When you think about perfect pairs, “Hollywood” and “luxury” are the PB&J of the Los Angeles real estate market, and these two homes for sale definitely have both. Fans of cinematic history will no doubt give a standing ovation to both of these listings, though each seemingly sets the scene for a different era of Hollywood style and glamour.

Do you find yourself acting out your love for the 1920s and the decade of silent films? Or does the vibrant glamour of the 1930s and 1940s “golden era of Hollywood” make you want to scream with joy? Whether you prefer Charlie Chaplin or Clark Gable, there’s surely an Oscar waiting to be awarded to each of these stunning homes.

So without further ado, here are the nominees for listings representing the history of film and television:

Once lived in by Errol Flynn, this three-bedroom, 4.5-bath home in the Hollywood Hills has been completely restored to its original Hollywood glamour.  No doubt the playboy actor took advantage of the stunning downtown L.A. views and lavish master suite to enchant and charm all his party guests. And if the interior wasn’t enough to make people swoon, there’s always the pool level and its unique cabana, which is perfect for those spur-of-the-moment al fresco parties.

This seven-bedroom , seven-bathroom private oasis in the heart of Beverly Hills would definitely make the perfect getaway for Hollywood’s elite, and can you imagine the pool parties one could host in the lagoon-style pool with its cascading waterfalls?!
