Should I Take a Beverly Hills Celebrity Homes Tour?

celebrity tour los angeles

This post will focus on celebrity home tours in 5-Star Beverly Hills. There are guided tour options as well as one that you can do on your own for free. 

  • Self-Guided
  • Other LA Bus Tours

Disclosure:  We think you should consider our free tours but we have also provided other options. While our recommendations are always unbiased, we may receive a small share of sales through some of the links below at no cost to you. See the  full text .

INTRODUCTION

As you may know, several notable stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen DeGeneres, and Taylor Swift live in the Beverly Hills area located in the neighborhood of Hollywood Hills.

Of course, celebrities don't all live right next to each other, neither they are available for all days of the year, so it's not easy to find their homes without a bit of guidance.

As a result, several tour companies have made a name for themselves by providing tours of celebrity houses, residences, and filming locations.

However, if you have a car (or bike) you can explore on your own!

Los Angeles is known as a sprawling city and most celebrities live far enough that you will need to use a car to really get to see many of them.

Also, in many cases, the places you visit will no longer be occupied by famous people who once lived there, but they are still historically significant.

Several notable properties are difficult to see from the street, but it's important that you do not stop and hold up traffic while driving through these neighborhoods.

And of course, it is important to be respectful of people's homes and privacy.

To visit where your favorite celebrity lives, our picks for top things to do in LA .

Can you drive by celebrity homes in Beverly Hills?

Beverly Hills houses many famous Hollywood celebs, and you can drive by these celebrities' homes but do not stop. These homes are private property and personal space.

It's also worth noting that in most cases, these houses are either in gated communities or are far enough behind a gate that you won't be able to see them very well.

For the best views, trust a local tour guide.

CELEBRITY HOME BUS TOURS

Traveling through Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and the surrounding areas simply isn't reasonable without a vehicle of some sort.

Public transportation is not a good option for such a tour. So, you need private vehicles.

Thankfully, these many services and tour companies not only provide transportation but also offer commentary about each of the celebrity homes you will visit.

For disabled persons, you will find collapsible wheelchairs on approximately all these buses following the disabilities act.

These wheelchairs have removable wheels to provide more comfort to the disabled passenger.

Emotional support dogs or any other pet is not allowed. Only service animals as per the California State Law and Americans Disabilities Act are allowed.

If you want to see the handful of locations where the stars live without having to find each spot on your own, consider one of the following options.

While on your way must visit a Beverly Hills hotel, where you have a fair chance of seeing a celebrity.

So book your tour and set a reminder.

Each tour is about 2 hours as per our guesstimate in length and will cost equivalent to or between $40-$50 per person.

Some tours may offer a tier pricing format but others have a fixed rate.

The prices also vary as per the number of guests on your private tour. By private tour, we mean it's your immediate party and you.

Head east toward Foothill and then take a left. Foothill turns slightly right and becomes Doheny then turn left on Loma Vista.

5. Greystone Mansion (905 Loma Vista Drive)

While not a celebrity residence, many celebrities have set foot in this mansion.

Originally built in 1928 in Tudor revival style as a wedding gift from oil tycoon Edward Doheny to his son Ned Doheny and wife Lucy.

This masterpiece had 55 rooms, stables, kennels, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and exquisite English-style gardens.

A tragic fate bestowed on Ned only 4 months after moving into the massive home, however. He was found dead with his friend Hugh Plunkett. It was ruled a murder-suicide though it remains mysterious to this day.

Lucy continued living in this home with her children until 1955. It was then sold and the movie studios started renting it.

Today this mansion is a historic landmark, and museum and is still used for filming.

The building's resume is extensive. The Social Network, The Holiday, Young and the Restless, Spiderman, and Death Becomes Her , to name just a few.

Next is a slight left onto Mulholland and then a sharp left onto Franklin Canyon. Now turn right onto Mulholland.

8. Jack Nicholson (12850 Mulholland Drive)

Actor Jack Nicholson. Image Source: Wikimedia user Georges Biard, 2002.

This is probably one of the most disturbing locations you'll visit on your trip through Beverly Hills.

Not only is Jack Nicholson's estate tied to criminal investigations, but the house that once existed here has since burned down, prompting some to describe the land as "cursed."

However you choose to see it, this is certainly one of the most notable sites in Hollywood history.

The next location is literally right next door.

9. Marlon Brando (12900 Mulholland Drive)

Actor Marlon Brando. Image Source: Screenshot from On the Waterfront trailer via IMDb.

Not only did Brando live right next to Jack Nicholson, but he also lived with his neighbor for a short time.

From here, drive west on Mulholland Drive until you reach Benedict Canyon Drive and turn left.

10. Elton John (1400 Tower Grove Drive)

Unfortunately, the original mansion that once existed here has since been demolished due to structural problems.

