The current owner is real-estate investor Leonard Ross, according to reports, who bought the compound over four decades ago for less than $2 million. Newspaper mogul, William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies, had both previously owned the mansion and the estate was even a destination on Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy's honeymoon before becoming the west coast presidential election headquarters for JFK. For many movie fans though, the house is probably more famous for the gruesome horse head scene in 'The Godfather'.
The luxury property was last formally on the market in 2007 for around $165 million, however, Ross opted to take the house off the market less than a year later.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Ross, has finally decided to sell the Beverley Hills mansion because he is "getting up there (in age)."
