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.

"Movie Stars Homes on Beach at Santa Monica." Date unknown, but the large white building at the bottom of the picture is Marion Davies' Santa Monica Beach House, which was a Hollywood hangout throughout the 1930s.  Bizarre Los Angeles.
