Rod Stewart’s Beverly Hills mansion on market for $80 million

Date:

Sir Rod Stewart has reason to believe his Beverly Hills mansion is worth a lot more than he was asking for.

The “Maggie May” singer initially placed the Beverly Park manor on the market for $70 million this past summer, and just last week he raised the listing price to a cool $80 million.

Stewart first purchased the three-acre property in 1991 for $12 million and then commissioned famed architect Richard Landry to design the nine-bedroom, 14-bath mansion nestled in the affluent North Beverly Park enclave above the Hollywood Hills.

Stewart kicks off a new tour in early 2024 with stops in the States before heading to Asia and then Europe. He lands back in Las Vegas in July for The Hits residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. He denied recent reports from the summer that he said L.A. was “toxic.”

“Let me get one thing straight here. [The press] quoted me saying Los Angeles was toxic. It’s not toxic,” he said. “It might be to other people, but I’ve had some of my best fun and years in Los Angeles. But L.A. is not toxic. Sometimes the air’s a bit dirty, but I love L.A.”

When Stewart put the property up for sale, he told People magazine that he “won’t take a penny under what I’ve asked for.”

“Basically, I don’t want to sell it, and the kids don’t want me to sell it either,” he said. “There’s too many fond memories. I’ve lived [in L.A.] since 1975, and I adore the place.”

Privacy was paramount for the “Forever Young” singer, with a guarded gate at the entrance to the neighborhood and another set of double gates situated at the long driveway that leads to the ornate abode.

Overlooking manicured landscaping, the three-story, 28,500-square-foot home is framed with opulent double doors that open into a grand foyer, exuding a sense of refined luxury.

Hosting large parties and events or intimate soirées was made easy in the entertainer’s dream home, with wood inlay floors and a hand-painted bar that includes French doors leading out to covered loggia.

The airy, gourmet kitchen was designed to provide room for catering or casual dining, and in true English fashion, has two sitting rooms to either side: one for tea and another den with a fireplace.

Wine aficionados can keep their reds or whites at the perfect temperature in the wine room, which is conveniently situated near the formal dining room designed to comfortably entertain 20 guests.

The theater also opens up into a private outdoor seating and lawn area, which includes a 30-foot tall cascading waterfall fountain.

A double staircase leads to private quarters, including the primary bedroom suite with dual bathrooms, massive closets and a large covered terrace overlooking the pool. Serene views of the city and canyons can be seen throughout the home.

Each guest suite is complete with luxury amenities, including oversized bathrooms, closets and some rooms with their own private terraces.

Two full-size gyms are on the property, including an indoor recreational room, tennis court and soccer field.

“Beverly Park is the ideal haven for celebs and high profile residents,” agent Tomer Fridman of the Fridman Group told Fox News Digital. “It really is the perfect retreat as it offers unrivaled solitude and privacy in large, open spaces that suit homeowners who want enough space to live large and opulently without sacrificing privacy.”

Outdoor entertainment is made easy with lounge areas that surround the pool and jetted spa. A built-in barbecue near an outdoor fireplace provides even more reason to dine al fresco under the stars.

Stewart’s mega mansion also includes a massive motor court and five-car garage in addition to a four-bedroom, five-bath guest house.

The Fridman Group International holds the listing.

The “You’re in My Heart” singer is married to Penny Lancaster and has eight children.
