In 1926, Edward Laurence Doheny gifted his son Edward “Ned” Laurence Doheny Jr., and his daughter-in-law Lucy, with a 12.58 acres parcel of land. Greystone mansion was built on this land at a cost of $3,135,563 (That’s about $50 million with inflation today!). It became the most expensive home built in California up to that point. The city purchased Greystone and the grounds for $1,100,000 on November 3, 1965. The grounds were converted into a park and a site for a 19,300,000 gallon subsurface reservoir. The City of Beverly Hills formally dedicated Greystone Park in 1971. On April 23, 1976 Greystone was added to the Department of Interior’s National Register of Historic Places.

Today, Greystone serves as the setting for a myriad of cultural and educational activities. Movies, commercials, T.V. shows and photo shoots are a major source of revenue for the upkeep of Greystone as are the exclusive weddings and reception sites located throughout the grounds. Most of all, Greystone provides the visitor with the opportunity for a quiet moment in a pastoral park, offering sweeping panoramic views of the city below, moments away from a busy urban environment.

You’re only allowed to explore the grounds (which are incredibly fabulous)- exterior only and not interior. But it’s such a beautiful place to hang – feels like another world! Cool things to see – turtles jumping off rocks and diving into the water, waterfalls, streams, gorgeous trees and lawns and architecture…. Definitely bring a camera!