After taking a look at this estate, keep going south on Benedict Canyon Drive.

11. Bruce Springsteen (1244 Benedict Canyon Drive)

Although this estate looks deceptively small from the road, the reality is that it sprawls back quite a bit.

Springsteen has reportedly lived here for quite some time, and there are indications that the property is much larger than it might appear.

With a musical career that spans over 50 years, Springsteen has won several Grammy Awards between the years of 1985-2013.

Turn left on Tower Road to find our next stop.

12. Jay Leno (1151 Tower Road)

The next stop is just down the road.

14. Lucille Ball (1000 Roxbury Drive)

Actress Lucille Ball. Image Source: Wikimedia via the Lever Brothers on August 31st, 1951.

Most people know Lucille for her unforgettable role in the classic sitcom I Love Lucy .

While alive, she made her home in this beautiful modern colonial house.

If you can believe it, Jack Benny lived right next door at the time, and he would sometimes visit them on a whim.

According to some anecdotes, Lucy would personally hand out candy at the front door every Halloween.

You'll find the next destination just down the street.

15. Diane Keaton (1015 Roxbury Drive)

Actress and Filmmaker Diane Keaton. Image Source: Wikimedia user Firooz Zahedi, 2011.

This Spanish-style home was originally owned by Betty Grable, but it would eventually be sold to Diane Keaton.

To reach our next stop, head back to Sunset Boulevard and drive south until you reach Copley Drive.

17. Elvis Presley (144 Monovale Drive)

Musician and Actor Elvis Presley. Image Source: Wikimedia via Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1957.

This was the last Beverly Hills property owned by The King.

This was the home of Lisa Marie Presley when she was born in 1968, and Elvis lived here with his family until 1973.

This house features a lot of windows that provide excellent views of Beverly Hills. In addition to the open floor plan, there is also a nice pool and spa in the backyard.

From here, simply drive north on Monovale Drive until it turns into Carolwood Drive.

18. Rod Stewart (91 Carolwood Drive)

Musician Rod Stewart. Image Source: Wikimedia user Rodstewartonair on July 10th, 1986.

Just north of the country club, you'll find this house on Carolwood Drive.

This is the former residence of famous musician Rod Stewart, who has won multiple awards for his work.

Stewart recorded his Great American Songbook albums at this residence, and he once stated that the song Stardust was the perfect theme for this house.

Keep driving north on Carolwood Drive to find our next destination.

19. Michael Jackson (100 Carolwood Drive)

Musician Michael Jackson. Image Source: Wikimedia user Casta03, 1992.

This is actually the last residence of Michael Jackson before his untimely death.

The house would eventually be sold for $18.1 million in 2012.

Our next location is even further north on Carolwood Drive.

20. Walt Disney (355 Carolwood Drive)

Animator and Filmmaker Walt Disney. Image Source: Wikimedia via New York World-Telegram and the Sun staff photographer: Fisher, Alan. 1938.

Further north on Carolwood Drive, you'll find one of the former residences of Walt Disney.

Although the original house no longer stands, there are signs of his influence all over the place, including a small train that became known as the Carolwood Pacific Railroad.

Originally purchased in 1949, the property would eventually be sold for $74 million in 2014 and transformed into the Kilgour Building.

Once you're done here, make your way back down to Sunset Boulevard. From there, turn onto Charing Cross Road.

21. Hugh Hefner (10236 Charing Cross Rd)

Hugh Hefner at Glamourcon 2010. Image Source: Wikimedia user Toglenn on November 13th, 2010.

When Hefner originally purchased the mansion in 1971, he got a pretty good deal for $1.05 million.

This historic building has since been sold to another party after being listed at $200 million.

Indicative of the legend behind this particular location, the rare zoo permit given exclusively to this property transferred hands to its new owner when it was sold.

Learn some fun facts about Hugh Hefner on our Hollywood Tour. Drive west until you find North Beverly Glen Boulevard and go north.

22. Steve Martin (1005 Beverly Glen Blvd)

Actor and Musician Steve Martin. Image Source: Wikimedia via David Shankbone on April 23rd, 2008.

This is just one of the houses owned by Steve Martin.

Although he began his career as a notable comedian in films such as The Jerk and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles , he has since spent most of his time playing the banjo.

As a musician, Martin has won a Grammy and even created his own award – The Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass.

After visiting this location, head south again and make your way back to Sunset. Once there, look for Bel-Air Road and drive north until you reach Copa de Oro Road.

23. Nicolas Cage (363 Copa de Oro Road)

Actor Nicolas Cage. Image Source: Wikimedia user nicolas genin on September 4th, 2009.

The next stop is the home of Nicolas Cage who is an American actor and film director known for The Rock, Con-Air, and more recently Pig.

Watch the 1983 film Valley Girl starring young Nicolas Cage after visiting L.A. for fun shots of Lala Land in the 80s.

