This French chateau-style home was the residence of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck’s wife, Veronique, who died in 2012.
The palatial estate-owned Holmby Hills residence was built in 1932 and purchased by Veronique Peck after the actor's death in 2003, according to listing agent Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
“[The house] is almost like being far out in the country on your own 1.3 acres of secluded paradise,” Mills said. “However, you’re only minutes from the city’s best shops, restaurants and hot spots. I absolutely love showing this property. It’s my 45 minutes of tranquility during a busy day.”
Measuring 9,000 square feet, the estate has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and a mix of formal and casual living spaces, all with large windows opening out to the landscaped, “park-like” grounds and pool.
The master suite features a terrace, fireplace, his-and-her baths, dressing rooms and walk-in closets.
The monthly cost of such a home? Using a mortgage calculator, the monthly payment on the Peck estate would be $100,641, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage.
