The wealthy newspaper publisher spent the final five years of his life at the Beverly House, a 6-acre mansion situated on a private hill three blocks from Sunset Boulevard. The Beverly House is listed at $135 million.
Hearst moved from his San Simeon castle to the Beverly House in 1946. He died in Beverly Hills in 1951.
The mansion consists of five buildings, 28 bedrooms and 36 bathrooms. It is believed that John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy spent time there during their honeymoon.
The Bevery House is currently owned by attorney Leonard Ross, who has placed it on the market several times in recent years. Ross has listed the former Hearst home at as high a price as $165 million.
