Designed in 1930 by legendary Hollywood art director Cedric Gibbons as a love-nest for himself and his then-wife, del Rio, the Art Deco-style property in Santa Monica features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, an office, a gym, a lighted tennis court, and separate staff/guest quarters. A virtual tour can be found here, and some vintage glamour shots of the house can be found at style blog Poetic Home. At the time of the listing, a commenter pointed out that producer Joe Roth owned the place; Property Shark concurs.

Here’s a sexy tidbit about the house viaTheDaily Mirror: “Gibbons and Del Rio possessed their own bedrooms on separate floors, but a secret staircase led from one dressing room to the other, and Del Rio’s dressing room also featured a trap door that opened to the stairs.”

Say, does anyone know where to find a stadium-sized engagement ring? Because we’d like to ask this house to marry us.