Although Cage was the most recent owner of this estate, it was also previously owned by Dean Martin in the 1960s then sold to Sir Tom Jones in 1976.

The red-brick property was designed by Gerald Concord and is affectionately known as the "Pink Palace".

This residence is situated on one of the priciest streets in America called Copa de Oro Road (translates to Cup of Gold in Spanish).

The interior includes polished wood paneling, contributing to the 18th-century country house style that was originally intended by the architect.

Our next stop is right down the road.

24. Cary Grant (10615 Bellagio Road)

Actor Cary Grant. Image Source: Wikimedia user Crisco 1492 on March 5th, 2012.

Here you will find the former residence of Cary Grant, one of Hollywood's most famous stars of yesteryear.

Among other notable roles, Grant is perhaps best known as the leading man in films such as An Affair to Remember and North By Northwest .

Fun fact: his birth name was Archibald Alexander Leach.

When Paramount put him under contract, he was going to change his name to Cary Lockwood - but executives thought it sounded too long and settled on Grant.

Although it's not a particularly large or glitzy house, its proximity to the Bel-Air Country Club makes this a very desirable property.

Keep driving down Bellagio Road until you reach Carcassonne Road. Turn right and keep driving north until you get to Chalon Road. Turn left and drive west to Sarbonne Road.

Turn right here and drive north very shortly until you find Stradella Road on the left.

25. Clint Eastwood (846 Stradella Road)

Actor and Director Clint Eastwood. Image Source: Wikimedia user Georges Biard, 1993.

This property is owned by none other than Clint Eastwood.

His recent work includes directorial work on films such as Sully and American Sniper .

Clint owns both this estate and the one next door, giving him plenty of space to work with.

This residence was designed by architect Paul McClean and completed in 2014. It has 7 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Its last sale price was $39,000,000.

From here, it is recommended to stay on Stradella Road until you reach Roscomare Road. Turn left and drive south until you see Chalon Road once again. Keep driving south and turn onto Bellagio Road.

26. Alfred Hitchcock (10957 Bellagio Road)

Director Alfred Hitchcock. Image Source: Wikimedia user Dr. Macro on March 29th, 2011.

On the other side of the Bel-Air Country Club, you'll find the former house of beloved director Alfred Hitchcock, who worked on over 50 features in the span of 6 decades.

In addition to directing classic horror films like Psycho and The Birds , Hitchcock was also well known for suspenseful projects like Vertigo and Rear Window .

He was considered the "master of suspense" but also a known practical joker.

Hitchcock also perfected the art of the cameo. He is featured in 39 of his films!

Hitchcock bought this home for $40,000 in 1942 and lived at this residence until his death in 1980. His wife, Alma, died in 1982.

Bel Air/Holmby Hills

Bel Air is one of the more popular neighborhoods located on the Westside of Los Angeles in the foothills the Santa Monica Mountains. It measures just 6.371 miles in square mileage but packs quite a punch in terms of financial demographics .

Beyoncé & Jay Z are also residents of Bel-Air, having just purchased a hillside mansion for $88 million. It has bulletproof windows, four pools and a 15-car garage.

Everyone from singer Justin Timberlake to actress/dancer Julianne Hough and Jason Bateman has fallen in love with the area and called it home. Most recently, John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen sold one beautiful abode and purchased another. Even the swoon-worthy former One Directioner Harry Styles owns a place in the hills.

Celebrity Homes Los Angeles: Hollywood Hills

Hollywood Hills is tough to map because so many surrounding cities have limits that extend up into the hills, but us locals refer to “The Hollywood Hills” as anything north of Sunset Boulevard, from West Hollywood to Los Feliz.

Los Feliz is one of those low-key gold mines, especially its affluent Laughlin Park neighborhood. Living there are actress Rooney Mara, comedienne Kristen Wiig and most recently Angelina Jolie, who purchased Cecil B. DeMille’s two-acre estate to the tune of $24.5M. Mad Men actor John Hamm is also one of the many rich and famous to snatch up a deluxe crib in the neighborhood.

West Hollywood

According to Ranker , Mila Kunis, Johnny Depp, Katy Perry, Chris Brown, Kelly Osbourne, Russell Brand, Kylie Minogue, and Melissa McCarthy are all a few of the rich and famous to most recently call or have called this neighborhood home.

From West Hollywood to Brentwood, to Santa Monica and Calabasas, there are almost too many neighborhoods chock full of your favorite starlets to count.

Celebrity Homes Self Drive Options

For those of you who lean more towards the more DIY mantra, there few places where you can find a specific and detailed, reliable celebrity map Los Angeles .

Justin Timberlake bringing touring back: Forget Tomorrow tour makes May stop in L.A.

Justin Timberlake will embark on his Forget Tomorrow world tour in April and will swing by the L.A. area in May for one stop on the global outing.

