The massive mansion in Los Angeles' Bel-Air area that the late St.
Louis Rams owner Georgia Frontiere owned from 1977 until 2005 has been
listed for $29,500,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the listing of the
10-bedroom mansion at 10410 Bellagio Road in Bel-Air, which hit the
market on June 22.
Before we delve into the specifics of this Paul Williams-designed
mansion, we should first give our readers an update on where we've
been this past week. For a variety of reasons -- which include
sickness, other writing
the birthday of someone very special to us, and attending a wedding in
Los Angeles' Century City area last weekend (at the InterContinental),
we have just been almost entirely unable to post until now. We
promise to get back onto a regular schedule of posts immediately,
particularly since there are so many juicy items to write about. And,
we'd add that there's still a healthy backlog of items that others
have written about (but not us) that we'd also like to post on over
the next few days.
So, on to the Frontiere mansion, which Frontiere (who died in early
2008) -- who also was known at times as Madame Ram -- had owned until
selling it in 2005 to real estate investment company Bellagio Road
Associates LLC for $8,375,000. That company then sold it in early
2008 to Hilton Hotels Chief Executive Christopher Nassetta for
$27,500,000. Now, Nassetta has it on the market.
We have written about this mansion many times, including when it came
on the market in October 2007 for $29,975,000, when it sold in late 2007, what its sale price at that time was, and who the buyer was (by that, we mean, Nassetta).
Built in 1931 and completely rebuilt in 2007, the mansion has 15
baths, a 35mm theater, a library, a billiard room, and public rooms
that open to a courtyard with a fountain and an outdoor fireplace,
according to public records and listing information. Its square
footage is something of a moving target. Current public records say
it measures 15,727 square feet, while listing information calls it
17,700 square feet. Previous public records (clearly, before the
mansion had been recently expanded) had tabbed its size at 10,276
square feet and 11,818 square feet.
Outdoor features on the gated, 1.68-acre or 1.72-acre (depending on
one's data source, it's either 73,354 square feet or 74,920 square
feet; we don't know where the listing agent gets the 1.8-acre number
used in listing information) property include two motor courts with
off-street parking for 40 cars, formal gardens, manicured lawns, a
pool, a tennis court and a guesthouse, according to public records and
We'll keep you posted on what ends up happening with this property. Stay tuned!
