One of the largest homes ever built under the auspices of esteemed architect Paul Williams has come to market after having only three owners in its 80-year history. Williams, the first African American to become a member of the American Institute of Architects as well as the first African American to be elected to their highest honor of AIA Fellow, was known for designing many celebrity homes around Los Angeles in the 1930s and 40s. Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra were a few of his celebrity clients, as was radio star Charles Correll who was the original owner of this three-acre estate in Holmby Hills.

Now dubbed the Azria Estate, the 30,000 square feet of living spaces encompasses a total of 60 rooms, with 17 bedrooms and at least two dozen bathrooms. Phillipe Starck-designed interiors bring the home up to modern day standards while still staying true to the original DNA of the Williams’ footprint. The home opens to a floor-to-ceiling Swarovski chandelier in the expansive foyer, then leads to a layout capturing the views of the three-acre estate.
