Merv Griffin owned an impressive collection of properties during the course of his career. The late television host and media mogul once had a horse ranch in La Quinta and a villa in Beverly Hills, as well as an infamous 157-acre property promoted as the best underdeveloped plot in the city that sold for $ 1 1 billion in 2018 (and sold for $ 100,000 at a foreclosure auction last year).
Another house that was once his, a stately home of Century City, has just quoted for sale for $ 3.25 million.
Although it is a single-family home, the property is still much larger than the average Los Angeles home with approximately 3,300 square feet. It is located in a gated community with high-end concierge services, such as grocery valet, the house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms on two floors.
