A little bit of crime biz history has hit the market.
The tony Southern California villa where a Jewish mobster met his demise is looking for a new owner.
In 1947, Bugsy Siegel — known for his involvement in developing the Las Vegas Strip and being a gangster — breathed his last breath, aged 41, when a sniper shot him through the window of a Beverly Hills home. That property is now available for purchase for a cool $16.99 million with Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.
“The Bugsy Siegel Estate is very special,” Nourmand told The Post of the seven-bedroom manse. She sees the buyer being someone with an eye for architecture and period houses looking for something more unique than your average cookie-cutter modern. “The seller did a lot of restoration work throughout the house to uphold its original character and design including the bathrooms, which have been restored to their original design,” she added.
The Joseph Fox and Sons-designed Spanish Colonial-style compound still features numerous original details, including the iron railings in its two-story entry and hand-painted tiles. All have been maintained to look similar to how they appeared soon after construction in 1928, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which first reported news of the listing.
“A lot of Spanish homes that were built in the ’20s have a musty, heavy, dark feeling. Unlike those, this house is full of light with windows and high ceilings everywhere,” Nourmand told the outlet.
In addition to its old-fashioned charm, the 7,092-square-foot spread — which is set on half an acre — also has various modern upgrades, including a new pool and a Sub-Zero refrigerator-equipped kitchen.
“This house also has a tower and at the top of the tower is a room,” Nourmand noted to the Reporter.
A turret room and a mob death not enough drama? The house’s block has also made the news for the time late business magnate Howard Hughes’ plane crashed into it.
