This extraordinary property in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, which was once the home of late Paramount Pictures chairman and chief executive Brad Grey come to market with an astonishing, publicity generating $77.5 million price tag.
The custom-designed estate, still called the Grey Estate, sits on a two-plus-acre lot where singer Frank Sinatra once lived. Brad and his wife Cassandra purchased the property in late 2010 for $18.5 million.
Howard Bracken-designed home sits behind wood- and steel-framed gates and is surrounded by olive trees, orchards and gardens. The estate offers about 14,000-square-feet of living space with five bedrooms and eight full and four half bathrooms across two structures. An approximately 13,000-square foot main house has four en suite guest bedrooms located in a secluded wing of their own along with a master suite privately sequestered on the upper floor with his and her bathrooms and an over-the-treetops view of the Century City skyline.
A raised bridge connects the main house to a two-story recreation facility outfitted with two gyms, a cold plunge and a sauna with a blue-bottomed swimming pool.
At the heart of the home is a barn-inspired and vaulted-ceiling great room that holds an open kitchen and dining area. A sun room features walls of steel-framed windows, and the den holds an office and a wet bar. There’s also a home theater.
