The Doheny estate in Bel-Air has come on the market at $43 million, placing it within the Top 10 most expensive homes in Los Angeles County currently on the Multiple Listing Service.
Encompassing more than 3.5 acres, the gated estate takes its name from descendants of oil baron Edward L. Doheny, who successfully drilled the first well in Los Angeles in the late 1800s and sparked a boom.
The 10,000-square-foot mansion was home to the late William H. Doheny Sr. and his wife, Onnalee.
The Hollywood Regency-style house, built by the couple in 1963, features a formal entry, a great room, a formal dining room, a family room with a fireplace, a bar, a billiard room, a card room, a den/office, eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Views take in the cityscape and extend to the ocean.
Brick decking surrounds the outdoor swimming pool. There’s on-site parking for 20 cars.
Among the neighbors is former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
Rick Hilton, Judy Feder, Jeff Hyland, Mich Rogers and Tyrone McKillen of Hilton & Hyland/ Christie’s International Real Estate are the listing agents.
