Interestingly, the couple managed to secure an incredible bargain considering that the property was initially listed for an astonishing $295 million. The house is situated on an expansive 8-acre bluff, providing breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean in the esteemed Paradise Cove area, also known as Billionaires’ Row.
