London, Mar 26 (ANI): The Los Angeles mansion John F Kennedy used for his honeymoon is in the market for a staggering 60 million pounds.

Beverly House is a 29-bedroom property nestled in the middle of the world famous 90210 postcode just a few streets from Sunset Boulevard, the Telegraph reported.

It is regarded as one of American's finest homes as well as one of the costliest - but the current listing is a deal compared to 2007, when the house was listed at 104 million pounds.

Alongside playing host to a newlywed President in 1953, Beverly House was also used for a number of scenes in 'The Godfather' including the infamous "horse's head" moment.

Boasting 70,000sq ft of interior space, the airy mansion includes a 50-foot entry hall with loggia, living room with 22-foot high arched ceilings, and a library.

It has a whopping 29 bedrooms, 40 bathrooms, nightclub, cinema and a billiards room containing herringbone parquet floors and a massive carved stone fireplace mantle from San Simeon.

The house was built in 1925 by English-born architect Gordon Kaufman, the man best known for his work on the Hoover Dam.

It was bought by banker Milton Getz but its most famous owner was publishing giant William Randolph Hearst.

The media mogul was given the property as a gift by US actress Marion Davies in 1946, with his 'mistress' paying just 120,000 dollars for the mansion.

Built out of terra-cotta stucco, the H-shaped residence combines Spanish and Italian style.

It has intricately carved ceilings and panelled walls, French doors, balconies, arched ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlooks cascading waterfalls to the pool and the Venetian columns beyond the pool house.

Outside, the property boasts 3.7-acres of landscaped gardens, and includes a 75-foot long swimming pool, two tennis courts and a sit-down dining area for up to 400. (ANI)
