A Beverly Hills estate formerly home to the late movie director Tony Scott is back on the market for $26.9 million, $15 million less than its original asking price.

The property has been chopped up into smaller parts. The initial listing came with four additional empty lots, while the new offering comprises a 7,000-square-foot main residence as well as a separate two-story guest cottage and an additional 3,000-square-foot house on just two lots, said listing broker Suzette Abbott of Sotheby’s International Realty. 

The property first came on the market in September 2015 for $42.5 million.

More recently, the Mediterranean-style compound got a makeover by interior designer Kathryn Ireland, said Abbott, who shares the listing with Enzo Ricciardelli.

“Now it has a sort of bohemian feel,” she said. “[Ireland] came in last month and put in her signature touches.”

The 1920s-era home, dubbed Bella Vista, was built by architect John Byers for director King Vidor. The main house has three bedrooms and features a paneled library, an octagon-shaped living room, a study, and a so-called “opium den” above the master bedroom, according to marketing materials. It has seven bedrooms, nine full baths and two half baths. On the 1.3-acre grounds, there’s a pool with a cabana, an outdoor fireplace, and multiple koi ponds.

Early in its 100-year history, Bella Vista was home to actor John Barrymore, who hosted the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Marlon Brando at the compound.

Scott, known for films such as “Top Gun” and “True Romance,” acquired the property in the early 1990s, Abbott said. He died in 2012.
