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.
