Way back in 2005, Ari Emanuel — best known as co-CEO of Beverly Hills-based sports and entertainment giant Endeavor, and the real-life inspiration for Hollywood talent agent Ari Gold in the HBO series “Entourage” — doled out about $10 million for a palatial two-building estate in the affluent Brentwood Park neighborhood. Following Emanuel’s 2018 divorce, the property was deeded over to his ex-wife Sarah Addington, and now it’s popped up on the open market.
Addington first put the spread on the market last August for nearly $26 million, before lowering the price to $21 million and then removing the listing altogether. This time, it’s starting off with a newly improved $20 million ask, though that’s still about double what she and her ex paid for the place 17 years ago.
Built in 1987, the French Normandy-esque structure has since undergone an extensive makeover by L.A.-based interior designer Windsor Smith. Tucked away on a gated parcel spanning more than a half-acre, and fronted by an attached garage with space for three cars, the estate features a white wood-paneled main house featuring almost 7,000 square feet of living space boasting rich hardwood floors and striking coffered walls and ceilings throughout. There’s also a matching two-story guesthouse on the premises.
As for the primary residence, highlights include an entry foyer displaying a curving staircase, along with a spacious living room adorned with French doors flowing outside. A formal dining room adorned with a glass-enhanced ceiling and duo of built-in china cabinets connects to a gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with top-tier Viking appliances, a center island and windowed breakfast nook.
Sequestered in a wing by itself, the sumptuous master retreat lies beneath a decorative ceiling, and comes complete with a sitting area, dual walk-in closets and baths, a study and meditation room. Another wing has three guest bedrooms with access to a children’s library and an indoor basketball court, while a downstairs nanny suite is adjacent to a mudroom and laundry area.
Particularly demanding attention is the aforementioned guesthouse, which comes fully equipped with a bedroom, movie theater, billiard room and gym. And the posh amenities continue outdoors, where the manicured grounds include a pool and spa, as well as an al fresco dining space sporting a fireplace and barbecue setup.
No word yet about where Addington is moving, but Emanuel recently bought a $28 million estate in prime Beverly Hills. The Brentwood listing is held by Siv Cotton and Landon Clements of Engel & Völkers.
