Frank Mancuso Jr. Asks $24 Million for BevHills Estate

Veteran movie producer and Tinseltown scion Frank Mancuso Jr. — his father headed Paramount Pictures in the 1980s, and MGM in the ’90s — has his Beverly Hills estate up for sale with an asking price of $24 million. Mancuso, whose slew of cinematic credits include several installments in the “Friday the 13th” franchise, purchased the 3.5-acre property in 1989 for $1.7 million, per property records, and eventually engaged the services of architect John Reed, who custom-designed a nearly 14,000-square-foot Spanish-influenced mansion completed in 2010. Old World architectural details include carved-wood doors, patterned encaustic tiles and ornamental iron work, much of it sourced from the arts-and-craftsy Mexican city of San Miguel de Allende.

There are a total of eight bathrooms divided between the main house, which includes four en suite bedrooms, and separate guest quarters that provide two more bedrooms. Ample formal living and dining rooms — the former with fireplace and vaulted exposed-beam ceiling, the latter with a dramatic, barrel-vaulted ceiling — are complemented by roomy family quarters that include a double-island kitchen with adjoining breakfast area and family room with massive carved-stone fireplace. The grounds include a long and gated driveway, front and rear motor courts, garage parking for five cars, a soccer-field-sized lawn, well-tended gardens and, of course, a heated swimming pool and spa.

Some of the other showbiz bigwigs who own multimillion-dollar homes along the gated street high in the mountains above Beverly Hills include Channing Tatum, Harry Styles, Demi Moore, Jon Voight and Jon Lovitz.
