Sold for $61.5 Million: Meridith Baer Home Staged Southern California’s Priciest Home Sale This Year

The historic Bel Air estate of hotel magnate, philanthropist, and sportsman W. Barron Hilton just sold for $61.5 million, staged by Meridith Baer Home!

The sale is Southern California’s priciest so far this year.

The 15,000 square foot mansion was built in 1936 by Paul R. Williams, a pioneering architect with a list of legendary clients including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.

Boasting 13 bedrooms and several living and entertaining spaces, the house’s storied highlight may be its executive office, with its desk bought by Conrad N. Hilton and passed down the family’s generations.

We styled the property with grand transitional elegance, honoring its classic English Georgian architecture while subtly updating its interiors with contemporary poise.

Rising to the challenge of furnishing so palatial a space, we aimed to show upmarket buyers how they might live in each room with both comfort and sophistication.
