Indulge us while we quote ourselves from a year ago: "every late March, like clockwork, there are rumors that former Dodgers co-owner Jamie McCourt has pocket listed her Holmby Hills house for $65 million." Here it is, late March, but McCourt has flipped the script! She's now publicly listed her Holmby Hills house and for only $55 million. Wild stuff. Then-married Frank and Jamie McCourt picked up a pair of houses on Charing Cross Road, across from the Playboy Mansion, back in 2004, when they moved to town to take over the Dodgers (that went pretty poorly). When the couple divorced in 2011, Jamie got the massive amounts of shared real estate and sold off the smaller Charing Cross house. The couple bought this main house for $21.25 million and reportedly spent $14 million on renovations, which included the wholesale transplant of their Massachusetts kitchen.
In 2012, Jamie, having moved into her gorgeous John Lautner-designed house in Malibu, supposedly pocket listed the Holmby house for $65 million. Again, in 2013, she supposedly pocket listed the Holmby house for $65 million. Today there is an actual official listing, and the house is going for a still pretty nutso $55 million. The property includes a main house (a "Contemporary European Villa [that] has been completely redone with quality and taste") and a guesthouse and pool house totaling 20,637 square feet, according to the listing. There's also an Olympic-sized indoor pool with spa, steam, and massage room; a "gourmet commercial kitchen"; library/screening room; and an outdoor pool with waterfall, all on about 2.6 acres. Unfortunately, the listing includes no photos, just an aerial taken from a mapping service.
