Australian entrepreneur and film producer Andrew Banks, who appears on the television series “Shark Tank Australia,” is looking to hook a buyer for his estate in Beverly Hills. He’s put the 10,522-square-foot home on the market for $17.495 million, or nearly twice what he paid for the property four years ago: $9.18 million.

Sitting on about half an acre of manicured grounds, the remodeled European-style mansion centers on a dramatic foyer off the front entrance. Two curving staircases sit on either side of the two-story entry, while natural light is filtered through clerestories and a modern chandelier.

Further inside, grand formal rooms include an elegant dining room with built-ins and arched French doors, a family room and a music room with a wet bar. The living room catches the eye with blue-hued walls and a gold-tinted ceiling.


An office, a gym/yoga studio, a theater, an elevator, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms complete the floor plan. The master suite, with a sauna, one of four fireplaces and a private terrace, takes in city light views.

Outdoors, tall privacy hedges shade a swimming pool and spa, a pool house with a sauna and an outdoor kitchen. A guest house sits at the rear of the grounds, and a motor court fronts the double-gated property.

James Harris, David Parnes and Marisa San Antonio, all with the Agency, hold the listing.

Banks has appeared on “Shark Tank Australia” as a panelist since last year. He previously co-founded the recruitment company Morgan & Banks and the human resources company Talent2 International.


He founded the production company Lila 9th Productions last year.
