Greystone Mansion, also known as the Doheny Mansion, is a Tudor Revival mansion in Beverly Hills. It sits on a landscaped estate with distinctive formal English gardens. Construction was completed in 1928. At the time it was built, it cost over $4 million and was the most expensive home built in California up to that time.

The property became a city park in 1971 and was subsequently added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The house and grounds are often used in filmmaking and television production. The house's descending staircase is one of the most famous sets in Hollywood.

Productions filmed at the mansion include "The Prestige," "The Puppet Masters," "Spider-Man," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Witches of Eastwick," "X-Men," "The Big Lebowski," "Death Becomes Her," "Eraserhead," "Ghostbusters II," and "National Treasure: Book of Secrets."
