TV magnate Richard King and his interior designer wife, Lauren, took more than five years to complete their Holmby Hills estate.
A Holmby Hills estate once owned by Ziegfeld Follies headliner and radio star Fanny Brice
has come on the market at $65 million. The owners are Richard King,
a director of King World Productions, and his interior designer wife, Lauren.
Originally constructed in 1938, the mansion was rebuilt and expanded over more than five years. The 2-acre property also has a guesthouse, a swimming pool, a pool house/gym and a lighted tennis court. There are eight bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Brice owned the home from the year it was built until her death in 1951 at 59. She was played by Barbra Streisand
in the Broadway musical and 1968 film "Funny Girl."
King World, a television syndication company that is now part of CBS, brought "Our Gang" and Merv Griffin
's "Wheel of Fortune" to new generations of TV viewers.
The Kings bought the house in 2001 for $15 million, according to Times archives.
Loren Judd of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills North, is the listing agent.
