Everybody is kung-fu fighting for Jackie Chan’s former home — or so the seller hopes.
The action-film star’s former estate, located at 1705 Green Acres Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, lives up to the luxuriously retro vibe that the street seems to emanate. The adjacent “Greenacres” estate, formerly owned by silent film star Harold Lloyd, hosted a number of movie stars over the decades, including Alan Ladd, Mary Pickford and Marilyn Monroe, who filmed a scene from “How to Marry a Millionaire” at the property.
Glamour has never been cheap, so at $9.5 million, the price on Chan’s former home is fitting.
Built in 1986, the 7,638-square-foot, 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom home was owned by Chan for several years until he sold it for $6.3 million in 2005, according to property records. The estate has all the amenities expected in a Beverly Hills mansion including 2 automatic gates, a fountain centering a circular driveway, a grand double-door entry, a high foyer featuring an enamel inlaid chandelier and a professional wet bar with a wine cellar.
The detailed designs displayed throughout the home are spectacular, from the intricate golden staircase to the stained-glass windows in the master bathroom. The nearly $10 million price tag also includes most of the furniture, except personal collections and accessories.
The piano is not included, but no need to fret: The sound system in the spacious family room is there to guide the new owners on whatever musical journey their hearts desire. Entertainment is made easy with a gourmet kitchen and an exterior pool/spa/barbecue area.
Chan is also set to continue entertaining audiences with his lovable humor and famous action moves, with upcoming projects including “The Expendables 3,” “Skiptrace” and “Kung Fu Panda 3″ in the works.
The listing is held by Diana Cheng of Country Queen Real Estate.
