The Wall Street Journal reports that Liongate, a gorgeous Bel-Air estate formerly owned by country singer Kenny Rogers, has sold for $50 million.
The newly renovated Bel Air estate has around 24,000 square feet of space, with 11 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. It was most recently listed last December for $65 million. The sale price included furniture and art.
Built in the late 1930s, the house was designed by architect Paul Revere Williams. Mr. Rogers, the singer, purchased the home in the 1970s. A Leo, he added the two lions by the gate and named the property “Liongate.”
The current owner spent several years renovating it, enlarging it from 9,359 square feet and adding a guesthouse.
The house has a ballroom with a separate entrance and bar, a billiards room, a 12-seat home theater, a massage room and a temperature-controlled wine room. Outside, a glass elevator next to the pool provides access to a tennis court and a gym.
Mia Trudeau of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, was the listing agent.
