Williams-Sonoma house listed for $30 million

holmby.jpgActually, it's the Holmby Hills home of W. Howard Lester, the late chairman and chief executive of the kitchen retailer. He and his wife Mary bought the property in 2004 for $17.5 million and then they went through a major renovation that included the addition of a movie theater room and wine cellar. Lester died in 2010. From the WSJ:

The roughly 20,000-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms along with a home theater, a library, a wine cellar and a billiards room. The home theater has a barrel-vaulted, gold-leafed ceiling. There's also a guesthouse on the 1.4-acre property, accessible via an arched brick bridge. There's also a waterfall, fountains, a pool and a rose garden. The home is a few doors down from the Manor, the mansion racing heiress Petra Ecclestone bought last year for $85 million.
