Snapchat’s Billionaire CEO Is Seeking $20 Million for Harrison Ford’s Former L.A. Estate

In June 1983, less than a month after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi debuted in movie theaters, Harrison Ford paid exactly $1 million for this genteel Los Angeles estate. Originally designed by noted architect Gerard Colcord, the Brentwood house served as Ford’s home base for nearly 30 years, until he sold it in 2012 for $8.2 million to Kevin Reilly, the former Chief Content Officer of HBO Max.

Reilly held onto the house for just four years, flipping it in 2016 for $12 million to Evan Spiegel, the billionaire Snapchat CEO who is married to model Miranda Kerr. After about eight years in residence, Spiegel and Kerr recently packed up and moved out of the place—not really such a surprise, considering their new $120 million mega-estate in the nearby Holmby Hills neighborhood is finally nearing completion.

Now on the market, the house and its 0.8 acres of land are available for just under $20 million. Listing information shows the main mansion, set on a knoll high above the street and just below The Getty Museum, was originally built in 1951 and encompasses 7,164 square feet with four bedrooms, all of them with ensuite bathrooms. There’s an additional poolside guesthouse, plus a detached guesthouse with two additional guest suites. There are a total of seven bathrooms on the property, according to listing information.

The hillside property features several separate structures, plus a swimming pool and lush gardens.

The main house features a two-story foyer with custom wood paneling, a very large formal living room, a wood-paneled formal dining room, and a more intimate library and family room, nearly all of which feature extensive built-in cabinetry and beautiful moldings. There’s also an eat-in, updated kitchen with skylights, marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances that include a glass-fronted SubZero refrigerator. Additional rooms and amenities are not limited to an office, wine cellar, and four original fireplaces.

The gated estate has a long and gated driveway that climbs to a circular motorcourt and two-car attached garage, terraced gardens, brick terraces, tree-ringed flat lawns dappled with shade, and several upper-level balconies with treetop city views.

Ford still splits his time between Brentwood, where he long ago moved on to a larger home in the Mandeville Canyon neighborhood pocket, and Wyoming’s Jackson Hole community, where he’s long owned a stunningly picturesque ranch just south of downtown.
