Asking $39.7 million, the 42,000-square-foot concrete skeleton is on the property once belonging to Hollywood producer Richard Zanuck
An unfinished megamansion featuring “Batcave”-like security has hit the market in an already gated community in Beverly Hills, California, asking $39.7 million.
The two-story concrete skeleton stands atop a four-acre promontory in Beverly Park that once belonged to the late Hollywood producer Richard Zanuck, whose work includes “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Jaws,” and the 2001 remake of “Planet of the Apes.” The filmmaker died in 2012 at the age of 77.
The hulking 42,000-square-foot new-build replaced Zanuck’s custom estate, which set a record as the most expensive one-bedroom house ever to sell in Los Angeles when his widow parted with it for $20.1 million in 2012, property records show.
The current house is on track to be four times as large, and is now about 70% finished, said agent Shawn Shirdel of Sotheby’s International Realty, who listed the home earlier this month.
