Bel-Air’s Chartwell estate sells for $150 million
December 13, 2019 - Bel Air
Lachlan Murdoch, media executive and son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has paid roughly $150 million for Chartwell, a Bel-Air estate, according to people familiar with the deal.
The sprawling Bel Air estate was owned by late media tycoon Jerry Perenchio, and was once the home of 'The Beverly Hillbillies,' before it hit the market for $350 million in August 2017.
But the media executive, 48, snapped it up for $150million, a person familiar with the deal told the Wall Street Journal which is owned by News Corp.
The mansion has 11 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, along with a 75-foot swimming pool, guest house, covered parking for 40 cars and a tennis court on the meticulously landscaped grounds.
The sale surpasses the previous record, set in July, when Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone sold the Spelling Manor for about $120 million.
