$39 million — Beverly Hills
Box-office star Tom Cruise registered another of the 90210’s priciest transactions in June, when he sold his home on Calle Vista Drive for $38 million. The buyers wereLeon Black, who co-founded the private equity firm Apollo Global Management, and his wife, Debra, who made the off-market purchase through an LLC.
The acre-plus estate quietly came up for sale last year with a whisper price of $50 million. Cruise bought the property in 2007 for $30.5 million in another deal finalized outside the Multiple Listing Service.
Tax records show that the hedged and gated estate centers on a main house of more than 10,000 square feet. Seven bedrooms and nine full bathrooms are among 35 total rooms. A swimming pool, a tennis/basketball court, two detached structures, lawns and formal landscaping make up the grounds.
Michael Eisenberg of Keller Williams held the pocket listing. Sharyn Gertz and Deedee Howard of the Agency and Fred Bernstein of Westside Estate Agency represented the buyers.
