Hot Prop­erty

Merced Sun-Star (Saturday) - - Real Es­tate -

fields and spec­i­men trees.

A nearby guest­house was de­signed by Wal­lace Neff, and the 75-foot swim­ming pool is ac­com­pa­nied by a pool house.

There’s also a ten­nis court and a cov­ered park­ing area for 40 cars.

Peren­chio, former chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of Univi­sion, died in 2017 at age 86. Since his pass­ing, Peren­chio’s es­tate has listed and sold a number of prop­er­ties, in­clud­ing two homes and land in Mal­ibu. An­other Bel-Air prop­erty hit the mar­ket in Septem­ber for $21.5 mil­lion and sold this week for $16 mil­lion.


The case of Greg Mathis’ gated es­tate in Tarzana has con­cluded in a sale.

Mathis, known for sit­ting be­hind the bench of the court­room re­al­ity show “Judge Mathis,” sold the Mediter­ranean-style manse for $3.1 mil­lion. It had been listed since Septem­ber for a dol­lar shy of $3.2 mil­lion.

Set at the end of a pri­vate and palm-topped drive, the well-ap­pointed home of­fers 6,399 square feet of ele­gant in­te­ri­ors. Dual stair­cases of mar­ble and hard­wood draw the eye in the two-story en­try hall.

On the main level, there’s a dra­matic two-story liv­ing room, a dou­ble-island kitchen, for­mal and in­for­mal din­ing ar­eas and a fam­ily room with a wet bar.

A cov­ered pa­tio ex­tends the liv­ing space out­side, where an im­pres­sive cus­tom rock pool takes in canyon views.

Off to the side, a ter­race also cap­i­tal­izes on the hill­side set­ting. The grounds span nearly an acre. Five be­d­rooms and six bath­rooms fin­ish off the floor plan.

In the master suite, a lounge with a fire­place con­nects to a bal­cony.

Mathis, 58, worked as a judge in Michi­gan’s 36th Dis­trict Court be­fore “Judge Mathis” first aired in 1999.

Sec­ond only to “Judge Judy” as the long­est-run­ning TV judge, Mathis started his 20th sea­son in Septem­ber.


Scott Bern­stein, the long­time Univer­sal ex­ec­u­tive turned in­de­pen­dent film pro­ducer, is ready to call it a wrap in Los Feliz. He’s listed his char­ac­ter-filled home in the his­toric L.A. neigh­bor­hood for sale at $4.495 mil­lion.

Set high up from the street, the Span­ish Re­vival­style home was built by pro­lific de­vel­oper Charles A. Gault and com­pleted in 1924.

At $245 mil­lion, the es­tate of late bil­lion­aire A Jer­rold Peren­chio the Bel-Air neigh­bor­hood of Los An­ge­les is the most ex­pen­sive home for sale in the United States. The 10-plus-acre es­tate cen­ters on a 25,000-square-foot French neo­clas­si­cal man­sion that was de­signed and built in 1935 by ar­chi­tect Sum­ner Spauld­ing.
