Be a Rebel Without a Cause and Buy James Dean’s Old Hollywood Hills Digs

The Agency

Forget about saving for retirement, move to Los Angeles, and move into the old room occupied by cult ’50s actor James Dean.

Dean’s restored and reimagined 1920s Spanish-style home is up for sale with The Agency for just shy of $4 million. Sure, the 6225 Quebec Dr. address may not be recognizable on its own, but the name on its proverbial mailbox is etched into the history of U.S. pop culture. How could you not buy it?

During his acting career, James Dean captured the angst of America’s youth in Rebel Without a Cause and, after starring in only three motion pictures, died driving his Porsche 550 Spyder from L.A. to Salinas.

It was in the 6225 Quebec Dr. house where Dean was cast in his iconic role as teenager Jim Stark from Rebel. According to Mansion Global, Dean was staying in the guest bedroom as a courtesy of Warner Brothers producer Hal B. Wallis when he got the call. One of the three (yes, three) master suites in this house was formerly Dean’s old brooding (and sleeping) grounds.

It might sound surprising that this $3,995,000 home has only three bedrooms and four baths. Again, each bedroom is a master suite and the price tag accounts for the home’s spectacular and envied location in the star-studded Hollywood Hills. The home also sits on a huge and nearly unheard-of double lot that spans 11,600 square feet.

The house itself is 4,000 square feet with an elegant living room and fireplace, rustic exposed beams, and large picture windows that overlook the lush grounds. Carrara marble countertops and Viking appliances will allow you to bake all the angsty cakes and drink all the angsty milk you want (points for readers who got that reference).

The master bedroom packs dual walk-in closets, so go ahead and buy that third red jacket. Outside, a stone walkway meanders through a grassy terrace backyard with al fresco dining and a walled courtyard. Of course, there’s an oversized pool and spa, but this one is full, unlike the abandoned mansion.

If you don’t drop your life and buy the house, we’re going to. In the words of Jim Stark, “Are you going to stop me from going?”
