Tyler Perry Flips Out in Beverly Hills Post Office (EXCLUSIVE)

location: Beverly Hills (Post Office), Calif.
price: $16.995 million
size: 17,245 square feet, 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms

Having done few if any obvious or significant cosmetic improvements, entertainment industry powerhouse Tyler Perry seeks a multi-million dollar profit on a gigantic, glass-walled mansion in the ruggedly ritzy mountains between Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley’s Sherman Oaks that, after more than a year on the market with declining asking prices that started at a laughably rose-tinted $29.95 million, he picked up less than six months ago for $14.5 million and now has back on the market with a gutsy and arguably greedy $16.995 million. Someone in a position to know tells us Perry purchased the property purely as an investment and hopes it will be attractive to someone with great vision who will create an amazing home. Prior to Perry’s purchase the estate had long been owned by late billionaire aerospace entrepreneur and philanthropist Alfred E. Mann.
Set on almost 4.25 acres and with more in common architecturally to a suburban office building than a private residence, the angular and dramatically massed mansion sits behind gates at the head of a long drive capable of parking several dozen cars and measures in at a whopping 17,245-square-feet over three floors with ten bedrooms, eleven bathrooms and five fireplaces. Voluminous, atrium-like open-concept living spaces include a visually vexing Escher-esque series of stairways in the foyer that float over a stream and koi pond that runs clear through the house and out into the landscaped grounds along with soaring origami-inspired roof lines topped by pyramid-shaped skylights and vast walls of steel-trimmed floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views that sweep over just about the entirety of the San Fernando Valley. The estate’s sprawling, resort-like grounds provide numerous and humongous terraces capable of hosting large parties and charity events, a lighted tennis court and a lagoon-style swimming pool set into a tumble of boulders that also include a spa, waterslide and Playboy Mansion-style grotto.
Famous among celebrity property watchers for having a penchant for huge homes, the cross-dressing actor/comedian/writer/producer/budding billionaire owns another, larger custom-built mansion of more than 24,000-square-feet in the guard-gated Beverly Ridge Terrace enclave near the top of Beverly Hills’s Coldwater Canyon as well as “Avec Chateau”, an almost 17,000-square-foot behemoth in Fairburn, G.A. he custom built on nearly 11.5 acres he bought in 2001 for not quite $63,000.

      Beverly Hills Post Office is an area of Los Angeles/Beverly Hills. It is approximately north of Sunset, south of Mullholland, west of West Hollywood, and east of Beverly Glen.

          Nothing. Tyler Perry bought a house in an area of Los Angeles known as Beverly Hills Post Office. It has nothing to do with a post office. He was just trying to “flip” the house for a profit. It’s just a poorly written headline.

          1. It’s actually not remotely a “poorly written headline” in my opinion; it’s clever. And also for anyone who follows this blog or is remotely interested in the ways of real estate in LA, it should be clear as day and rather easy to interpret.

      From google……..
      Beverly Hills Post Office (BHPO) is the name given to the area just above City of Beverly Hills proper that is served by the Beverly Hills postal service, but that, in actuality, lies in the city of Los Angeles, and, as such, is served by L.A. city services (fire, police, schools, etc.).

    I hope the author of this article get sued for the headline. Clickbait-y and defamatory toward Tyler Perry (about whom I couldn’t care less about). Develop some journalistic integrity.

    1. Real Estalker Fan says:

      Sued for what? Your lack of understanding about what “Beverly Hills Post Office” means from a real estate perspective? You may also want to note (easily searched) that the author frequently uses the term “flips out” when referring to someone putting their house on the market very shortly after buying it (AKA “flipping”).

  3. Realty says:

    Flip………selling a property shortly after it’s purchased for a profit.
    PO……….try and find it you might get lost hahaha.

  4. Vic says:

    Certainly a header to bait readers. This article is anything but clever, it has a lot of jealous directives and the writer is defamatory. I will remember NOT to read hate speech written by this writer. Enough said

    With in regards to the last paragraph, why shouldn’t he have a huge home? People in his position in the business have similar if not larger homes
