Beyoncés Black Is King's Beverly Hills mansion is on the market for $ 125 million


A Beverly Hills mansion with a rich Hollywood history and a recent cameo on Beyoncé's visual album Black Is King is currently on the market for a staggering $ 125 million.

Called The Beverly House, the stunning Spanish-style home has 18 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, a two-story wood-paneled library, and a 50,000 square meter ballroom, decorated with rustic tiles and full of natural light.

It sits on 3.5 acres that is adorned with a near Olympic heated pool, tennis court, 800 foot driveway, and beautifully manicured gardens.

Beyoncé fans will recognize the mansion from the recently released musical film Black Is King, in which the actress is hanging around with her husband Jay-Z throwing a party that you would be invited to.

Beverly House should look familiar to movie buffs, too, having starred in The Godfather with Marlon Brando in 1972 and The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in 1992.

Before the house was used in these films, John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis were guests on their honeymoon in 1953 and later became the headquarters of the JFK west coast presidential election.

Beverly House was built in 1927 by the famous British architect Gordon Kaufmann, best known for his work on the Hoover Dam.

The house was designed with so-called H-shaped architecture, a style that, according to Architectural Digest, is characterized by spacious open spaces, floor-to-ceiling arched windows, wide balconies and long colonnades.

The gardens were designed by renowned landscape architect Paul Thiene, who covered them with tall trees and lush shrubs for privacy and created a cascading waterfall that led to the pool.

Once owned by tycoon William Randolph Hearst and his mistress, actress Marion Davies, the property is now hailed as a symbol of Hollywood's golden age.

Despite its impressive history, current owners are struggling to find a buyer after it launched for $ 195 million in 2016.

It was re-listed for a slightly more reasonable $ 135 million in 2018 before being slashed again to $ 125 million by listing agents Santiago Arana and Mauricio Umansky of The Agency.

In the listing, the spaciousness of the mansion is considered the best attribute. It should be noted that the main entrance spans a staggering 82 feet and the formal living room has a 22 foot hand-painted vaulted ceiling.

The main upstairs hallway is more than 30 meters long and features a stunning 40 meters wide, nearly two meters high mural by Dennis Abbe.

The listing also notes that the house was expanded in the 1990s, making it even larger when it appeared in The Godfather.

The property should look familiar to movie buffs, as it starred in The Godfather with Marlon Brando (pictured) in 1972 and The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner (right) in 1992.

Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner are pictured in a scene from The Bodyguard (1992).

Some have speculated that the Beyoncé property may find a buyer who has already shown it off to several family members at Black Is King – including her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, and longtime friend and bandmate Kelly Rowland of Destiny & # 39; sign.

With enough space for up to 400 guests for a seated dinner and more than 1,000 for a standing soiree, the house would be the perfect place for Beyoncé to throw the kind of party that featured in their movie.

It's also in a great location, just three blocks from famous spots like Sunset Boulevard and the Beverly Hills Hotel.

But you don't have to worry about overzealous tourists trying to spot a celebrity in the house, as it's blocked by four wrought iron security gates.
