The 85-year-old Larry King who is known as America’s legendary interviewer and TV host has just listed his villa-like pile in Beverly Hills for a hair under $17 million. Purchased in 2007 at $11.75 million, Larry King and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Shawn Southwick, have been living in this palatial mansion for almost twelve years. Now in the middle of the divorce process, no wonder why they are trying to unload this luxurious asset. Are you wondering how is it like to live in a massive mansion in Beverly Hills? Let's take a look!
Located in the neighborhood called The Flats of Beverly Hills, the estate sits on a 0.48-acre gated lot with much privacy only the most stalwart of paparazzi would stake themselves outside. The ornate two-story mansion opens into a beautiful skylit foyer with a grand double staircase that rises to a curving second-floor gallery.
Sprawling over 10,800 square feet, the interior of the house is impeccable with imported Italian limestone, tile, Venetian plaster, and state-of-the-art technology throughout. Gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line commercial appliances, 5 bedrooms en suite upstairs, including master with separate sitting room and his and her baths.
The exterior is no doubt Beverly-Hills style with a large outdoor terrace and a pool adorned with two sculptured cherubs. The manicured gardens surround elegant swimmer's pool and adjacent full one-bedroom house fill out the private, lush half-acre grounds.
