Billy Dee Williams Lists Beverly Hills Home for $4,499,000
Best known for his role as Han Solo’s buddy Lando Calrissian, public records show Williams bought the property for a mere $553,000. The property is now on the Beverly Hills real estate market for $4,499,000. He may be one of the few celebrities making a profit selling; although the median Beverly Hills home value is $1,880,200, home values have dropped an average of 4.7 percent year-over-year, according to the Zillow Home Value Index.
The 5,295-sq ft home is located on half an acre in the celebrity-studded Trousdale Estates, a neighborhood where Burt Reynolds’ former home is for sale, and Elvis and Priscilla’s former home was up for rent. Other former celeb residents include Dean Martin, Jennifer Aniston and Eddie Murphy. Developed by Paul Trousdale in the 1950s, the 410-acre hillside ‘hood not only has expansive views of Los Angeles but unrivaled privacy. The single-family homes have been designed by many famous architects like Wallace Neff, Paul R. Williams, A. Quincy Jones, Lloyd Wright and Harold Levitt.
William’s contemporary-style home was built in 1961 and includes a gated courtyard and motor court as well as lush, landscaped gardens. The 6-bedroom, 6-bathroom home is described as “Zen-like” with an open floor plan with large rooms and high ceilings. The kitchen has been updated with modern appliances, and the master suite includes his-and-her walk-in closets. Maid’s quarters, a formal dining room and large family room round out the rest of the house. The back of the house opens to a deck with large pool with spa and views of the city and ocean below.
Mike Carter of Keller Williams Realty holds the listing.
