Casey Wasserman asks $82.5 million for Beverly Hills mansion
May 28, 2020 - Beverly Hills
Entertainment and sports executive Casey Wasserman is putting his newly completed home on the market for $82.5 million.
The home is built on a site that comprises the former properties of three Hollywood heavyweights, according to the WSJ.
The first two were his grandparents Lew Wasserman, who transformed a talent agency into a movie studio and then into the first vertically integrated entertainment giant, and Edie Wasserman, a prominent philanthropist.
The Wassermans lived in a midcentury home on the property for about half a century, and entertained prominent guests including Bill Clinton, according to Mr. Wasserman’s spokeswoman and photos taken at the property.
The third property belonged to next-door neighbor Frank Sinatra. Mr. Wasserman purchased Mr. Sinatra’s property in 2004 for $6.5 million, Mr. Wasserman’s spokeswoman said.
After his grandparents died, he razed their home to make way for a new megamansion. The resulting house, known as the Foothill Estate, was constructed in 2016. The house sits on more than 3 acres, and spans about 18,548 square feet.
The lower level houses the staff quarters as well as a 1,148-square-foot gym, a screening room and an art studio. The top level has five bedrooms, including a master suite with a deck.
The grounds include an entertainment deck with an 85-foot infinity pool, a pool house and an outdoor dining area.
The property was designed to be eco-friendly with a geothermal system for heating and cooling and a generator for outages.
Stephen Shapiro of Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.
