The California estate featured in the credits of “The Beverly Hillbillies” is for sale, and the price tag is high, according to Fox News

The Bel-Air estate, known as Chartwell, went on the market Monday. It was the home of the late Univision billionaire A. Jerold Perenchio, who purchased the estate in 1986, and later died in May 2017 at 86.

Chartwell was originally built in 1933 and features an 18th century French neoclassical design. Within its 25,000 square feet of living space, residents enjoy a ballroom, world-class wine cellar, formal salon and a “period-paneled dining room,” as noted in a release from the listing brokers Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, Hilton & Hyland and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

The estate grounds stretch over 10.3 acres and include manicured gardens, a tennis court, covered parking for 40 cars, 75-foot pool, and a fully equipped pool house.

And the views? Chartwell offers “sweeping panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean,” according to the listing agents.

So how many pennies in the piggy bank does Chartwell cost?

It’s the most expensive listing in the country. Only $350,000 million.
