âThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsâ star Erika Jayneâs house featured on the show was listed for $13 million on May 5 as part of her ex Tom Girardiâs involuntary bankruptcy proceedings.
The 81-year-old former attorney has been diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia and allegedly misappropriated $2 million intended for Lion Air Flight 610 crash victims â amid other lawsuits â forcing him to file for bankruptcy.
Once the 10,000-square-foot mansion goes under contract, Girardi will have 20 days to move out, according to the bankruptcy deal. Meanwhile, the 49-year-old âEXXPEN$IVEâ singer has been living at another residence for several months since the couple filed for divorce in November.
“There’s no way the debtor can service the mortgage on this property,” attorney Leonard Pena said during a hearing in February, soon after the home was burglarized. “He plans on moving, but obviously we didn’t want it to happen overnight.”
The deal requires the mansion to be kept âclean and tidy,â that utilities are paid and that he not interact with potential buyers.
Girardi purchased the concrete and tan stucco Mediterranean-style home for $1.3 million in 1980.
It has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, four powder rooms and a few unusual features â a chapel with Catholic statues, an ornate cathedral-style ceiling, stained glass windows, viscose, lantern lighting and silk ivory floral wallpaper, according to the listing.
From the bottom of Los Altos Drive, oversized iron gates open to a private drive, winding up to a brick motor court with a fountain.
The homeâs solid bronze front door is flanked by palm trees and lion statues. It opens to a walnut-paneled foyer that screams dark, heavy, old-style luxury.
The house built in 1928 has coffered ceilings, gold-colored wall sconces, four fireplaces, wainscotting and crown molding throughout.
The dining room has yellow silk wallpaper with a floral design, and the dark wood wine cellar has room for over 200 bottles.
The eat-in kitchen has exposed wooden ceiling beams, cream-colored cabinets and an intricate blue tiled backsplash over the six-burner stove. The kitchen offers a walk-in pantry and a large breakfasting area.
The primary bedroom suite has a cascading chandelier and dual dressing areas, one with Chinoiserie finishes and one with wood panels and marble detailing.
They are adjoined by a bathroom with a tub adorned with red silk and a shower with stained glass windows.
A wall of French doors in the living room opens onto a stone veranda with a coffered, lantern-lit seating area.
Beyond the patio, a gurgling fountain flows down a lengthy eight-tiered walkway with an outlet at the pool with water features. The splashy pool runway is bookended by a chandeliered pergola with wings of a wisteria-covered trellis.
A second patio leads to a walking path that connects the rose garden to the grass lawns. The lush 1.7-acre grounds are covered in ivy, flowers, greenery lit by iron lamp posts. The estate has views of the Colorado Street Bridge.
Ted Clark & Heather Lillard at Compass have the listing.
Jayne has stated that their divorce was not because of the embezzlement claims, as a class action lawsuit claims, but because she claims Girardi cheated on her. “RHOBH” has teased details in trailers for the next season premiering May 19 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
