The famous Hearst Estate has finally sold. And when we say famous, we mean A-List famous. It was a honeymoon love nest for Jackie and Jack Kennedy, a star in the Godfather and The Bodyguard, and a big star in many popular movies.
The Price Is Right
The iconic Californian estate was listed two years ago for a staggering $135 million. Now, the asking price has lowered to $69.95 million, down from a previously chopped price of $125 million.
Talk about bang for you buck right! Gordon Kaufmann, known for designing such landmarks as the Hoover Dam, Greystone Mansion and the Hollywood Palladium, designed the salmon-colored showplace in 1926. Many modern renovations were made to the estate since then. The compound covers 3.5 acres — by far the largest piece of land currently on the market in Beverly Hills proper.
Inside The Hearst Estate
Inside this estate is jaw-dropping decor, many rooms, and stunning furniture creating the ultimate destination where vintage meets modern.
On the Heart Estate are nine bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, two guest apartments, a tennis pavilion and five-bedroom gatehouse, each set amidst terraces, lawns, waterfalls and an Olympic-size pool lit by vintage lamps. Enough space for over 1000 guests.
The Mediterranean mansion serves as a time capsule for Old Hollywood glitz and glamour. Spanning 29,000 square feet with 22-foot hand-painted ceilings! A two-story paneled library, two screening rooms and an Art Deco nightclub.
