Michael Eisner Buys Next Door Neighbor's House for $8.2 Million
The estate in Bel Air could mark the beginnings of a massive compound in the historic neighborhood.
Michael Eisner sure did some holiday shopping this year.
The former Disney CEO dropped $8.2 million on his next-door neighbor's estate in Bel-Air.
Public records indicate the home was bought through a trust and closed Dec. 17.
The newly purchased 1928 Tudor estate is located inside Bel-Air's East Gate on one acre of land adjacent to his current home.
Features include the standard stock items of any Hollywood studio executive's estate: a main house, guest house, pool and plenty of land surrounding it.
According to Trulia Real Estate Blog, the main house features include hardwood flooring, leaded glass windows, whitewashed brick, cross-gabled roof lines and half-beam exterior and interior detail.
There is speculation that Eisner will add the new house to his current Bel-Air estate, creating a massive compound in the historic neighborhood. Eisner has done this before, buying up four plots along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu to create a compound on the Encinal Bluffs.
