Along with his first wife Jane Wyman, then-Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan lived in this Georgian Colonial Revival-style home designed by trailblazing architect Paul Williams.
When the Reagan-Wyman divorce was finalized in 1949, the house was deeded to Wyman, who lived there until 1954. The home is now for sale, listed at $6.75 million, and was recently featured by TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. Let’s take a look inside and out.
At 6,153 square feet, the classic five-bedroom, seven-bath house retains its original architectural layout with large rooms, high ceilings, hardwood floors and hand-crafted millwork.
The impressive foyer is designed in Williams’ signature oval style with a sweeping staircase and wrought-iron banister that continues through the second-floor overlook. The foyer with its grand chandelier, staircase curves, and stunning inlaid-wood floor set the tone of glamour for the Hollywood power couple’s guests.
Entertaining is a breeze in this majestic house with its large interior spaces, private yard and brick-paved courtyard, swimming pool, cabana with fireplace, fire-pit and terraces. Views from the windows are lush with mature landscaping. The reception hall includes a sunroom and the spacious family room has both a fireplace and a bar. The master suite takes up one whole side of the second floor along with three additional ensuite bedrooms.
The home is also known as the Shuwarger House, named for a Russian-born dressmaker who was the original owner. The house is the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour and could be yours on this Presidents Day for $6.75 million.
