If you're in the market for a Beverly Hills mansion and also in the mood to break a local real estate record, the Wall Street Journal reports that a recent listing might be of interest to you. It's the home of sports and entertainment executive Casey Wasserman, who is listing the recently completed house for $125 million — at that price, its sale would make it the most expensive private property ever purchased in Los Angeles.
Wasserman is the grandson of famous "Hollywood mega-agent" Lew Wasserman, and the property he's selling once belonged to Lew and wife Edie Wasserman, philanthropist and Casey's grandmother. But interestingly, those two are far from the biggest Hollywood names to have once owned part of the more than three acres of land that make up the property: That would be Frank Sinatra, who owned the house next door. Franks estate sold his house to the Wasserman family in 2004 for $6.5 million. After his grandmother passed away in 2011, Wasserman demolished their old home and used both parcels to build a "megamansion" that came to be known as the Foothill Estate after it was completed in 2016.
It's this megamansion that's listed for $125 million, and across its 18,548 square feet and two levels it boasts a 1,148-square-foot gym, a private home theater, and an art studio, as well as residential "staff quarters," a four car garage, and a total of five bedrooms.
Then there's the entertainment deck, with an 85-foot infinity swimming pool, pool house, and outside dining area. The entire Foothill Estate is engineered with various environmentally friendly elements, most notably a geothermal heating system. But why read when you can see the property for yourself in the real estate video below:
Should the property sell for any more than $110 million, that will be enough to exceed the price paid for Hard Rock Cafe founder Peter Morton's mansion in Malibu earlier this year, currently the holder of the record for most expensive LA area property.
