Fans of Frank Sinatra may be familiar with this William Pereira-designed midcentury estate, known as Byrdview, one of the the classic crooner’s homes during the 1950s and '60s. Built in 1949, Byrdview is one of four residential homes designed by the famed midcentury architect, known for his futuristic designs that include the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco.
Sinatra was said to have hosted lavish parties at the iconic estate, and Marilyn Monroe reportedly lived in the guesthouse at one point. Named one of the most recognized celebrity homes in America, Byrdview has more recently made appearances in TV shows like Mad Men and Californication, and in films like Ali and Dreamgirls. The home even served as the location for two of last year’s Super Bowl commercials.
