The Beverly Hills residence, renovated a decade ago, includes a contemporary-style house and a detached guesthouse that combine to offer five bedrooms and nine bathrooms in 7,300 square feet of interior space.
Among the features are walls of glass, a media room with a wet bar, a wine cellar and an elevator. The master suite boasts a separate sitting room, a study and a gym.
A tennis court, a swimming pool and formal gardens are within grounds of more than an acre. A gated motor court with parking for as many as 25 vehicles sits off the entrance to the home.
