BEVERLY HILLS (CNS) – A 10.2-acre compound once owned by the late Columbia Pictures chief Dawn Steel has been listed for $34.5 million, the listing agent announced today.

The estate offers a commanding view that stretches from Beverly Hills to the Pacific Ocean. The Monterrey Colonial main house features six bedrooms and five bathrooms, several fireplaces, hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings.

The property also includes a separate two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house with a full kitchen, as well as a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom staff house with kitchen, and a pool area.

Steel, the first woman to head a major Hollywood studio, became known in the movie industry for developing several hits at Paramount Pictures, including “Flashdance,” “Footloose,” “Top Gun,” “The Untouchables,” “The Accused,” and “Fatal Attraction.” She died in 1997 at the age of 51.

The estate is among the few in Beverly Hills zoned for horses and includes stables, according to a statement. The property is being listed by Aaron Kirman, president of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group.

“This estate offers unparalleled views, along with the charm of an original Beverly Hills home,” Kirman said. “It also comes with some amazing Hollywood history in a peaceful hilltop setting… It’s ideal for a family seeking a classic Southern California experience, or for a developer interested in a prestigious location with spacious grounds, exceptional views, and privacy to build the ultimate estate compound.”
