As a starving artist eking out an existence in the early days of Hollywood, entertainer Danny Thomas made an oath to St. Jude Thaddeus, patron saint of hopeless causes: If he ever attained success, he would use his influence to help others. And after starring in a string of shows in the 1950s and ’60s—most notably Make Room for Daddy, which later became The Danny Thomas Show—he fulfilled his promise by founding St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a haven of hope for youngsters with life-threatening illnesses. Now, the late entertainer and philanthropist’s own sanctuary, the regal Danny Thomas Estate in Beverly Hills, Calif., is on the market for $135 million.

The 18,000-square foot home, equipped with 7 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, is situated on a 2.5-acre gated lot. An assortment of decadent details—such as gold-leaf crown moldings, hand-woven carpets, and European accent pieces—adorn the Italian-style villa. Old-world fireplaces, painted murals, and antique-looking chandeliers add further allure. A dining rotunda complete with a painted ceiling, a massive chandelier, and large windows provides stunning views of the Los Angeles skyline. And the ornate bathrooms showcase pillared porticoes, latticed windows, double sinks, and vanities.

Outside, a second story patio provides a perfect space for entertaining guests or just watching the sunset, while the backyard’s giant swimming pool and adjacent hot tub provide outdoor relief during the summer. (aaronkirman.com)
