John Barrymore’s Former Beverly Hills Estate Relisted For $29.95 Million

John Barrymore's Former Beverly Hills Estate Relisted For $29.95 Million

Bella Vista, the longtime home of late Hollywood actor John Barrymore is returning to market for $29.95 million. The multiwinged Spanish-Mediterranean villa was acquired in 1927 by silver screen icon John Barrymore (Drew Barrymore’s grandpappy), who quickly added several adjacent acres including an aviary where he kept a pet vulture. The quirky, village-like compound had been owned since the 1990s by “Top Gun” director Tony Scott, who died in 2012 at age 68. His widow, Donna, first listed the Beverly Hills home and several nearby vacant parcels in September 2015 with Westside Estate Agency for $42.5 million, then took it off the market in December. The house – but not the vacant parcels – is now returning to market with David Kramer of Hilton & Hyland.

The 10,000 square feet estate includes five-bedrooms, two guesthouses, an octagonal living room, a study plus a fully paneled library, a Bavarian-inspired pub with lovely redwood tree-trunk floor, and, above the master bedroom, a space that in Barrymore’s day was an opium den.
The outdoor grounds compliment the gracious style of the interior with winding paths, gates, fountains, a pool with waterfalls, and beautiful established gardens with lush foliage.
Scott added a four-car underground garage to the estate for his vintage motorcycle and Porsche collection.
