As a struggling actor at the beginning of his career, James Dean found residence at Warner Bros. executive Hal B. Wallis’ Hollywood Hills home. Working as a handyman and staying in the guest suite, it was not long before he found his fame in Rebel Without a Cause. Now, the house is empty and up for sale.

Other than its popularity in the film industry the house itself boasts its own impressive features. With an asking price of just under $4 million USD, the 1927 authentic Spanish home is in an ideal location. Situated on a double lot overlooking the surrounding canyon its 4,000 square-foot interior, houses three suites and four bedrooms, all renovated for a contemporary finish. A large fireplace and exposed beams creates historic charm with a modern chef’s kitchen bringing the space into the 21st century.

Outside, stone walkways lead to a terrace and swimming pool embraced by the surrounding greenery.