The 10-time Grammy Award winner, who released his first solo song since 2018 on Thursday , will set out on the tour in conjunction with his upcoming album, “Everything I Thought It Was.” The RCA Records album drops March 15 and is the sixth studio album for the “SexyBack” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling” hitmaker.

Timberlake, 42, made the official tour announcement Thursday — the same day he released “Selfish” — during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” purposely “forgetting” to announce the 22-city trek during a bit with the host who is his longtime friend .

“Oh, yeah, I’m going on tour,” Timberlake quipped.

celebrity tour los angeles

The tour kicks off April 29 in Vancouver and heads south to Seattle on May 2 before stopping at the SAP Center at San Jose on May 6. Timberlake will play the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 10, then head back to California for a May 14 show at the Pechanga Arena San Diego and a May 17 show at the Kia Forum in Inglewood. After that, he makes his way to Phoenix and then out east. Barring an extension, the tour is set to wrap the U.S. leg at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. Additional dates including stops in Europe and the United Kingdom will be announced soon, concert producer Live Nation said Friday in a statement.

Justin Timberlake releases new song, ‘Selfish,’ for his first solo album since 2018

Justin Timberlake released ‘Selfish,’ his first solo song since 2018, on Thursday. The track is the first from his March album ‘Everything I Thought it Was.’

Jan. 25, 2024

“Fans can expect to hear songs from his forthcoming new album ‘Everything I Thought It Was,’ his latest single ‘Selfish’ out now, and everyone’s favorite hits,” Live Nation said. The tour is Timberlake’s first in five years. He wrapped his 13-month Man of the Woods tour in April 2019.

Tickets go on sale through Timberlake’s fan club Monday and Citi and Verizon presales begin Jan. 30. The general on-sale begins Feb. 2.

The former ‘NSync frontman and “Trolls” star told Fallon he worked four years on “Everything I Thought It Was” and wrote “almost 100 songs” before narrowing the track list down to 18. He worked on the album through the pandemic and the arrival of his second son , Phineas, with wife Jessica Biel. Unlike his previous music, Timberlake said he worked on the album in spurts that he described as “writing camps” with various songwriters. Earlier this week, he told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe that “it is my best work.”

Fallon volunteered his own “phenomenal” review of the upcoming album: “This is perfectly done. Everything you’ve done, the layers upon layers, the different tempos. It’s fun. It’s dancey. It’s ballad. There’s surprises on there. It’s good.”

And Timberlake told the host that he “can’t wait to perform it.” The musician gave fans an early listen to “Selfish” during a hometown show in Memphis, Tenn., last weekend and played a classroom instruments version (and a medley of his hits) with Fallon and the Roots on Thursday’s episode.

Before he launches the tour, the “Rock Your Body” and “My Love” singer will play a free show at Irving Plaza in New York City on Jan. 31. In his bit with Fallon, he said that they’re still putting together the set list for that show, so it’s unclear how much of his new music will make it in.

“The Mickey Mouse Club” alum’s return to the spotlight comes after he kept a relatively low profile last year, particularly amid bombshell revelations about his relationship with Britney Spears in the singer’s memoir, “The Woman in Me.” Spears’ loyal fans didn’t take kindly to the fact that Timberlake’s new song bore the same title as a track from her 2011 album, “Femme Fatale.” Naturally, they drove the 13-year-old song up the charts .

Spears’ “Selfish” entered the top 40 on the U.S. iTunes chart on Friday and, at one point, outpaced Timberlake’s “Selfish,” The Times has confirmed. As of press time, Spears notched the No. 2 position in the top 10 behind Tom MacDonald’s “Facts.” Timberlake’s “Selfish” was at No. 3.

Timberlake notably stepped out twice since Spears’ book’s October release: for the premiere of the animated movie “Trolls Band Together” in November and to headline the splashy opening of Fontainebleau Las Vegas last month.

Justin Timberlake means ‘no disrespect’ to Britney Spears in ‘Cry Me a River’ performance

Justin Timberlake performed ‘Cry Me a River’ at the opening of the Fontainebleau Las Vegas after Britney Spears gave her version of their breakup in her memoir.

Dec. 15, 2023

He and his former ‘NSync bandmates also made headlines in September after they reunited — albeit briefly — to present an award to millennial superfan Taylor Swift during the MTV VMAs. (Timberlake and Fallon also had plenty to say about Swift’s current beau and their pal/golf partner, Travis Kelce, during Thursday’s “Tonight Show.” )

Timberlake — a four-time Emmy Award winner — also is returning to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. The pop and R&B singer has hosted the sketch series five times and has frequently guest-starred, but this weekend he’ll return to Studio 8H as a musical guest. The episode will be hosted by “Madame Web” star Dakota Johnson, who co-starred with Timberlake in the 2010 film “The Social Network.”
