A storied and virtually undeveloped 157-acre plot of land overlooking Beverly Hills is officially coming to sale with a record-setting asking price of $1 billion. Offering sweeping, 360-degree views ranging from the San Gabriel Mountains to Malibu, the Pacific Ocean, and downtown Los Angeles, prospective buyers will gaze down on neighbors who include Seth MacFarlane, Sylvester Stallone, and Warren Beatty.
Rebranded the Mountain Beverly Hills, the property previously known as the Vineyard Beverly Hills is the highest point in the prized 90210 zip code. It occupies a ridge in the Beverly Crest neighborhood adjacent to Beverly Hills, with Studio City to the north and Bel Air to the west. So large is the prized piece of real estate that all of Disneyland could fit within its confines and still have 57 acres to spare. Press materials liken a visit to the site, accessed via Benedict Canyon, to a “god-like experience.”
