The Harvey Mudd estate, designed by noted architect Elmer Grey in 1922, is for sale in the 90210 ZIP Code at $22.995 million.
Sited on an acre with a swimming pool, an aviary and gardens, the English country estate has nearly 11,000 square feet of living space in the main house and guest studio. Features include a two-story entry with hand-carved wood detailing, a conservatory and a wine cellar with a tasting room. There are seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two powder rooms.
The estate has been owned by magnates, philanthropists and other notables:
The seller, developer Brendan Deschamps, spent the last three years and millions of dollars renovating and expanding the estate to nearly double its original 6,000 square feet. The property previously sold in 2010 for $6.25 million.
Deschamps bought Elton John's Sierra Towers condos in West Hollywood in the fall for $4.65 million.
Greg Yeardye and Paul Czako of Gussman Czako Estates are the listing agents.
