“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne’s home featured on the present was listed for $13 million on May 5 as a part of her ex Tom Girardi’s involuntary bankruptcy proceedings.
The 81-year-old former lawyer has been identified with late-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia and allegedly misappropriated $2 million meant for Lion Air Flight 610 crash victims — amid other lawsuits — forcing him to file for bankruptcy.
Once the ten,000-square-foot mansion goes below contract, Girardi could have 20 days to maneuver out, according to the bankruptcy deal. Meanwhile, the 49-year-old “EXXPEN$IVE” singer has been living at another residence for a number of months since the couple filed for divorce in November.
“There’s no way the debtor can service the mortgage on this property,” lawyer Leonard Pena said during a hearing in February, quickly after the home was burglarized. “He plans on moving, but obviously we didn’t want it to happen overnight.”
The deal requires the mansion to be stored “clean and tidy,” that utilities are paid and that he not work together with potential patrons.
Girardi bought the concrete and tan stucco Mediterranean-style dwelling for $1.3 million in 1980.
It has 4 bedrooms, 4 bogs, 4 powder rooms and some uncommon options — a chapel with Catholic statues, an ornate cathedral-style ceiling, stained glass home windows, viscose, lantern lighting and silk ivory floral wallpaper, according to the listing.
From the underside of Los Altos Drive, outsized iron gates open to a personal drive, winding as much as a brick motor courtroom with a fountain.
The dwelling’s stable bronze entrance door is flanked by palm bushes and lion statues. It opens to a walnut-paneled lobby that screams darkish, heavy, old-style luxurious.
The home constructed in 1928 has coffered ceilings, gold-colored wall sconces, 4 fireplaces, wainscotting and crown molding all through.
The eating room has yellow silk wallpaper with a floral design, and the darkish wooden wine cellar has room for over 200 bottles.
The eat-in kitchen has uncovered picket ceiling beams, cream-colored cupboards and an intricate blue tiled backsplash over the six-burner range. The kitchen affords a walk-in pantry and a big breakfasting space.
The main bed room suite has a cascading chandelier and twin dressing areas, one with Chinoiserie finishes and one with wooden panels and marble detailing.
They are adjoined by a toilet with a bath adorned with crimson silk and a bathe with stained glass home windows.
A wall of French doorways in the lounge opens onto a stone veranda with a coffered, lantern-lit seating space.
Beyond the patio, a gurgling fountain flows down a prolonged eight-tiered walkway with an outlet on the pool with water options. The splashy pool runway is bookended by a chandeliered pergola with wings of a wisteria-covered trellis.
A second patio results in a strolling path that connects the rose backyard to the grass lawns. The lush 1.7-acre grounds are coated in ivy, flowers, greenery lit by iron lamp posts. The property has views of the Colorado Street Bridge.
Ted Clark & Heather Lillard at Compass have the itemizing.
Jayne has said that their divorce was not due to the embezzlement claims, as a class action lawsuit claims, however as a result of she claims Girardi cheated on her. “RHOBH” has teased details in trailers for the next season premiering May 19 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
