A Beverly Hills residence that once belonged to William Randolph Hearst and where scenes of the legendary movie “The Godfather” were shot, is definitely something you can’t refuse.
The historic Beverly House hits the market for a stunning $135,000,000. The highest-priced residence for sale in California, according to its listing agency, was built by local banker Milton Getz in the 1920s. The Beverly House was featured in the movies “The Godfather” and “The Bodyguard”, and served as a honeymoon spot for Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy.
The expansive residence sits on 3.7 acres in Beverly Hills, on about 6 acres atop a private knoll three blocks from Sunset Boulevard. The H-shaped residence is a perfect combination of Spanish and Italian style, with French doors, balconies, arched ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlook the famous cascading waterfalls to the pool and the Venetian columns beyond the pool house, intricately carved ceilings and paneled walls.
The Beverly Hills property features 5 buildings, 28 bedrooms, 36 bathrooms, gym, guest house above eight car garage, separate security cottage, lighted tennis court with indoor bar and media center, massage room, billiard room with a carved stone fireplace from San Simeon, an outdoor terrace that can accommodate 400 friends for dinner. A garden level contains an art-deco night club, wine cellar, and one of two projection rooms in the residence.
The owner, attorney Leonard Ross, decided to relist the property after Fleur de Lys, a Holmby Hills mansion, sold for $102 million in cash.
