The French chateau-style house was built in 1926 by French immigrant Sylvester Dupuy, who designed the home to evoke the castles from his native country.

The 8,700-square-foot mansion sits behind walls and gates on a 2.5-acre knoll that gives it panoramic views of the San Gabriel Valley.

Outside, turrets give the exterior its castle-like vibe, and a top-level terrace takes in city light views. A fountain and four garages complete the grounds.

There are a paneled living room, two kitchens, two offices and a hair salon.
