A Little Piece of Hollywood History – Edward H. Griffith’s Three Arch Bay Estate
Used as a backdrop in early feature films, this amazing Three Arch Bay estate is the perfect home for those who enjoy luxury, but would also like to own a little bit of cinema history.
Built in 1929 by the famous director and producer Edward H. Griffith, the property is stylish and glamorous in an unmistakably ‘Hollywood’ way. Covering almost an acre of oceanfront land, the estate has its own private beach, a swimming pool carved into the rocks and replenished regularly by the tides, as well as the iconic lighthouse it’s known for.
The main mansion offers 4,000-square-feet of living space and was designed in line with a distinctly nautical theme, with features a ship’s staircase, porthole windows, cabinetry, millwork, cage elevator, Captain’s master bedroom with fireplace, and a den designed by the art director of Mutiny on the Bounty.
When it comes to the outdoors, owners and guests will enjoy a stone patio stretching across the oceanfront, offering a perfect spot for casual gatherings. Stairs go down from there to the private beach, while a suspension bridge provides access to the natural pool. There’s also, of course, the famous lighthouse, with a viewing room and bath.
This unique property is currently on the market, priced at $24,950,000.
