Film Producer Jon Peters Beverly Hills Post Office Area for $12 Million
The former King Vidor estate site included house plans by architect Richard Landry. A 14-car underground garage and office are already on the three-parcel property, which sits behind gates. There are city and ocean views.
Peters, 64, has produced such hit films as “Superman Returns” (2006), “Wild Wild West” (1999), “Batman Returns” (1992), “Gorillas in the Mist” (1988) and “A Star Is Born” (1976). He sold to move to his ranch outside of Santa Barbara.
Vidor’s directing career earned him a Guinness World Records spot for “longest career as a film director” starting with “Hurricane in Galveston” (1913) and ending with a 1980 documentary “The Metaphor.” He directed “War and Peace” (1956) and the black-and-white Kansas scenes in “The Wizard of Oz” (1939).
The property came on the market in March at $19,995,000. Jeffrey Hyland, Brooke Kaufman and Chad Rogers of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, shared the listing. David Kramer of the same office represented the buyer.
