    This is pretty amazing overall, needs some updating and what would probably be a pretty moderate renovation, but has great bones to work with. I’d say this is probably one of the most realistically priced homes we’ve seen at this part of the market in a while. I’d bet it sells quickly and very close to asking.

    What really messes with me is that Mark Suckerberg can buy all of the houses you’ve ever posted on this site ALL AT ONCE.

    I think it’s quite nice. It’s generally tasteful and definitely subtle. It’s not nearly as stylish as I had expected, but maybe Monsieur Marciano has already taken all of his personal belongings, the really interesting stuff anyway, and moved houses.

      I think so too as the kitchen set is different in photo #s 7 & 8.

    It’s a beautiful home but something is missing from the front. Maybe it needs some more landscaping or even some ivy. Interior seems to have lost its 1920s charm/pizzazz. Looks like it was last remodeled in the early 90s. Stunning pool and site layout though.

      Yeah I noticed the same thing about the front, it needs less driveway and more landscaping or grass. I find this is often the problem with these homes in Beverly hills and bel air set so close to the road, they have only driveway and a row of shrubs. So the front ends up looking barren. I hadnt thought about ivy, but now that you mentioned it I think it could be another way of making the front less barren. But only if the ivy is kept impeccably trimmed. All too often people just let the ivy run rampant and suddenly it covers every inch of the facade.

        I agree. I like it when the ivy is kept in the lines of the walls and doesn’t encroach on the soffits or over the stonework. Here’s an example that I think is just as the border between manicured and a wee bit overboard…but I still love it

    I love it, a stunning home at a very reasonable price for such a historic property. I do agree that the exterior is quite bland, and some ivy growing on it would take the Spanish look and make it look even grander. This is by far one of the better mansions in Beverly Hills I’ve seen, luxurious and grand without taking it too far. A truly splendid home, the buyer will be lucky.

    This is what a lot of Mediterranean style homes aspire to be. Just needs a little updating and it would be back to all its former glory.

      Agreed, Mediterraneans built nowadays (or at least most of them) seem to have lost the art of subtlety. If you do it right, it shouldn’t look like you’re trying at all.

    I’m not feeling the love this house is getting. At the very least, it’s bland and underwhelming.

    The only thing that comes to mind about the interior is that the house and Betty White needs to go ahead and pass so they can continue filming Golden Girls into perpituity.

    If you close your eyes you can imagine the wicker furniture and the faint ramblings of horny septuagenarians! LOL!!

      Sorry guys but I’m with Rocco on this one. I’m not feeling it either.

      I totally agree that 95% of Mediterraneans (especially those built in the last 20 years) definitely need to learn from this home’s subtlety. But this house looks like a Motel 6 from the outside and Golden Girls is not much of an exaggeration of the interior. Subtlety has given way BORING. “History” has lead to OUTDATED. This home is in need of a MAJOR update, but not to loose what’s left of its 1920’s charm. Someone needs to find a way to bring it back to its glory days and finally welcome it to the 21st century. I’m not sure of this house’s potential because it’s so buried, but it’s possible.

      The price literally makes me angry. No thanks. In my book, you’ll be lucky to get a quarter of that. It’s going to take millions to update and I’m not willing to risk taking a loss. Maybe Betty White has that kind of loose change.

    The fountain is hideous and tacky, and the whole front yard is in need of a landscaping makeover. I do like the interior though.
