Liongate in Bel-Air enters the battle of the L.A. mega-mansions

Joining this spring’s bumper crop of L.A.-area mega estates for sale is Liongate, entering the fray priced at $65 million.

Other Westside contenders include the $135-million Beverly House, Jamie McCourt’s $55-million home and Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s $50-million moated residence.

Although two lion statues still stand at one of the gates, the reworked 1938 mansion in Bel-Air has dropped the plural from its former Lionsgate name. Singer Kenny Rogers, who sold the estate in 1983 for $5.8 million, is credited with placing the lions outside the gate.

The Paul Williams-designed house has such updated features as three steam showers, an outdoor living room with heated floors, outdoor television, one-touch lighting, music and temperature controls and a climate-controlled wine room.


The living space includes a glass elevator that leads to a ballroom, three living rooms, a gym, a 3,600-square-foot master suite, seven fireplaces, a billiard room, a media room and a bar.

There will be a total of 11 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms once the guesthouse is built for about 24,000 square feet of interior space.

The 1.62 acres of grounds contain a tennis court with a viewing area and a swimming pool.


The property last changed hands in 2010 for $12.2 million.

Mia Trudeau of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is the listing agent.
