138 Acres Above Hollywood Sign Hits the Market Today

As the World’s Ultimate Valentine’s Day Offering


— Hollywood’s Highest Peak Initially Purchased by Howard Hughes as a Sweetheart Gift to Ginger Rogers Available for $22 Million—

In 1940, Hollywood legend Howard Hughes purchased a major piece of real estate in Los Angeles that he planned to develop into a private Shangri-La for him and his then love interest Ginger Rogers. Though Hughes never developed the love nest, it remained in his estate until 2002, and on Wednesday, February 13th, the property of the century hits the market.

Featuring unparalleled, 360-degree vistas of the greater Los Angeles area, from downtown to the Pacific Ocean to the entire San Fernando Valley, the 138 acres consists of five adjacent parcels of land with the potential to develop a single family residence and guest house on each, or a single compound spanning the entire property atop Hollywood’s highest crest. Perched adjacent to the iconic Hollywood Sign, the property holds the highest point in the region – the 1821-foot-high Cahuenga Peak – and is on the market for $22 million dollars.
