Recently, we heard that Guess? co-founder Georges Marciano had put his Robert D. Farquhar-designed mansion in Beverly Hills on the market for $24.5 mil. As detailed quite thoroughly by the Real Estalker's freakisly well-informed Mama, the once absurdly wealthy and successful Frenchman has suffered quite a dramatic reversal of fortune in recent years. As Your Mama explains it: "Several years ago, in the aftermath of a bitter 2004 divorce, an increasingly erratic Mister Marciano filed suit against a group of former employees whom he accused of looting money, wines and artwork. The suit backfired big time. Not only did forensic accounting not show any financial misconduct on the part of the former employees, the accused group counter sued for libel and won a staggering $425,000,000 judgement against Mister Marciano who shockingly and inexplicably made a silly run for the California governorship while all this was going down."
And now, public records indicate that as part of involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings relating to the nearly half billion dollar judgment against him, the former jeans mogul's assets--or at least some of them--are being liquidated. Joining the Crescent Drive estate put up for sale a couple weeks ago is this newly listed pair of pricy properties linked to Marciano. Home #1, located at 9501 Sunset Blvd., is a 1951 traditional designed by Paul Williams. Featuring six bedrooms, eight baths, a pool, and tennis court, it's got a price tag of $8.25 million.
Home #2, a 1930s traditional colonial, is located next door at 9521 Sunset Blvd. The childhood home of Shirley Temple, it boasts nine bedrooms, eleven and a half baths, a tennis court, swimming pool, bowling alley, and an asking price of $10.9 million.
