The buyer of this $90 million luxury estate was Sturmer Pippin Investments, LLC. Mercer Vine is an emerging, Los Angeles-based real estate firm and represented the buyer. Adam Rosenfeld is the firm’s founding principal and was quoted, “Rarely has there existed an estate that combines a truly legendary past with even greater future potential. Mercer Vine’s goal was to reach a deal that gave the buyer the financial flexibility and profit potential needed to reimagine the Owlwood Estate. After months of careful planning and negotiation, this deal ensures that the estate will remain part of Los Angeles real estate history for years to come.”

The Owlwood Estate home buyers will partner with Woodbridge Luxury Homes on future renovations.

They always take into account a home’s rich history in all of their remodeling projects. As of this date, there are no concrete plans that have been announced.

The beautiful home was built back in 1936. It is an expansive property that offers 12,200 square feet of living space. The upscale estate was designed by architect Robert D. Farquhar. It has a distinct Tuscan-style design and exudes luxury at every turn.

There are two adjacent lots that are now part of the current property. This land was not part of the original estate. As a result, the total acreage now is greater than 10 acres in size. The Owlwood Estate address is 141 South Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills.
