The former home of renowned filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles has been sold for just over $8.8 million. Despite originally being listed at $8.25 million, the property received multiple offers, indicating strong interest even though its classic design doesn’t align with current decor trends.

Hitchcock acquired the home when he permanently moved to Los Angeles several years after his initial relocation in 1939, as reported by the Robb Report. The property’s previous owner was a businessman in the lumber and building supply sectors. According to tax records, the new owner is a foreign corporate entity associated with Dutch media mogul Reinout Oerlemans, the founder of the Eyeworks TV production company.

Designed by Carlton Burgess, the same architect responsible for Jack Benny’s Beverly Hills residence, this English-Country-inspired home underwent renovation and expansion in 1983. Nestled behind dense vegetation, this single-story residence sits on nearly two-thirds of an acre, covering more than 696 square meters.

Currently featuring two bedrooms, the house has the potential to accommodate four, along with five bathrooms. Inside, the living room boasts a spacious fireplace and high vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, while the dining room provides serene views of the lush gardens. The eat-in kitchen is adorned with hand-painted tiles and blue Brazilian granite countertops.

Outside, the property features a gated entry, mature trees, blooming gardens, and an expansive courtyard. A roomy loggia showcases an outdoor fireplace next to a sparkling turquoise swimming pool. Parking amenities include a three-car garage and additional parking spaces.
