A rare opportunity to step inside Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills

Quite often during our celebrity and movie star homes tours of Beverly Hills, we visit the stunning Greystone Mansion.  It’s a gem of a park maintained by Beverly Hills, and guests are allowed to walk the grounds and get up close to this enormous mansion.  It’s rare that guests are allowed inside.  Several times a year, visitors have the opportunity to view the former home of the Doheny family, by way of an interior design showcase, or the always popular, Concours d’Elegance.  Check out the latest showcase to get behind these legendary walls. The Manor:  Murder and Madness at Greystone August 1st – 3rd, 8th – 9th, 15th – 17th, 24th |   6:00 PM Sharp Greystone welcomes Theatre 40 back
