The home where Beverly Hills Cop was filmed in Los Angeles has hit the market for $29.95 million. The Mediterranean-style estate features 12 bedrooms in 14,000 square feet and is situated on a sprawling 3.3 acres of land.
Originally conceived in 1932, the enormous home is located in Santa Monica Canyon behind tall gates. The main residence features eight bedrooms, but there is also a two-bedroom guesthouse and a two-bedroom gatehouse.
Past the wrought-iron gates is a driveway that brings you past the gatehouse and through the lush gardens past the property’s resort-style pool and cabana. According to the listing from The Agency, the home’s Old World Mediterranean residence features a grand staircase under an arched entry colonnade.
Inside the home there is a entry hall, elegant public rooms, art deco tiles, ironwork and millwork, inlaid floors and hand-painted ceilings. There is a curving staircase that leads up to the second floor and a barrel vaulted hallway for “a dramatic approach to the exquisite living room,” which includes a baronial beamed ceiling and a stone mantel. There is also a sunroom adjacent to the living room, a library with paneled walls and a carved stone mantel, and a hidden prohibition-era wet bar. The dining room is at the opposite side of the entryway, and there is a bright breakfast room next to the “whimsical St. Charles-style kitchen,” which has access to two staff rooms. The family room features triple Palladian French doors and terraces. There is a nearby bedroom and deco-tiled bath, which can be used as a guest room or office.
Upstairs, there is a very large master bedroom with great views, a carved marble fireplace, two baths (one with a spa), a gym/yoga/massage area, an oversized walk-in closet and separate dressing room or office. Four additional bedrooms are located on the second floor and each one has a large closet and bathroom.
The guesthouse has two bedrooms, a pavilion-like sitting room with a fireplace, bathroom and kitchenette.
The property’s grounds include a 72-foot long pool, a rose garden, lily ponds and pools, a running brook, lawns, and play areas.
According to Curbed, the home is being sold following the recent divorce of the owners, author Victoria Foyt and film directior Henry Jaglom.
