This gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion in celebrity-packed neighborhood heads for auction

A 10,600-square-foot, ivy-covered Beverly Hills mansion in a neighborhood filled with celebrities is going to auction next month, having previously been listed for $20.5 million.

With six bedrooms, seven baths, a master suite with fireplace and two balconies, a library and an office, the estate is walking distance to Rodeo Drive’s shops and restaurants. The neighborhood has leafy, curvy streets and expensive homes that have attracted famous residents, such as Donna Reed, Dean Martin, Courtney Cox and Shirley MacLaine, over the years.

“Behind intricate carved gates, drama and romance beckon,” according to the official listing.

The home at 715 North Alpine Drive sits on a little over a half-acre. It is entered through a grand, bright white modern foyer with a dramatic, curved staircase and sculpted railing. The decor features rich dark mahogany-wood floors and white walls. There are vaulted ceilings, French doors and large windows that take in lush garden views.

“Architectural details and rich materials exist in each room including walls finished by Italian artisans with gold-and-nickel dust for color and shine,” wrote, which received permission to publish photos of the mansion (see video above).

The home comes with a gold-accented bath, huge chef’s kitchen with onyx countertops, and a large terrace with an outdoor living room and fireplace, an outdoor kitchen and pizza oven. There are eight French-style fireplaces with large fireboxes for looking at the beauty of the flames.

For oenophiles, the mansion comes with a 5,500-bottle wine room.

Outside offers lounging in the shade of a loggia or in the sun near the pool and spa.

The home goes to no-reserve auction beginning April 15, 2020, through Concierge Auctions.
