Happy Birthday Elvis!
|Priscilla & Elvis Presley in Beverly Hills, 1967|
Today is Elvis Presley's 79th birthday. Happy Birthday to the King. In 1967 Elvis and Priscilla purchased a home in Beverly Hills. The address was 1174 North Hillcrest Road, Trousdale Estates. Hey! I was living down the block at the same time.....waaaaay down the block at Hillcrest Road and Carmelita. I didn't even know that Elvis lived in Trousdale at the time. Back then, Elvis wasn't exactly popular with my crowd. We were more interested in the Beatles and Rolling Stones. I always appreciated Elvis' musicality and performance style, but it wasn't until after he passed away that I truly realized his magic.
I've always admired those faboo mid-century modern and especially Regency style homes in beautiful Trousdale Estates!
