L.A.'s Start-Studded Enclave (The Wall Street Journal)
With homes that average 20,000 square feet, a vacant lot asking nearly $30 million and enough resident movie stars and film execs to fill a red carpet, the gated community of Beverly Park is one of the most exclusive, expensive places in Los Angeles, a land of exclusive, expensive places.
Celebrity residents include Denzel Washington, who purchased his property from Michael Eisner. Eddie Murphy, media mogul Sumner Redstone and Sylvester Stallone also live in the enclave. Barry Bonds owned a Beverly Park home until March, when he sold his 17,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home for $22 million.
