The 1997 crime movie L.A. Confidential was filmed at this home in Los Angeles, California. The home is now listed for $7.495 million. It comes in at 5,000 square feet and includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a formal dining room, and a two-story living room.
L.A. Confidential was a late-1990s film set in the classic L.A. crime scene. It’s still considered one of the best of its kind, though it also received much acclaim during its release. The film stars Kim Basinger, Russel Crowe, and Kevin Spacey. The year of its release, it was nominated for nine Academy Awards and won two — for Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.
This Los Angeles home was built in Spanish style in 1923. It has since been updated a few times and measures 5,000 square feet. It features four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The stunning formal dining room is home to beautiful French doors that open directly onto the surrounding grounds.
The living room is also something to behold — with two stories, “high ceilings” don’t begin to describe it. Dark wood floors contrast dramatically with the light stucco walls, which encompass the room’s large fireplace. A stunning staircase frames the room and leads up along the back wall to the second floor, where an ornate chandelier lights the space.
The primary bedroom features stunning French doors leading to a balcony, and the home’s various bathrooms are lined with gorgeous tiling from floor to ceiling. In a home like this, there is, of course, a large chef’s kitchen, an outdoor dining area, and a spacious guest house.
This movie-set home has it all. Other features include a pool, putting green, and a private bocce ball court. The house’s character speaks volumes as well.
In true Spanish-style form, the architecture includes beautiful archways and large, airy windows. Inside, you’ll also find an impressive wrought-iron staircase, as well as several fireplaces. The surrounding grounds are just as iconic.
Beyond the recreational features, the property is home to lush vegetation and beautiful lawns for entertaining. The outdoor dining space includes a casual rustic dining table with delicate lighting, as well as an indoor-outdoor bar and a poolside firepit. A second outdoor patio space is open to the warm California sun — perfect for a relaxing afternoon with a cold beverage!
This movie-set home is part of Hollywood history. The 1997 crime film L.A. Confidential is considered one of the best crime movies set in L.A. ever made. This home was chosen as one of the sets. Its classic Old World Spanish style lent the film the classic L.A. tone the designers were looking for. Most of the other sets from the film were in the same neighborhood, as were scenes from many other films.
Now, the L.A. Confidential home is on the market, listed for $7.495 million. It features four bedrooms and five bathrooms and comes in at 5,000 square feet.
