Built in 1927, Lake Arrowhead’s “Hilltop” has been looking for a buyer for a decade. The 16,770 square foot Lake Arrowhead mansion was built in 1927 for Jules Stein, co-founder of Music Corporation of America (MCA), who hosted guests such as Cary Grant, Rock Hudson and Marilyn Monroe. Forbes reported in 2013 that the current owners commissioned a noted architect to restore the home in 2000, preserving more than 90 percent of the original construction. Marilyn Monroe’s personal bungalow, known as “The Happy Hut”, reportedly still stands on the property. There is a great room, conservatory, study, 10 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, caretaker’s quarters, a dock house, car-collector’s showroom and a one-of-a-kind children’s bunk room with suspended sailboat beds! The grounds span 3.12 acres with a tennis court, wonderful gardens and a large garden trellis. The property has also been featured in numerous films and television shows including HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms. Hilltop is on the market for $8.9 million with Gary Doss.
