(Newser) – Beverly House, in Beverly Hills, has a storied past: Not only was it once home to publishing giant William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies—it was also a honeymoon destination for Jackie and John F. Kennedy. Perhaps less appealingly, it's the site of the famous Godfather scene in which a horse head turns up in a bed. It also appeared in The Bodyguard, agents Hilton & Hyland note. Now, Beverly House is on the market for $135 million. Alternatively, you can lease it for $600,000 per month, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The seller is attorney and investor Leonard M. Ross, who previously sought $165 million for the home. It's a six-acre property, and the house itself is 50,000 square feet. Designed by Gordon Kauffman, the home includes a 50-foot entry hall and 22-foot ceilings in the living room. There are three pools, a tennis court, and a terrace that can seat 400. Beverly House was built in the 1920s by a banker named Milton Getz, the Times notes.
