The Andrew R. Getty Estate, one of the largest Hollywood Hills compounds is available for the first time in years. This 7 acre property has only traded hands three times since its conception in 1926 (Getty, purchased the 70-year-old mansion in 1996 following the death of previous owner Miklos Rozsa, a three-time Academy Award-winning film composer known for his work on Ben-Hur). The magnificent 8-bedroom, 6-bathroom Spanish home sits on 7 prime hillside acres and boasts breathtaking views of Los Angeles.
The Nitty Gritty:
Superstitious buyers beware - the home is also the scene of Getty's rather gruesome death. Just one year ago, the grandson of billionaire Getty oil founder J. Paul Getty, Andrew Getty was found near one of the bathrooms unconscious and naked from the waist down. The 47-year-old was bleeding from a 'traumatic injury to the rectal area' purportedly caused by blunt-force trauma. The traumatic event was covered by more than a dozen news crews and photographers gathering that day as police blocked off the street outside the home with yellow crime-scene tape.
