Beverly Hills mansion from Beyoncé’s Black Is King is on the market for $125million

A Beverly Hills mansion with a rich Hollywood history and a recent cameo on Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King is currently on the market for an eye-watering $125million. 

The stunning Spanish-style home dubbed ‘The Beverly House’ boasts 18 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, a two-story wood-paneled library and a ballroom across 50,000-square-feet adorned with rustic tiles and brimming with natural light.   

It sits on a 3.5-acre property that’s decked out with a nearly Olympic-size heated swimming pool, a tennis court, 800-foot circle driveway and beautifully manicured gardens.

Beyoncé fans will recognize the property from the recently released musical film Black Is King, which showed the performer lounging around with her husband Jay-Z and throwing a party you’d kill to get an invite to. 

The Beverly House should also look familiar to movie buffs, as it was featured in The Godfather starring Marlon Brando in 1972, and in The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in 1992. 

Prior to being used in those films, the home hosted John F Kennedy and Jackie Onassis on their honeymoon in 1953 and later became JFK’s West Coast presidential election headquarters.

The Beverly House was built in 1927 by famed British architect Gordon Kaufmann, who was best known for his work on the Hoover Dam. 

The home is designed with what’s known as H-form architecture, a style characterized by its sprawling open spaces, arched floor-to-ceiling windows, wide balconies and long colonnades, according to Architectural Digest

The gardens were designed by renowned landscape architect Paul Thiene, who blanketed it with tall trees and lush shrubs for privacy and created a cascaded waterfall leading to the pool.

The property was once owned by publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst and his mistress, actress Marion Davies, and today it is heralded as a symbol of Hollywood’s Golden Age. 

Despite its impressive history, the current owners have struggled to find a buyer after it was put on the market back in 2016 for $195million.  

It was relisted for a slightly more reasonable $135million in 2018, before receiving another price cut down to its current $125million asking from listing agents Santiago Arana and Mauricio Umansky of The Agency.

The listing regards the mansion’s spaciousness as its best attribute – pointing out that the main entryway spans a staggering 82 feet and the formal living room has a 22-foot-high, hand-painted arched ceiling. 

The main hallway upstairs stretches for more than 102 feet and features a stunning 40 feet wide, nearly nine-foot-tall mural by Dennis Abbe.

The listing also notes that the house was expanded in the 1990s, making it even larger than it appeared in The Godfather.

Some have speculated that the property could find a buyer in Beyoncé, who already showed it off to several family members in Black Is King – including her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, mom Tina Knowles-Lawson, and longtime friend and Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland. 

With enough room to host up to 400 guests for a seated dinner and more than 1,000 for a standing soirée, the home would be the perfect place for Beyoncé to throw the kind of party seen in her film. 

It’s also got a great location, sitting just three blocks from iconic spots including Sunset Boulevard and the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

But there’s no need to worry about over-zealous tourists trying to spot a celebrity in the home, as it’s blocked off by four wrought-iron security gates.
