Billionaire Alec Gores Takes $70M for Palatial Beverly Hills Mansion

Published: April 2, 2022 | By: American Luxury Staff

The Beverly Park Estate, one of the largest and most lavish properties in Los Angeles, changed hands recently after being listed at $95 million; the final price came to $70 million. The seller was investor Alec Gores, an alchemist billionaire businessman with an eye for buying troubled companies and converting them into gold.

The property, which spans 2.19 acres in arguably the most exclusive neighborhood west of Westchester County, New York, is anchored by a 31,335 sq. ft. French Normandy-style mansion containing 11 bedrooms and 21 baths. The house was completed in 2007, and designed by Los Angeles mansion maker Richard Landry. Carefully engineered to replicate a prewar living style, its living spaces accumulate into a balancing act that reconciles contemporary expectations with period fantasy.

The house’s exterior walls are rusticated limestone; a slate-clad mansard roof caps its meandering asymmetry. Inside, the house is something of a travel-log of reclaimed or aged materials, notable examples of craftsmanship, and European manor tropes. Amenities include a billiards room, a card room with a wet bar, a combination kitchen-day room-family room with reclaimed ceiling beams, and a screening room.

The property’s outdoor living areas include stone paver patios, paths and motor court, gardens, a sweeping back lawn, and a pool and spa.

Gores’ net worth is around $2.6 billion, per Forbes.
