A slate roof for the America's most expensive home
This is America's most expensive home: Yours for $350 million in Bel-Air.
Designed by architect Sumner Spaulding for grand entertaining, the mansion was inspired by 18th-century French Neoclassical style. Under Perenchio’s direction, the residence was enhanced and restored by designer Henri Samuel. Features include a detailed limestone facade, a ballroom, a wine cellar and a paneled dining room.
The property was amassed during the last 30 years to include 10.3 acres of grounds. Adjacent sites acquired to expand the estate include a Wallace Neff-designed guesthouse and the long driveway. The grounds contain manicured gardens, a tennis court, covered parking for 40 cars, a 75-foot swimming pool and a pool house.
Perenchio, former chairman and chief executive of Univision, died in May at 86.
The property is listed by Jeff Hyland, Drew Fenton and Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland; Joyce Rey, Jade Mills and Alexandra Allen of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury; and Drew Gitlin and Susan Gitlin of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.
