The Beverly House is back on the market for $135 million, the highest-priced residence for sale in California, according to its listing agency.
The Beverly Hills compound, which sits on about 6 acres atop a private knoll three blocks from Sunset Boulevard, has been up for sale several times since 2007, when it was offered for $165 million.
Beverly House, built by local banker Milton Getz in the 1920s, was the onetime residence of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies. Adding more glitter to the pedigree, the Beverly Hills manse served as a honeymoon spot for Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy.
The Beverly Hills property features 5 buildings, 28 bedrooms, 36 bathrooms, wine cellar, gym, 8 car garage and staff accommodations.
It also features a lighted tennis court, media center, art deco nightclub, massage room, two screening rooms and an outdoor terrace that can accommodate 400 friends for dinner.
The owner, attorney Leonard Ross, decided to relist the property after Fleur de Lys, a Holmby Hills mansion, sold for $102 million in cash.
The storied manor has appeared in films, including ”The Godfather” with its widely remembered scene depicting a bloody horse head that ends up in a film producer’s bed.
