The Priciest Listing in U.S. May Look Familiar

August 31, 2017 | Comments Off on The Priciest Listing in U.S. May Look Familiar


The mansion featured in the 1960s TV series The Beverly Hillbillies hit the market this week for $350 million, making it the priciest listing in the U.S.

The neoclassical house, built in 1933, was used in the hit TV show to depict a rags-to-riches story of Jed Clampett and his family who moved from Limestone, Tenn., to Beverly Hills. The home in real life belonged to billionaire Jerry Perenchio, who died in May at the age of 86. He lived in the mansion for 30 years. Perenchio purchased the home for $13.6 million in 1986.

During his time there, he purchased neighboring parcels and nearly doubled the estate, to 10.3 acres. Perenchio renamed the 25,000-square-foot estate Chartwell.

The home features a ballroom, formal salon, world class wine cellar, a long private driveway, a guest house, tennis courts, a 75-foot pool and pool house, and covered parking for 40 cars.

The Chartwell estate pushes past the last highest price record holder: a Bel Air home on the market for $100 million.
