Well known for its memorable movie scenes in The Godfather, where the uncooperative movie producer Jack Woltz woke up to a horse head in his bed, and the glamorous estate where Whitney Houston’s character lived in The Bodyguard, the mansion was a favorite of the Kennedy family where John and Jackie spent part of their honeymoon and later the West Coast presidential election headquarters for JFK’s 1960 presidential campaign.
Designed in 1927 by Gordon Kaufmann, the architect who did the Hoover Dam, Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles Times building and the Santa Anita Racetrack, Beverly House is the quintessential emblem of Hollywood’s Golden Era. The estate is well known for its H-form architecture characterized by long colonnades, wide balconies, arched floor-to-ceiling windows and its spaciousness. Current Asking Price $135,000,000
