$350M Bel Air estate is the nation’s most expensive listing


Iconic Bel Air Estate is introduced to the market for the first time in 30 years for $350 Million. The 10-acre Chartwell Estate comes with a ballroom, a world-class wine cellar, a formal salon, a period- paneled dining room, a tennis court, swimming pool, and covered parking for 40 cars.

Built in 1933 by architect Sumner Spaulding, the residence was enhanced and restored under the direction of the recently deceased owner, A. Jerrold Perenchio, after he purchased the estate in 1986. Mr. Perenchio engaged renowned designer Henri Samuel, known for his work on estates owned by the Vanderbilts, Rothschilds and Valentino, to redesign Chartwell. Over the subsequent 30 years’ adjacent properties were acquired to expand the estate, including a Wallace Neff guest house and a long private driveway. Inspired by 18th Century French Neoclassical design, the main residence is approximately 25,000 sq. ft. in
size and poised for entertaining in grand style. Features include exquisitely detailed limestone facade.

“The Hollywood mogul, who reportedly represented the likes of Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor, died of lung cancer in May. He bought the initial site in 1986
and then expanded the site over 30 years by acquiring additional adjacent properties,” said therealdeal.

The  luxurious mega property is listed by Jeff Hyland, Drew Fenton and Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland; Joyce Rey, Jade Mills and Alexandra Allen of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury; and Drew Gitlin and Susan Gitlin of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.
