They say when at first you don't succeed, raise the price and try again. And rock legend Rod Stewart is proving just that with his unconventional sales strategy. After listing his extraordinary English country-style estate in Beverly Hills for a whopping $70 million, Stewart quickly realized it didn't have the desired "hot legs" it needed to attract buyers.
But Stewart refused to settle for conventional methods. Instead, he relisted the stunning property in early December, this time with a higher price tag of $80 million and a new representative from Compass. Perhaps at this increased amount, the seller would even be willing to include some of those fancy furnishings that adorn the lavish estate.
Nestled within the exclusive North Beverly Park community, this sprawling estate is truly a stunner. Boasting nine ornate bedrooms and twelve glittering baths, the residence spans an impressive 28,000 square feet. Set on over three meticulously landscaped acres, it exudes a sense of luxury and prestige.
Acquired by Stewart back in 1991 for a mere $12,085,570, he spared no expense in transforming it into his regal retreat. Enlisting renowned designer Richard Landry, who has worked on projects for top-tier celebrities like Mark Wahlberg, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, and Wayne Gretzky, the interiors were elevated to new heights of opulence.
As you pass through the intricate double gates and make your way down the private drive, you'll be greeted by a motor court adorned with a magnificent sculptured marble fountain. It truly feels as though you've crossed the pond and entered a palatial estate fit for rock royalty.
Amidst all the grandeur and allure, one thing is certain - Rod Stewart's masterpiece exudes an undeniable charm that captivates both the eye and the soul.

Luxurious Estate with Sprawling Grounds
This magnificent property showcases an impressive main residence and a charming guesthouse. Both are adorned with exquisite marble, gilding, elaborate paneling and molding, sparkling chandeliers, and elegant silk draperies. A total of eight ornate fireplaces can be found throughout the premises.
One of the standout features is the spacious great room, boasting fine millwork and a meticulously hand-painted bar. French doors open up to the expansive grounds, offering a picturesque view. Here, you'll find lush grassy lawns, a fully lit tennis court, a soccer pitch, a refreshing pool and spa, and an outdoor kitchen area complete with a barbecue.
Exquisite Bedrooms and Luxurious Amenities
Each bedroom is en suite for ultimate convenience. The primary suite is particularly impressive, featuring not one but two baths. One of the sleeping spaces is adorned in delicate rosy-pink marble, while another exudes a clubby atmosphere with dark-green marble and rich wood. And of course, no luxury estate is complete without spacious double walk-in closets.
Additional extravagant features include a hidden speakeasy, a state-of-the-art screening room, an expansive gymnasium, a dedicated hobby room, and a grand formal library adorned with floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelves.
Accommodating for a Grand Family Reunion
While this estate boasts grandiosity, it can still comfortably accommodate the large family of the esteemed 78-year-old crooner. Sir Rod Stewart has eight children from his three marriages. With a career that has spanned decades and over 120 million records sold, he continues to captivate audiences with hits such as "Tonight's the Night," "You're in My Heart," and "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?". Currently, he remains an active touring musician.
