The July 2011 edition of Architectural Digest reads like a buyer's guide to insanely high-end California real estate. This is the famous Elizabeth Taylor issue, of course, featuring the magazine's long-awaited peek into the late starlet's Bel Air manse that hit the market last month. Now The Real Estalker brings word that the Hollywood Regency home belonging to TV honcho Richard King—grandly occupying pages 88 through 97—may soon be on the market for the dizzying ask of $63M. The house, built in 1938 and extensively renovated by Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, was decorated by King's wife, Lauren, who filled it with blue-and-white porcelain, modern art, Oriental rugs, and Georgian antiques, among many other collections. And in this context, her quote at the end of the story is actually a broker's dream pitch: "The value offered here will cause you the utmost happiness."
