Casey Wasserman Lists in Beverly Hills (EXCLUSIVE)

We have Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills to thank for pointing out a carefully restored and updated 1920s Mediterranean manse in the increasingly popular and pricey Flats of Beverly Hills that’s listed at $12.5 million and owned, per property records, by Casey Wasserman, head of sports marketing and talent management company Wasserman Media Group. The grandson of late and famously bespectacled Hollywood power player Lew Wasserman purchased the property in late 2000 for slightly more than $4.4 million, and current listing details suggest there are a total of seven bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms between the main house and a detached, multipurpose structure that combined encompass about 7,300 square feet.

Set behind a high hedge and secured gates on a nearly half-acre lot, the main house has a double-height foyer that retains its original wrought-iron stair railing and octagonal terra-cotta floor tiles. A combination living/dining room stretches grandly to 30 feet with a wide bank of French doors to an entertainment terrace, and a commodious center-island kitchen adjoins a family room and informal dining area that opens through more French doors to a flat and grassy yard with swimming pool and oversized guesthouse that accommodates a gym, media room, office and a guest/staff bedroom.
The Tinseltown scion would like to lease the house back from the next owner until next May, per listing details, and this property gossip presumes that’s when he’s scheduled to move his family into the big house going up on a plum, 3.25-acre Beverly Hills site where — amid some flabbergast by architectural preservationists — the younger Wasserman razed his grandfather’s Hal Leavitt-designed midcentury modern mansion to make way for his own dream house.
