    Seems like a beautiful home. I think it’d be hilarious to be able to look down at the Beckham’s – HAHA peasants! Gorgeous inside and out, very little I would change.

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s this house sat empty for years, more or less abandoned. It was possible to look through the gates and see some of the front, and it was in sad shape. I was really afraid that it would eventually be torn down. I’m glad that it was restored, and it’s gorgeous. I don’t understand the desk and computer in “his” bathroom, and I’d hide some of the exposed TVs, but otherwise I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s too bad that the listing didn’t show the view, which is amazing.

    What an estate! It’s remarkable how far this home has come. From almost disappearing into obscurity, to now featuring prominantly again.

    These pictures are missing a few epic angles of the property, but oh well.

    Aerial shots and a few pictures of the epic views from the grounds would be amazing.

    Amazing place. I wouldn’t change a thinge. Finally a true mansion that’s not trying to be a pimp’s paradise. Looks like a great place to live; it just looks like a easy going home.
    Price is obviously staggeringly high, but that’s just the zipcode talking…

    Pictures of the views would be great indeed, because this area really has some amazing views that a dutchman like me doesn’t really know about. It’s all flat and pretty boring nature here sadly, no epic mountains or great deserts…

      There is one picture of the skyline when you click the link, but it’s a daytime shot. I’m going to assume a nighttime shot would be much more breathtaking.

    Nice to see a classic, restrained and tasteful estate property in Beverly Hills instead of the all too common overscaled, poorly designed psuedo-chateau’s that get built there of late. Super property.

    Weird that no one has mentioned that this house is right above David and Victoria Beckham’s San Ysidro Dr mansion…….as in you can look down into the Beckham’s estate.

    We toured the estate on Saturday with 2 Realtors, and you can actually see right into the Beckham’s parking lot.

    Just FYI
