Trousdale Estates

Welcome to Trousdale Estates


The Scoop

Located in the hills of Beverly Hills, Trousdale estates is named for Paul Trousdale, who developed the area in 1954. Once dotted with some of Los Angeles’s most storied mid-century houses (think houses designed by A. Quincy Jones, Hal Levitt, et al.), now some of the houses have been “renovated” or torn down completely to make way for stark, new construction moderns.

The Vibe

An interesting intersection of old school mid-century stalwarts (some who have actually lived there since the mid-century) and tycoons who paid for the their houses with their IPO money.

Famous Residents, Past and Present

Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis, Uber Co-Founder Garrett Camp, Kelly Wearstler.
