This was fun to look at! The Beverly House was built in 1926 in the heart of Beverly Hills in California. Located on over three acres.

Nineteen bedrooms, twenty-nine bathrooms, and 20,570 square feet. $135,000,000 🙂

From the Zillow listing:


“The Beverly House” Gordon Kaufmann, 1927. By far the most important and iconic Mediterranean Estate in California. A collectable in every sense. Over 3.5 acres in the heart of Beverly Hills. Complete privacy surrounded by manicured grounds, past beautiful wrought iron gates one approaches the main residence by sweeping 800ft driveway. Vast motor court centered by tile fountain sets the stage. Period details abound including a 2-story wood paneled library, coved ballroom, billiard room and tiled formal dining room. Once home to William Randolph Hearst and honeymoon location for John F. Kennedy. A rare offering for a collector of the finest architecture.
