This might be the only time you see “modest” used to describe a $32.5 million property, but it’s all relative—in more ways than one.
The Jack Warner estate Bezos purchased from music mogul David Geffen sits on 9 acres in one of America’s most sought-after neighborhoods. It includes a 13,600-square-foot, Georgian-style mansion, guesthouses, a tennis court, and a nine-hole golf course.
However, the elegant estate that’s one-fifth the cost of Bezo’s new acquisition was built in 1923 for Jack’s brother Harry. It includes a 12,220-square-foot, Tudor-style mansion.
Highlights of the Harry Warner estate
The renovated mansion sits on an acre-plus lot and comes with a guest house once inhabited by Marilyn Monroe. Other highlights include a European garden, a pool and spa, waterfalls, tennis court, koi pond, and a children’s park with a cottage.
One of the most noteworthy features of the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion is the state-of-the-art entertainment room. It features a drop-down screen and projection system, custom leather seating inspired by the chairs at the Warner Bros. Studios, an indoor-outdoor bar made of Jerusalem stone, and etched-glass windows.
The spectacular kitchen has hand-hewn beams, granite and hand-painted tiles, and high-end appliances, including a Wolf stove, Dacor oven, and Sub-Zero refrigerator.
