A 16-acre Beverly Hills estate, once home to the Goddess of Pop Cher, has hit the market with the asking price of $85 million. The Benedict Canyon property, complete with stables, riding rings, miles of trails, a swimming pool, and a tennis court, carries the desirable 90210 zip code. The property belonged to Cher in the 1970s and was later sold to Eddie Murphy. Its current owner acquired the address in 1994 and went on to purchase four adjacent parcels in different waves to create the 16-acre expanse.
Sold through the John Aaroe Group, the Benedict Canyon property is located minutes from Rodeo Drive. The 32,000-square-foot gated compound’s main house features 11 bedrooms and 17 baths, complete with a pool, a spa and a barbecue station spanning 20,000 square foot of space. The main house has two fireplaces, a dining room, two kitchens, a spa and jacuzzi, a dry sauna and a safe room.
The property is comprised of a group of magnificent stables; a pair of pristine and white-graveled riding rings as well a tennis court with seating area, lavishly landscaped grounds, and more. The current owners have added the equestrian facilities, staff quarters, guest houses, a tennis court, 464sqm of travertine floors, outdoor entertaining areas and koi ponds.
A beautiful 7,000-square-foot Moroccan guest house includes five bedrooms and five baths. Moroccan tiles, hand-carved wooden doors and coffered ceilings create a richly inviting ambiance and finish the exotic look of the home. Sequestered in the canyon just moments from the Beverly Hills Hotel, this vast treasure is part rustic, part refined and wholly without equal.
