Conrad Hilton estate, Casa Encantada in Bel-air, hits market at US$225 million

KUALA LUMPUR, The Conrad Hilton estate, Casa Encantada, has come on the market for the first time in decades since it was built in 1938, with the price of US$225 million. (US$1 = RM4.19).

It is rich in history, having been built in the midst of the heyday of old Hollywood. Its architectural legacy and commitment of meticulous preservation shines through all aspects of this rare property.

The impeccably restored 40,000 square-foot modern Georgian masterpiece is situated on a promontory of more than eight acres in Bel-Air, just 10 minutes to Beverly Hills.

Famed architect, James E. Dolena designed it with city, ocean and garden views from all 60 rooms. Furnishings and interior designs were created by the iconic T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings to set a new standard for lavish home design.

Hilton owned the home for over two decades. The mansion and grounds have hosted some of the most significant social, charitable and political events in the United States (US), welcoming US Presidents and Hollywood royalty alike over its 80 years.

With a seemingly impossible intimate feeling, Casa Encantada welcomes guests with curved iron gates that swing gracefully from stone bases. The sweeping driveway guides through lush, green surroundings to lead visitors into the warm embrace of the main residence.

Other amenities include a north-south lighted tennis court, separately constructed basketball court, full guest house and multiple greenhouses. Koi ponds and irreplaceable landscaping makes the estate arguably one of the finest in the world.
