Iconic is one word that describes The Beverly House, otherwise known as ‘the Godfather House’ for its cameo in The Godfather. The sprawling estate was once owned by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies, and was even the honeymoon locale for Jackie and John F Kennedy. It is situated just blocks from The Beverly Hills Hotel and Sunset Boulevard. The Beverly House has 18 bedrooms, a near-Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis courts, two screening rooms, terraces that hold up to 400 people, four security gates, a commercial-grade kitchen, two-story library with hand-carved woodwork, billiard room with an ornate wooden ceiling, Art Deco lounge and hallways more than 80 ft long. The Revival-style Mediterranean mansion is situated on 3.7 acres, and every inch of the property exudes Hollywood glamour.
