A Beverly Hills home made famous by a Howard Hughes airplane crash is now up for sale for $15.95 million, Mansion Global reports. The accident was the second of two Hughes crashes and occured in 1946, 20 years after the Wallace Neff-designed five bedroom five bathroom was built. The pilot, film producer, and businessman lost control of the craft, and as reported by the Los Angeles Times, “sliced through the upstairs bedroom of the home … narrowly missing the occupants… who were in the room at the time.” He managed to survive the crash, as did the home’s then residents, though not before knocking down a few trees and hitting another residence.
In any case, there’s been plenty of time for home repairs in the 75 years since the accident, and now it’s just as pristine as one would expect a home in the 90210 to be. The 6,500 square foot home’s foyer features marble floors and a grand marble staircase with bronze handrails and iron balusters that match an adjacent set of ornate iron doors that open to one of the home’s many lounge areas. Similarly luxe is the primary suite that features a seating area as well as a traditional sleeping space, two walk-in closets, a veranda, and an en-suite bathroom with dual sinks and a soaking tub.

Outdoors, deck jets streaming into the pool create a particularly glitzy atmosphere which can be enjoyed from the hot tub, bar, fire pit, or the covered lounge area that is backed by oversized arch doorways into the home.
