Among the top real estate sales in the greater Los Angeles area last week were a landmark estate once home to “The Gambler,” a Richard Landry-designed mansion, and a Buff & HensmanÂ on Malibu’s “Billionaire’s Row.” The Rogers home sold for $46.25 million, after a listing price of $65 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Rogers’ pedigreed estate, designed by celebrated architect Paul Williams, receives its name for a pair of lion statues placed at the gated entrance by onetime owner Kenny Rogers. Built in 1938 and rebuilt and expanded in 2013, the 24,000 square feet of living space includes a glass elevator, a ballroom, three living rooms and a 3,000-square-foot master suite. A newly built guesthouse, a tennis court, two fountains and a pool highlight the 1.62-acre grounds. Mia Trudeau of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christieâ€™s International Real Estate, was the listing agent.
