A $10 million house in escrow in just over six weeks? Perhaps it's the pedigree: this house in the Doheny Estates was built in 1942 for Ronald Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman. It has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a north/south tennis court, a pool, a "Balinese style pool house," media room, library, indoor and outdoor spas, wine cellar, and very specific 340 degree views. There are also probably really old jelly beans wedged between some of the floorboards. The house was first listed in late June, asking $12.75 million, and was chopped in early July to $10 million. It went "sale pending" yesterday.
