For some, it seems like just yesterday that the singing duo of Sonny and Cher were crooning to each other, and to the world, “I’ve Got You Babe.” For those who are true fans – or if you just want to own a prestigious property in the Holmby Hills locale – Owlwood Estate, the former home of the ’70’s musical pair, is back on the market now.
Located in a highly sought-after area between Sunset Boulevard and the Los Angeles Country Club, the ten-acre estate features a 12,000 square foot main house, surrounded by lush green professionally landscaped grounds that also includes an in-ground swimming pool, fountains, and artfully shaped topiary. After coming in through the private main gated entry way, you’ll also find a sunken tennis court, two guest houses, and two separate gate houses.
The 9-bedroom mansion, elegantly styled by architect Robert Farquhar, is done up in an Italian Renaissance style design. The home was initially built in 1936 for the ex-wife of Arthur Letts, Jr., Florence Quinn.
Selling less than a year ago for $90 million, the property is listed back on the market now with an asking price of $180 million. The price increase is due in large part to the steadily rising interest in the location. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
