The longtime family home of Bill Bell Jr., soap opera production company executive, and his wife, writer-producer Maria Arena Bell, is now on the market for $37.5 million.
Designed by architect Wallace Neff in the 1930s, the property has traded hands among a few celebrities, including Howard Hughes, Elvis Presley and Prince Ranier of Monaco, Beverly Hills city co-founder Dolly Green and British actor Reginald Owen, Variety reported.
It spans 13,360 square feet, and includes five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Amenities include a curving grand staircase, swimming pool, gym, spa, terraced gardens and library.
The Bells purchased the property in 1991 for roughly $4.78 million, property records show.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency has the listing.
Bell is the president of Bell-Phillip Television Productions, a daytime series production company founded by his family, William J. and Lee Bell. He and his wife also own a property in Malibu’s Colony enclave. [Variety] — Natalie Hoberman
