Michael Eisner, the man who led Disney as CEO from 1984 until 2005, has just spent $8,200,000 on a stunning estate right next door to his current home in Bel Air. According to public records, Eisner bought the home through a trust and closed on the deal on December 17, 2012.
The home he currently lives in is adjacent to the newly-purchased property, which makes us wonder whether he’ll adjoin the homes and make one large residential compound, or whether one of his children will move in and be a stone’s throw away from dear ole dad! Eisner has a history of creating massive residential compounds. He also owns a compound on the Encinal bluffs in Malibu, made up of 4 parcels on Pacific Coast Highway.
Public records also show that Eisner spent $1,279,500 on his original six-bedroom, six-bathroom, 12,500 square foot home way back in August 1979.
So what did he just buy from his neighbors for $8.2 million? The just-purchased, next door home is a timeless 1928 Tudor on one acre . The property features a main house, guest house, pool and expansive grounds. The main house’s features include leaded glass windows, hardwood flooring, whitewashed brick, half-beam exterior and interior detail and cross-gabled roof lines. The estate is just inside the historic and East Gate of Bel Air.
