Original photograph of Marion Davies Santa Monica beach house in 1929. It had 34 bedrooms, 55 bathrooms and 3 separate guest houses, as well as a tennis court and swimming pool. After Marion sold it in 1947, it was a hotel called Oceanhouse. In 1956, it became the Sand and Sea Beach Club. The house was badly damaged in an earthquake in the 1990’s and it soon fell into severe disrepair. The majority of the property had to be torn down, leaving only one guest house and the original pool.
