The Beverly House—Setting of The Godfather and JFK's Honeymoon—Is Up for Sale for $125 Million
Few properties personify the glamour of Beverly Hills like the Beverly House. The luxury estate has played host to celebrities, a president, and was even featured on the silver screen. Now, the Southern California mansion is hitting the market for $125 million, TopTenRealEstateDeals.com reports.
Originally built for banker Milton Getz in 1927, it didn't take long for the home to catch the eyes of celebrities. Legendary publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst moved there with actress Marion Davies in the 1940s. And on their honeymoon in 1953, Jackie and John F. Kennedy spent three nights on the property.
Its noteworthy residents aren't the house's only claims to fame. It boasts an impressive filmography, appearing in the 1992 film The Bodyguard and The Godfather's (1972) iconic horse-head-in-a-bed scene.
Even without its storied history, the house would still be worth a fortune. Constructed in a Mediterranean Revival-style, the H-shaped estate features 18 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces, two swimming pools, a spa, and a tile fountain. It's currently up for sale through The Agency for $125 million, which is $100 million less than its listing price when it hit the market in 2018. For home buyers willing to spend a fortune to live like Hollywood royalty, this may be their best chance.
