trousdale Estates at 1187 N. Hillcrest Road, the ultra-private compound sits atop Beverly Hills, with 360-degree views of the entire Los Angeles basin. Trousdale Estates is one of the most desirable and sought after areas in LA, and this sale is expected to set a new high for Beverly Hills home prices. According to a Wall Street Journal report that quoted expert sources, the price is $135 million.
The design of the palatial 18,000-square-foot home is influenced by Moorish architecture, with distinctive arches that showcase the views. Major interior features include a ballroom and a media room. The lavish interiors feature $2.5 million in Baccarat chandeliers, gold leaf ceilings and hand-woven carpets. A large outdoor entertainment area leads to a pool that overlooks all of LA. There is a huge motor court that holds 20 cars, a rare find in Trousdale Estates because of limited land availability.
The property offers complete privacy due to its position on a promontory, Mr. Kirman said. “What makes this estate so valuable is its site, the grounds and the view that is absolutely the best view in the city,” he added.

Mr. Thomas was the beloved star of The Danny Thomas Show (originally called Make Room for Daddy). He was also the founder of the award-winning St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, whose discoveries have revolutionized how doctors treat children with catastrophic illnesses.
John Aaroe Group, a prominent brokerage firm based in Beverly Hills, sold the estate next door to the Danny Thomas estate last December for the highest price in the history of Beverly Hills. The buyer was Swedish billionaire and Minecraft inventor Markus Persson. Kirman believes international buyers are among the top prospects for the former Danny Thomas estate as well.
