Owlwood, the 9.86-acre estate now owned by billionaire widow Dawn Arnall, is one of the largest in Beverly Hills, so, naturally, it should be one of the most expensive. It is. In late July, it was rumored that Arnall was quietly shopping the property around for $150M. A star-studded provenance, a 12,000-square-foot Tuscan-style mansion, and a border with the tony Los Angeles Country Club all contributed to that astronomical asking price.
