A socialite’s glamorous Beverly Hills home for sale

Pat Montandon – Los Angeles socialite, former wife of billionaire butter baron Al Wilsey and author of books like “How to Be a Party Girl” – has been shopping at her Beverly Hills home for two decades for $ 4 million.

That’s a nice improvement from the $ 1.65 million he paid for the property in 2003, according to records. Over the next several years, Montandon transformed the place into a glitzy entertainer’s retreat complete with crystal chandeliers, artwork, and bold shades of crimson and orange.

Located on two-thirds of an acre in Coldwater Canyon, the three-story home is surrounded by lush landscaping and shrouded in ivy. Inside, Old Hollywood-style spaces feature beamed ceilings and hardwood floors.

Four bedrooms and four bathrooms are spread over 4,000 square feet, and other highlights include a library with stone fireplace and a guest suite with private entrance on the third floor. The French windows open onto several terraces, which embrace the tree-lined landscape.

Bret Parsons and Aaron Montelongo of Compass hold the stock.

Montandon, 93, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for three consecutive years for her humanitarian work. In addition to “How to Be a Party Girl”, her other non-fiction books on entertainment include “Making Friends” and “Celebrities and Their Angels”.
