Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills mansion to ask $30M

The Beverly Hills home of late romance writer Jackie Collins is slated to hit the market for $30 million.

The property, an eight-bedroom mansion totaling close to 20,000 square feet, was completed in 1992. It features a 100-foot long entrance way, a gym, a sauna, a screening room, terraces overlooking the Hollywood Hills and a motor court, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The pièce de résistance? A swimming pool in a central courtyard.

“My house in Beverly Hills was inspired by a David Hockney painting,” Collins told the Journal in 2014. “In 1989, my husband Oscar [Lerman] and I visited an art gallery in London, where we saw Mr. Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Splash.’ I couldn’t take my eyes off the pool and fell in love with the clean lines, suspended splash and overall tranquillity.”

Within days, Collins began imagining a design for a new home that wrapped around a pool based on the one in the painting.

Collins died last year after a secret battle with breast cancer.
