‘Real Housewives’ Star Erika Jayne Lists Circa-1928 Pasadena Estate
If you’re plugged into the realm of reality TV and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you may recognize this Pasadena estate owned by Erika Jayne. It has been on the show as long as the pop star has, and now it is on the market asking $13 million.
This listing comes in the midst of the Bravo star’s divorce from husband Tom Girardi, but it is also part of Girardi’s bankruptcy proceedings. The New York Post reports that once in contract, Girardi will have 20 days to vacate the mansion, but Erika Jayne has been living elsewhere for months.
Despite the circumstances that surround this opportunity, it is an exciting property for those who love traditional Los Angeles grandeur. Starting at the huge bronze door, there’s nothing subtle about the home’s luxury just like there’s nothing subtle about Erika Jayne’s love of glamour.
Built in 1928 and designed by Myron Hubbard Hunt, the 10,277-square-foot mansion has coffered ceilings, a walnut-paneled gallery, and impressive fireplaces. A chapel with a Gothic-style ceiling may be the home’s most distinctive space.
No California manse of this caliber is complete without indoor/outdoor living, and that is not a problem here. French doors lead out to a veranda that overlooks fountains flowing down to the pool. The grounds, clocking in at almost two acres, also boast their own ornate details like the stately lamp posts. These create an undeniable, park-like atmosphere with a hint of history, too.
Ted Clark and Heather Lillard of Compass have the listing, which despite its size just holds four bedrooms.
