    Filled cover-to-cover with beautiful, vivid photographs, Trousdale Estates is the definitive history of the architecture and design that defined both Beverly Hills and the ultimate American Dream.

    Trousdale Estates is a 410-acre enclave of large, luxurious homes in Beverly Hills, California. Primarily developed in the 1950s and ’60s, it quickly became famous for its concentration of celebrity residents and the unrestrained extravagance of its mid-century modern architecture. Often working with unlimited budgets, these designers created sprawling, elegant backdrops for the ultimate expression of the American Dream in the mid-to-late 20th Century. In Trousdale, Price explores the architectural backgrounds, details, and floor plans of the amazing homes, giving readers a inside view of the world-famous Beverly Hills style. Lavish new photography is interspersed with archival and historic images, illustrating the glamour of Trousdale both then and now.

    Some of the architects of Trousdale include Lloyd Wright, Wallace Neff, Paul R. Williams, Harold Levitt, and A. Quincy Jones.
