Lion statues stand sentry at the entrance of this elegant two-story mansion on more than an acre in Beverly Hills. At the back of the house another pair look out over an expansive pool area surrounded by lawn and hidden by tall hedges. Silver and gold leaf details and a dramatic two-story foyer topped by a skylight set a regal tone indoors.
