Swan Lake

Swans and the lake they swim in are included in the $24.5 million asking price for the famed Marmont Manor. More exotic birds can be found in the pagoda-style aviary, on the far side of the lake.

Caretaker's Cottage

No, it's not a home from The Hobbit set. It's Marmont Manor Caretaker's Cottage, one of seven buildings that make up this grand, three-acre estate in the Hollywood Hills. The property even has its own fire station, recognized by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Waterfall and Lake

It's hard to believe that the busy Sunset Strip is within walking distance of this peaceful lake and waterfall. That's part of what makes the Marmont Manor a one-of-a-kind property.

Wine Cellar

This wine cellar in the English Country-style estate could easily accommodate a formal dinner party, and has seen many a lavish wine tasting.

Dramatic Fireplace

The brick and stone hand-crafted mosaic fireplace soars three stories in the hunting lodge-style den in the main building.

Pool and Water Features

There are 14 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms in the main house, pool pavilion and five other buildings on the property that is lined by 300 mature pine trees, for maximum privacy.

Bird's Eye View

In this aerial view, you can see all seven buildings included on the Marmont Manor property, and get a better idea of where it's situated in the Hollywood Hills, just across from the famed celebrity hangout, the Chateau Marmont.
