In 1962, we were introduced to Jed Clampett and his family in the television series The Beverly Hillbillies. The Clampetts lived on oil-rich land, and were paid millions by OK Oil Company to drill on their land.
With a new fortune, Jed, his mother-in-law, his daughter Elly May, and his nephew Jethro packed up everything and headed for Los Angeles – Beverly Hills to be specific. They moved into a huge mansion and as you can imagine, hilarity ensued!
The Clampetts moved into a gorgeous mansion in Beverly Hills, which was actually a real mansion, not a sound stage!
Well now, The Beverly Hillbillies estate is for sale. Actually, it’s been for sale for two years!
In August 2017, the mansion was put on the market for the largest real estate price tag in the country, a whopping $350 million, according to Fortune. The 10.39-acre estate boasts a 25,000-square-foot main house, a 5,700-square-foot guesthouse, 11 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, a 12,000 bottle wine cellar, gorgeous gardens, a tennis court, an underground parking garage for 40 cars, and a 75-foot-long swimming pool.
Over the past two years, the property, known as Chartwell Estate, has had several price drops. The most recent one occurring on Tuesday (June 25) by $50 million, making the current asking price $195 million.
Pretty reasonable if you ask us…in our dreams!
