Whoopi Goldberg's 7,039-square-foot former residence is located on one of the premier streets in Pacific Palisades, a coastal neighborhood in the Westside of Los Angeles. The acclaimed actress and comedian bought the estate in 1993, owning it for nearly 25 years before selling it in 2018. Now, it's back on the market seeking yet another buyer.
Yet, Goldberg isn't the only celebrity with ties to the Art Deco abode. First built in 1933 for Austrian author Vicki Baum, the home was later acquired by late English actor David Niven, who starred in The Pink Panther and Casino Royale. Boasting a gated and private 28,000-square-foot lot, as well as a detached guest house, it's no surprise why the compound has been so popular among Hollywood A-listers.
Offering six spacious bedrooms, the home also retains many of its distinctive original features, including a black-and-white checkered floor in the main foyer, as well as an onyx-clad master bathroom. A free-flowing layout connects expansive living spaces, while a generously sized, remodeled kitchen overlooks an inviting swimming pool.
