Greystone Mansion Hollywood
Greystone Mansion is located in Hollywood California. The mansion is one of many huge estates in the area and at one time was owned by oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny. The City of Beverly Hills purchased the estate in 1965, in 1971 the property became a city park, and in 1976 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The house and grounds are often used in film and television. The house's descending staircase is one of the most famous sets in Hollywood.
Greystone is now a public park, and is also used as a location for special events. The estate is popular as a filming location due to its beauty, manicured grounds and Beverly Hills location. Some productions contribute to the upkeep and renovation of the mansion. Greystone Mansion is also the location of 'The Annual Hollywood Ball' where hundreds of celebrities gather each year for a grand fashion show, dinner and auction to raise money for the Pure Foundation, helping children in need around the globe. The million dollar gathering also includes live performances by leading artists.
