On the hilltops above Sunset Boulevard, the luxurious Paramour Estate was once the landmark of silent cinema. In the 1920s, the house was nestled in the residential neighborhood of Silver Lake. Today, this Spanish Revival-style residence is a lovely escape from Los Angeles.
The property is very romantic as it offers a dark and mysterious setting and has the most beautiful view of the city and beyond. It was built in 1923 by architect Robert D. Farguhar and has been classified as a cultural-historical monument in 1988.
Public personalities such as Gwen Stefani, Sting, Elton John, John Mayer, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed music in the mansion. Scenes from “Halloween: 20 Years Later”, “Intolerable Cruelty”, and “Scream 3” were also recorded there, as well as Britney Spears’ video clip “My prerogative”.
Even though The Paramour Mansion hosts many events, not everyone can push the door open unannounced. But in case you’re passing by, here’s the address: it’s 123 Micheltorena Street.
