Third Time's the Charm for Biggest LA Sale

New, 9 comments

When trying to guess the biggest sale price of a home that sold in LA in 2009, even the Los Angeles Times isn't sure. Hence their use of question mark in the headline and here's their story: "The biggest sale of the year appears to have been that of the Beverly Hills home of Simon Ramo, co-founder of the aerospace and defense company TRW, to DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, for $35 million. The house was not on the market, but public records show the 8,704-square-foot home, built in 1965, has four bedrooms and eight bathrooms and sits on 6.3 acres." Earlier we speculated the Richard Landry-designed Beverly Park was the biggest sale of the year (that's number 2, according to the LAT), while the AP was off on their own story.More about Katzenberg's $35 million home via the WSJ: "The six-acre property, which was never on the market, sits just above the Greystone Mansion, a Beverly Hills landmark. A long private drive leads to a house on a promontory. Mr. Katzenberg had been shopping for a large property with a view for several years." Real Estalker is all over the place, too.
