When the Hollywood Freeway took Tom Lyle Williams, beloved Villa Valentino, in the Hollywood Hills, he bought this private estate,  (second to top of the hill in Bel Air,) in 1950.  His friend, Arnold Anderson's brother was the Architect who built this ultra modern steel and glass home with sweeping 180 degree views of Los Angeles. The view was even more spectacular at night with all the twinkling lights of the city.Today this property is owned by the Movie Star, Jennifer Aniston.

This property is the backdrop for many of the stories I write about in my book, The Maybelline Story.  Purchase a signed copy from me today, by just clicking on the picture of my book. 

Thank you to my cousin's Ann Louise Williams Corbett and Andrew Westhouse for sharing these wonderful pictures.

My Publicist Shannon Donnelly at LCO, will be sending Jennifer Aniston a copy of The Maybelline Story, with a personal note from me enclosed.
