927 North Rexford Drive is a single family home in the city of Beverly Hills, California . It was built in 1923 - inspired by the French country house style - according to plans by the architect Elmer Gray and later rebuilt by Ted Grenzbach . The living area of the house is 511 m², the property is 1500 m².
The home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The main entrance leads to an open floor plan that connects family, dining and living areas. All rooms lead onto a large terrace with a fountain and pool. There is also a two-story guest house. The original bar of the gangster Bugsy Siegel was built into the house . The bathroom was lined with wallpaper designed by Don Loper from the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel .
In 1968 the singer Al Martino bought the property with the income from his international hit Spanish Eyes and lived there with his third wife Judi and their children. After his death in October 2009, Judi Martino lived in the house alone. Because it was too big for them alone, it sold for $ 7,800,000 in February 2016.
