The Skinny: The epic shootout finale of the 1984 Eddie Murphy flick Beverly Hills Cop was shot on the terraced grounds of this historic Mediterranean-style mansion. Oddly enough, given that film's title, the sprawling home isn't located in Beverly Hills, but on the border of Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica, well outside of the BHPD's jurisdiction. Constructed in 1932 on what is now allegedly the largest lot in Santa Monica, the eight-bedroom main house, two-bedroom guest house, and two-bedroom gate house are surrounded by more than three acres of lush landscaping. The well-preserved period interiors include such extravagances as a "prohibition-era wet bar" hidden behind a false wall. Purchased in 1994 for just $3.17M, the estate is now back on the market following the recent divorce of its owners—author Victoria Foyt and film director Henry Jaglom. The asking price? A head-spinning $29.95M.
