Legendary William H. Doheny Estate in Bel-Air Wants $45M

New, 2 comments

On the market for the first time ever, this 1963 estate in Bel-Air, Calif. once belonged to William H. Doheny Sr., the grandson of the insanely wealthy oil pioneer Edward Doheny. Now asking a hefty $45M, the 10,000-square-foot Hollywood Regency-style manse looks just about as grand as one would expect from what Curbed LA calls "one of Los Angeles's most socially and historically prominent families." The shockingly scant listing promises eight bedrooms, terrazzo floors, a tree-lined pool, and separate staff and guest quarters. There's apparently also a sun room, billiards room, library, card room, and "parking for approximately 15 cars." Unfortunately there isn't much photographic evidence to back it up, but do check out available (and curiously sepia-tinted) listing shots below:
