Mercer Vine is proud to announce the sale of the historic Owlwood Estate for $90 million. 

Owlwood, located at 141 S. Carolwood Drive, is an iconic Los Angeles estate. The home has had many storied owners. Built in 1936 for Florence Quinn, its previous residents include Sonny and Cher, Tony Curtis, Engelbert Humperdinck, Esther Williams, Hotel Bel-Air founder Joseph Drown, and 20th Century Fox founder Joseph Schenk. 

To say Owlwood is a Los Angeles treasure is an understatement. Set on more than ten acres, the luxury home is surrounded by verdant grounds with towering trees and lush gardens. The luxury estate includes a swimming pool and pool house, fruit trees, fountains and seemingly endless green space. Inside the home, sumptuous wood paneling and intricate molding on the ceilings recall old Hollywood. 

Previous owners left their mark on Owlwood Estate -- the home once featured a solid gold bathroom sink feature shaped like an oil derrick, courtesy of former owner William Keck, founder of Superior Oil. 

The buyer intends to honor the estate's legendary past, said Bob Shapiro, head of Sturmer Pippin Investments, LLC. 

"The Owlwood Estate has been the unchallenged symbol of uber-luxury since being built during the Great Depression, and we will keep it that way for another 80 years," said Shapiro, head of Sturmer Pippin Investments and CEO of Woodbridge Luxury Homes.
