5. Hearst Mansion, Beverly Hills
The legendary and historical landmark of California, the Hearst Mansion (previously known as the La Cuesta Encantada), was established between 1919 and 1947 by designer and architect, Julia Morgan, for an American newspaper publisher, William Randolph Hearst. After William’s death in 1957, the whole property was donated to the Government of California. Since then, this exotic and luxurious mansion is treated and considered as the museum and public historic park, which is open for common people.
The massive mansion covers the area of over 90,000 square feet and its current value is around $190 million. The property features 19 sitting rooms, 56 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms, a movie theatre, swimming pools, tennis courts, 127 acre garden, an airfield, and the world’s largest private zoo.
The main attraction of the Hearst Mansion is the eminent Neptune Pool, which offers beautiful and splendid sights of surrounding ocean and mountains.
