George Santo Pietro sells Beverly Hills Post Office-area mansion


Real estate developer George Santo Pietro has sold a Beverly Hills Post Office-area mansion he built on spec for $23.5 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

The 24,595-square-foot Italian-style villa sits on more than 2 acres in gated Beverly Park. The nine-bedroom, 15-bathroom house features a two-story-high living room, a wine room and a theater. The master bedroom suite has two sitting rooms. The grounds include parking for 40 cars and a swimming pool.

Built in 2007, the sprawling mansion was originally listed at $50 million. It was reportedly leased to singer-songwriter Prince for $200,000 a month at one time.


Pietro is the ex-husband of “Wheel of Fortune” letter lighter Vanna White.

Mauricio Umansky of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, was the listing agent. Jeffrey Hyland and Chad Rogers of the same office represented the buyer, according to the MLS.
