She bought the home a decade ago with her then-husband Frank McCourt for close to its $25-million asking price, according to Times archives. Now her interests are taking her farther north. She bought a 22-acre vineyard estate in Napa in the fall for $11.25 million.
Designed for grand-scale entertaining, the compound Jamie McCourt sold was built in 1931 and sits on 2.6 acres behind gates at the end of a several-hundred-foot-long driveway.
The contemporary European-style villa features a step-down living room, a commercial kitchen, an art studio, an atrium, a bar, a billiard room, a home theater, a library/study, a dance studio and a wine cellar. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 20,637 square feet of living space.
Besides the main house are a guesthouse, a staff apartment and a pool house. The indoor swimming pool has a spa as well as steam and massage rooms.
The estate is near the Playboy Mansion.
