Howard Hughes’ Former Home
535 Haynes Ave, Beverly Hills, California 90210
If you’ve seen the movie “The Aviator” then you have a good idea for who Howard Hughes was. If not, he was a seriously big deal in his time. Howard Robard Hughes, Jr. (1905 – 1976) was an American business tycoon, entrepreneur, investor, aviator, aerospace engineer, inventor, filmmaker and philanthropist. During his lifetime, he was known as the wealthiest self-made man in the world, despite the fact that he had inherited 75% of the family business upon the death of his father. As a maverick film tycoon, Hughes gained prominence in Hollywood from the late 1920s, making big-budget and often controversial films like The Racket (1928), Hell’s Angels (1930), Scarface (1932), and The Outlaw (1943). Howard Hughes’ Beverly Hills house is 4300 square feet with a modern architectural design and contemporary decor.
