Helen Mirren And Taylor Hackford List Hollywood Hills Mansion For $18.5 Million

The estate was constructed in 1908 for silent movie actor Dustin Farnum, and in the years before Hackford bought it in the 1980s, there were relatively few owners.



Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford, a prominent couple in Hollywood, have advertised their expansive Hollywood Hills house for $18.5 million. But they reportedly haven’t decided whether they actually intend to sell the mansion — since they’re also considering just renting it out if the right tenant happens to come along.

It’s understandable that Mirren and Hackford would have mixed feelings about letting go of the home, even though they primarily live on Lake Tahoe in Nevada now. Before being married in 1997, Mirren claims that it was their first home together, and they moved in back in the 1980s.

“It’s very unusual to have a house that’s, you know, over 100 years old and it’s only had four owners over that time because L.A. houses trade often… The history of this home and the fact that every resident was a successful artist in Hollywood made us feel incredibly privileged.”

If the mansion’s $18.5 asking price is beyond of your price range, keep in mind that you may live there for only $45,000 each month.
