Merv Griffin's Bel Air Estate

Griffin was the mastermind behind popular longtime TV game shows “Jeopardy,” “Wheel of Fortune” and the host of a popular, syndicated talk show. Later in life he was a real estate investor and owned a unique L.A. property that came on the market in 2012 and is now for sale again. Griffin had sold the home to another celebrity in 1992 for $3.65 million.

The home was built in 1989 by a local real estate agent who had a penchant for designing and flipping homes. Attracted to the open floor plan and private location, Griffin bought the property.
