Former Paul McCartney Estate Lists, a Gilded Age Mansion Is for Sale for $65 Million, and More Real Estate News

From the listing of Paul McCartney’s former home to a historic Upper East Side residence hitting the market, there is always something new happening in the world of real estate. In this roundup, AD PRO has everything you need to know.

It’s not unusual for a Beverly Hills home to have some celebrity pedigree. But a gated compound on the market for just under $20 million could have its own Walk of Fame. Built in 1941 for Bert Lahr, a.k.a The Wizard of Oz’s Cowardly Lion, the 15,500-square-foot estate has also been home to Betty Grable, Paul McCartney, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, among other notables. It was even designed by a star: trailblazing Black architect Paul R. Williams, whose celebrity clientele also included Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and Cary Grant. (Williams is also responsible for iconic elements of LAX and the Beverly Hills Hotel.)

The current owner, fashion insider Guy Attal, bought the property in 1999 for $2.55 million and has rented it to numerous stars since then. He’s also listed it quite a few times, but never seemed to find the perfect buyer. The current list price of $19.995 million is down from $22.995 million in June.

“The house has been very emotional to let go of, he loves the house,” AKG | Christie’s International Real Estate’s Aaron Kirman, who is sharing the listing with colleagues Kirby Gillon and Bryce Lowe, told Mansion Global. “Today he’s ready to let it go. It’s why he’s agreed to reduce it.”

The main house has seven sleeping chambers in all—two primary suites plus three additional bedrooms and quarters for two staff members. An adjacent guest house adds two more beds, as well as an attached two-car garage.

As for recreational offerings, there’s a pool, tennis courts, putting green, and even a two-lane bowling alley. How’s that for the Hollywood treatment?
