La Villa Contenta In Malibu: 'Funny People' House On The Market
share this story
Via RealEstalker: We wrote about this Malibu mansion in May when owner Richard Weintraub put it up for rent at $250,000 a month. It's now on the market for a whopping $75,000,000 for the entire estate, or $34,500,000 for a smaller parcel. The thirteen-bedroom, fourteen-bathroom property has 20,000 square feet of living space and sits atop over six acres of landscaped grounds. The grounds are filled with secret gardens, rose gardens, a kitchen garden, and a desert garden. Other structures besides the main home include the pool pavilion, guest house/office, green house, guest suite, and staff quarters.
The home has most recently been featured in the films I Love You Man and Funny People. Its luxurious digs draws many comparisons to William Randolph Hearst's mansions. Realestalker notes that the Weintraubs seem to have built "their own version of Hearst Castle on the bluffs of the Bu," complete with a pool house similar in opulence to the Hearst Castle's natatorium: "a palatial Greek Revival style natatorium/pool house with marble pilasters, walls encrusted with more than 500,000 seashells, six glittery crystal chandeliers, and a glass ceiling."
