This is the newly built mega mansion of Michael Ovitz. Michael is an American talent agent who co-founded Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in 1975 and served as its chairman until 1995. Ovitz later served as President of the Walt Disney Company from October 1995 to January 1997.
The contemporary residence is located at 1269 Leona Drive in Beverly Hills, CA and is supposedly 30,000 square feet in size.
Ovitz’s mansion on Leona, which will be owned in the name of Ovitz’s North Enterprises Trust, will be built on the following four parcels of land at 1269 Leona Drive:
1) A 0.64-acre (27,878-square-foot) parcel that he purchased in 2000 for $2,185,000 (and which technically has the address of 1273 Leona Drive)
2) A 0.9-acre (39,200-square-foot) parcel that he purchased in 2001 for $5,775,000 (that once had the address of Benedict Canyon Drive)
3) A very long, flag-shaped 0.62-acre (27,007-square-foot) parcel off Benedict Canyon Drive that he also purchased in 2001 as part of that $5,775,000 deal (and that once had the address of 1234 Benedict Canyon Drive)
and 4) A 0.85-acre (37,026-square-foot) parcel that he also purchased in 2001 as part of that $5,775,000 deal (and a parcel that at one time — before Leona Drive was extended — had the address of 1234 Benedict Canyon Drive). In total, Ovitz’s compound on Leona Drive will total 3.01 acres
