The property where actress Sharon Tate was killed — and where screenwriter Jeff Franklin has long lived — is now available at a steep discount.
The opulent Beverly Hills abode, known as “The Cielo Estate,” first listed last January for an eye-watering $85 million. After a year on the market, the price tag remains jaw-dropping, but is now $25 million less.
Franklin, 68, is best known for creating the hit ABC sitcom “Full House” and purchased the property in 2007 for $6 million, The Post reported last winter. At that time, the 18-bathroom mansion was not yet completed. The previous home atop the 3.6-acre plot was demolished after Tate, the coffee heiress Abigail Folger, the celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring and the aspiring writer Wojciech Frykowski were murdered inside by members of the Manson family in 1969.
The new, Andalusian-style dwelling that now sits at the site of the grisly killings is palatial, measuring in at 21,000 square feet — with nine bedrooms, a detached guest house and what the broker says he’s told is the longest pool in Beverly Hills. (It measures 75 yards.)
“There’s a koi pond in it,” Douglas Elliman’s Joshua Altman, who holds the $59.99 million listing, added to The Post. “It’s almost like you’re swimming with the fishes.”
Other water features include a waterfall, a grotto, multiple hot tubs, a 35-foot water slide, a lazy river and a shark tank in the dining room. Dryer amenities include a home movie theater, a spa, a gym, a hair salon, an underground 16-car garage, a billiards room, a bar and a custom photo booth built into the house “because the owner entertains so much,” Altman explained.
The compound is set behind double gates and a stone motor court, and entered through front doors. They lead to a two-story foyer complete with a custom staircase and a dome ceiling.
