Hal Levitt Celebrity Homes in Los Angeles

Celebrities Who Own Hal Levitt HomesHave you ever heard of Harold “Hal” Levitt? You might be more familiar with the name if you’re a celebrity in the market for home in Southern California.

Levitt is best known for the celebrity mansions he designed which at times were homes to Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Walter Mirish, Lew Wasserman, Olivia Newton-John, Dean Martin, Debbie Reynolds, and Lionel Ritchie. He also designed many famous landmark commercial buildings including the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas and the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences Building in Los Angeles.

Levitt’s work is famous for his use of modern design philosophies which combine indoor and outdoor living spaces. Common attributes to his homes include floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors, indoor courtyards, and dramatically sized front doors which lead to a courtyard instead of the home itself.

Levitt earned a bachelor’s degree in graphic arts from Stanford University then went on to earn an architecture degree from the University of Southern California.

Michael C. Hall aka "Dexter"The latest Levitt home to hit the market is his former private residence, a home built in 1933 which, like many of his designs, features high ceilings and an open floor plan. Michael C. Hall, best known for his recent role as the serial killer “Dexter” on Showtime, has owned the home since 2008 when he purchased it for $1.75 million. Hall recently listed the home for sale for $1.995 million with The Agency, a luxury real estate brokerage firm in Los Angeles.

The 3,535-square-foot, four bedrooms, five bath home is located in the Outpost Estates in Hollywood Hills. Features include a downstairs gym, wrap-around patio space, and beautiful canyon views.
