Built in 1927, it’s one of California’s most prominent Mediterranean-style mansions. Over the decades, a number of big names have passed through the stately gates and traversed the 800-foot-long driveway. The mansion was built for local banker Milton Getzby by Gordon Kaufmann, and later owned by William Randolph Hearst and his lady love, Marion Davies.
It’s also a favored filming location. You may recognize it in “The Godfather” or Kevin Costner‘s “The Bodyguard.”
Sprawling over 3.5 acres, the grounds include colorfully tiled fountains, waterfalls, a lighted tennis court with its own bar and media room, and a swimming pool and pool house.
They can then stroll into an impressive, two-story library with handcarved woodwork and wraparound gallery.
There’s additional room for entertaining on the outdoor terrace, which can accommodate 400 guests for a sit-down meal. And there’s a commercial kitchen on the premises to prepare food for these guests.
An art deco–style nightclub, wine cellar, two projection rooms, and spa facilities with a gym and massage room complete the entertainment amenities.
When it’s time to retire to private quarters, there are double master suites as well as four guest suites. And yes, there are separate staff quarters, a guesthouse, and a gatehouse with a kitchen and four bedrooms.
The historic mansion has been owned for over four decades by attorney and businessman Leonard M. Ross. He’s the estate’s fourth owner and has restored and expanded the property, adding close to 20,000 square feet of interior space. The mansion has bounced on and off the market over the years, ranging in price from $115 million to $195 million in 2016.
The property is being co-listed by Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker, Aaron Kirman of Pacific Union, Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency.parties from around the web; as such, the operators of this website assume no liability or responsibility for any of the contents contained herein, or the contents of websites that we may link to.
