Bel-Air estate tied to late billionaire Jerrold Perenchio lists for $21.5 million

Another piece of Jerrold Perenchio’s vast real estate portfolio, a gated estate with views extending from the cityscape to the Pacific, has come on the market in Bel-Air for $21.5 million.

Not to be confused with Chartwell, the late billionaire’s neighboring and once primary residence, the corner-lot property sits on 1.27 acres of grounds that include a sprawling single-story house and a small vineyard.

The 7,942-square-foot home, designed by Allen Siple and built in 1951, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms and additional staff quarters that include a separate living room. A butler’s pantry and breakfast room adjoin the kitchen. The common rooms, which include a grand living room and a wood-paneled den, take in city and garden views.


Lawn, formal landscaping and a large motor court fill out the setting.

Perenchio, who died last year at 86, bought the property from the estate of Paquita Machris, the late philanthropist and big-game hunter, nearly a decade ago for $9.2 million.

Since the former chairman and chief executive of Univision’s death, Perenchio’s estate has listed and sold a number of properties including two homes and land in Malibu. His main residence, a 10.3-acre French neoclassical estate, is currently for sale at an undisclosed, nine-figure price.

In true “it takes a village” fashion, there are eight listing agents for the property: Drew Gitlin and Susan Gitlin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties; Drew Fenton, Gary Gold and Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland; and Joyce Rey, Jade Mills and Alexandra Allen of Coldwell Banker. | Twitter: @LATHotProperty
