The Force Is With George Lucas As He Drops $34 Million On Bel Air Mansion

By on June 23, 2017 in ArticlesBillionaire News

George Lucas chose Los Angeles for his billion-dollar Lucas Museum of Narrative Art and now he's also chosen a Los Angeles mansion to call home. Lucas paid $33.9 million for a Bel Air mansion known as Mi Patria. The house was sold in an off-market deal. The former owner is billionaire and former presidential candidate H. Ross Perot. Perot bought Mi Patria in 2013 for $18 million.

Mi Patria sits on .89 of an acre and was built in 1929. The 10,000 square foot Spanish villa has been renovated to billionaire standards and has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The property features a two story, stone walled entrance all with a sweeping staircase, formal living room with fancy Parquet de Versailles wood floors, and a formal dining room with French doors leading to a lush landscaped courtyard. The gourmet eat-in kitchen has a marble topped, double wide island and a fireplace. The home also has a library that has been converted to a 35mm screening room. The master suite has two bathrooms and walk in closets.

The backyard showcases lush tropical gardens, tiled fountains, a putting green, and a pool with cabana and fireplace. There is an apartment located above the two-car garage at the back of the property. Among George Lucas' new neighbors are former Yahoo chairman Terry Semel, former Walt Disney chairman and CEO Michael Eisner, and A&M Records co-founder Jerry Moss.

Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson, own a number of high profile, expensive properties including the 4,700 acre Skywalker Ranch in northern California, a 15,000 square foot mansion in San Anselmo, California, a 1.7 acre oceanfront estate in Carpenteria, California, and a 65th floor condo in a Chicago high rise. George Lucas has a net worth of $5.1 billion.
