The magnificent home of Patrick Moran, former president of ABC Studios, has gone on the market for $12,375,000.
The wow-factor property is a gorgeous architectural and historical home that was originally created for the Chandler family of LA Times fame.
It is celebrated architect Wallace Neff's last residential triumph, located on the 9th fairway of the Wilshire Country Club in Hancock Park.

Timeless neoclassic design joins contemporary austere styling, with majestic fluted columns creating an opulent facade with a roof line balustrade as well as creating a sumptuous outdoor terrace area.
The estate's innate grandeur is further meticulously preserved with original hand-carved crown moldings, a marble portico, an awe-inspiring foyer, 30 ceilings, herringbone wood floors and heritage tiling.
The mansion was inspired by Louis XV's Chateau de Louveciennes and, as such, the door and window fixtures were imported from Paris.
There are colourful works of art displayed throughout the home, from sculptures in the reception to bold prints in the dining room that complement the exquisite printed wallpaper.
The luxury bathroom is a masterclass in marble, and the modern kitchen is ultra-elegant yet modern. Recently installed new design elements echo Neff's original vision yet bring current technology and comforts to the forefront.
