‘The most expensive home in the USA’ is on the market through a London-based estate agent for $119 million. 

The Beverly House in Beverly Hills is drenched in golden Hollywood glamour after the esteemed actress Marion Davies purchased the property for her husband, the newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst in 1946. Their heritage is reflected through the Art Deco home decor and sun-glazed Californian gardens.  

Admirers of the silver screen may also recognize The Beverly House as the backdrop from The Godfather and The Bodyguard, whilst JFK and Jackie Kennedy also chose to stay in this blushing terracotta during their honeymoon. The couple then used the house as Kennedy’s West Coast presidential election headquarters. 

Beyonce also used the house as the visuals for her album Black Is King in 2020.

Nestled among its 3.5 acres of landscaped grounds are reflection pools and cascading waterfalls, which lead to the crowning glory of The Beverly House - the Olympic-sized swimming pool. The pool is framed by a Roman temple facade which was designed in the style of the iconic Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle in California.  

The interior of the house is further characterized by its intricately carved ceilings, beautiful colonnades, balconies, French doors, and arched floor-to-ceiling windows.
