The homes of Hollywood stars often attract the attention of fans and the famous alike, and the recent resale of the late Angela Lansbury’s house is no exception. Powerful music executive and manager Brandon Silverstein and his wife, Julie, purchased the 3,700-square-foot mansion for $5 million, which was $500,000 over the asking price. The listing for the property was handled by Mick Partridge of The Beverly Hills Estates, who also represented the buyer, along with Maksym Khomin (formerly) of Coldwell Banker.

Built in the 1960s, Brandon Silverstein’s new home features a Spanish hacienda style with a modern twist, which underwent a series of renovations before Lansbury bought it in 1985. The Brentwood, California residence boasts modern conveniences and offers ample entertaining and family spaces in a mostly single-level structure. Key features of the mansion include a wood-paneled kitchen, a family room opening to a private terrace, and both the formal dining room and eat-in kitchen spaces.

Setting the home off are the curated grounds, including an English-style garden, greenhouse, and swimming pool. The half-acre property is made private by a gate and wall setup that reflects the home’s style.

Lansbury and her husband, actor Peter Shaw, purchased the home for $1 million in 1985, or approximately $2.5 million in today’s money, taking advantage of upgrades made by the previous owners. Lansbury continued to live in the home after Shaw’s passing in 2003, remaining there until her own death in October 2022 at the age of 96. Her career spanned over 80 years in the entertainment industry, with some of her most outstanding roles including the series “Murder, She Wrote” throughout the 1980s and 1990s and a vast portfolio of films under the MGM brand. She was an accomplished singer and performer and received six Tony Awards throughout her career. Lansbury also ran her own production company later in her career.

The home became a centerpiece in Lansbury’s later life, where she preferred to spend her time rather than going out to enjoy the nightlife available in the area. The estate’s grounds, which included gardens and al fresco dining and entertaining spaces surrounded by greenery, would have nurtured her interest in gardening. The home’s layout would also blend indoor and outdoor spaces, with most of the living space opening up to the gardens. While the home embodied Lansbury’s sense of ease and comfort with English cottage décor and furnishings, the family made the difficult decision after her passing to move on and sell the home, paving the way for future generations to enjoy its finery.

Brandon Silverstein’s acquisition of the Brentwood residence promises to continue its legacy as a home to those well-versed in the entertainment industry. As founder and CEO of S10 Entertainment, Silverstein has contributed to an array of film and music ventures. His efforts, in direct conjunction with the work done by the music publishing arm of Brandon Silverstein Publishing, have resulted in 20 global number-one hits and over 40 billion streams. Notable collaborations include the firm’s work with Drake, Bad Bunny, Beyonce, and Justin Bieber.

Silverstein, who works out of Los Angeles and New York City, will likely use the estate as a west coast retreat, taking advantage of the privacy and space it provides alongside a community with access to over 240 acres of park space. It may also be a welcome respite for the busy executive, whose work growing S10 Entertainment has led to success across management, publishing, labels, and investment spanning music, television, and film. Brandon Silverstein has also received several honors, including being named on Billboard’s “40 Under 40” and “Power 100” as well as Forbes’ “30 Under 30” lists.
