Buyers on the lookout for a home with a bit of Hollywood glamour have the opportunity of a lifetime, with the famous Byrdview estate in Southern California hitting the market.

Once home to legendary singer Frank Sinatra and used as a set during the production of Mad Men, Dreamgirls and Californication, the property is one of the finest in the region and will set you back $US12.5 million (around $AU17.528 million).

American architect William Pereira built the home at No. 9361 Farralone Ave, Chatsworth in 1949, with Sinatra living there for around a decade.

The property was also reportedly the home of Marilyn Monroe, who resided in the guesthouse for a period of time.

The grand home is extraordinary in every aspect, with 16-foot high ceilings, seven bedrooms and wood panelled walls.

There are 360 degree views of the entire valley and mountain ranges surrounding it, with glass all around the building.

On around 2.83 hectares of land, there is parking for over 100 cars throughout the whole property, with agricultural zoning allowing for a vineyard.

It is listed with Craig Knizek and Barrie Livingstone of The Agency.

There is also a pool and a long driveway to ensure privacy.

It isn’t the only property with a connection to Mr Sinatra on the market, with his Malibu beach house also up for sale.
