The larger property in the package, at 27234 Pacific Coast Highway, was previously listed separately with an asking price at nearly $40 million. The four-bedroom, six-bath mansion, designed by Chad Oppenheim and Burdge Architects, spans 7,160 square feet. All three levels of the property can be reached through a private elevator. The living area of the home takes up two full floors and has features such as a fireplace and a large seating area that opens to a private outdoor garden living room. The outdoor garden contains a 20-foot-long fireplace and a marble fountain.

The 27242 Pacific Coast Highway property, meanwhile, is a custom-built home designed by architect Tom Torres, according to a listing on Zillow. It has features such as an entry courtyard with a koi pond, a music room and a wine cellar.

The properties were also previously offered for rent at $350,000 per month. It was previously owned by Ed Fishman, a business partner of the late television host Dick Clark.

Richard Weintraub, the president and founder of Weintraub Real Estate Group, bought the assemblage for $23.9 million in 2013, according to Dirt. His company owns a portfolio of hospitality, retail and residential properties across Los Angeles. Some of his firm’s projects include retail center Malibu Lumber Yard and the Cambria Hotel in Calabasas.
