Beverly Park


Children, Your Mama has some meetings to attend this morning so I'm going to leave y'all with an interesting tell all article about the ultra-posh enclave of Beverly Park. This gated community, located way up in the hills above Beverly Hills, is basically a tract for extremely large and lavish homes...some in the 30-40,000 square foot range.

There are 64 lots in Beverly Park and while plenty are owned by big name Hollywood types like Sylvester Stallone, Sumner Redstone and Denzel Washington, many are owned by the unknown super-rich whose lives afford them extreme luxury, security, and privacy.

There are a few residents like Jami Gertz and Reba McEntire whom Your Mama would not have guessed lived in a place like this. Who knew these gals would want to live in such seclusion and opulence? And while we LOVE Jami Gertz, who knew this child had that much money?

As Your Mama writes this, we are aware of only one property in Beverly Park currently on the market. More often than not, these properties are shopped around privately by high-end brokers. 27 Beverly Park Terrace, on the market for an astounding $29,000,000, sits on 6 acres and includes six bedrooms in the "children's wing," a master suite, guest room and two staff bedrooms. I'll post a wee bit more information and the couple of photos I have of this property later today.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this article from the New York Times. And of course, Your Mama would love to know what all the children think of this article and Beverly Park so send us some email and post some comments.

I see a television pilot in there, I think. I'm sure some script writer somewhere (just down the road from the people, probably) is rejoicing at all the raw material he just found here.

Love your blog!

You know it hunny...Forget the "Real Housewives of Orange County" on the Bravo and all those sexed up middle class mommies over at "Desperate Housewives," we want to see these Beverly Park bitches getting their Botox and whining to each other about the trouble it is to find a maid in Los Angeles that does not steal their Jimmy Choos or want to be famous.

I live in the hills above Beverly Park and can see many of the mansions from my backyard and they look HUGE from a considerable distance. It is some view!

Your Mama hopes you have a telescope and some fierce binoculars. Do all the children a favor and take a photo of the Beverly Park from you backyard and we'll post it.

Interesting info... 27 Beverly Park is a splendid home that includes a heated pool, hot tube, and a tennis court. Also if you're kid wants to have a tree house built well, forget it, its already their in the theme of Winnie the Pooh, with a built in slide and trampoline to boot. But remember this... all the fame of surrounding neighbors and the ultra exclusive nature of the living space, the surrounding lay of the land is emmaculate and well groomed. Being that my friend owns the place I'd have to say the guards can be a bit of a hassle, and some of your neighbors throw parties nearly everyday, but overall its not as vapid as you may assume... Just some food for thought...
