Doheny; were known as the Doheny Ranch or the Doheny Estate; and included the Greystone Mansion. In 1954, Paul Trousdale purchased the grounds, while the mansion was purchased by industrialist Henry Crown. Shortly after, Trousdale convinced the Beverly Hills City Council to add the neighborhood to the city, which they accepted, and he renamed it the Trousdale Estates. Today it is known for it’s modern-inspired homes from the 70’s and iconic estates belonging to high end celebrities.
Trousdale first built 532 original lots, all subject to strict regulations devised by the Architectural Committee, including how high roofs could be. Early houses were designed by renowned architects Wallace Neff , Paul R. Williams, A. Quincy Jones, Frank Lloyd Wright and Harold Levitt. Allen Siple acted as the supervising architect.
