On Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles' September 1 episode, Josh Altman and Tracy Tutor teamed up to find a buyer for Seabright, formerly known as the Barrymore Estate, in Beverly Hills.  "It's a piece of Hollywood history that was built like 100 years ago," Josh explained during the episode. "This house has definitely seen some things over the years."

The 6,976-square-foot home was built in 1926 for late director King Vidor before late actor John Barrymore finished it in 1928. The current seller, actress Donna Scott, who previously lived in the home for 22 years with her late film director husband Tony Scott, noted the different monikers the home has had over the years. "We called it Seabright. It's the former Barrymore estate, some people refer to it as Bella Vista," she said. "But for us, it's Seabright."

While the home is grounded in history and still boasts many of its original features, Josh and Tracy noted it may not be the easiest house to sell. "There are a lot of cool elements of this property, the vintage feel is part of the charm," Josh said. "But there are also parts of this property that need to be updated."

"We essentially have a labyrinth on our hands," Tracy added of the home, which features multiple stories with several nooks and hidden spaces. "Right now there's just zero continuity. We want a buyer to be able to walk into the house, experience the architecture and the history but also feel like it can be lived in like a real home."

According to the episode, after listing the home for $16,995,000, Josh and Tracy temporarily took it off the market until "quarantine is lifted."

"This is the craziest thing I've ever seen," Josh said upon seeing the space, which is noticeably more modern than the rest of the house. "We just went from 1920 to 2000." 

Tracy, who noted during a tour that a former aviary had been turned into the living room for the downstairs apartment, added, "It's like a bunker with skylights."

Like much of the house, the space had unique history. "Marlon Brando lived there for a little bit, Candice Bergen lived there," Donna said. "Anthony Quinn crashed on the floor here a little bit, too."
