Ratpack's Dean Martin home for sale

House Martin

05.08.19

A Beverly Hills mansion that replaced the long-time home of entertainer Dean Martin is coming on the market for $75 million.

The massive concrete home is about 27,500 square feet and has a modern museum-style look. It has large teak doors, a two-storey atrium, a ballroom, a large dining room and dramatic water features, including a series of manmade ponds and waterfalls. There is an indoor pool as well as a 98-foot outdoor swimming pool.

The property was most recently owned by late real-estate developer Guilford Glazer and his wife Diane Glazer. Mr. Glazer was a major owner of commercial real estate, and developed the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, California, one of the country’s largest malls. He died in 2014, and Ms. Glazer died in April 2019.

The Mountain Drive house, completed in 1995, replaced a property formerly owned by Mr. Martin.

Mr. Martin and his second wife Jeanne Martin bought the property in the 1950s, according to the book "Dino, Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams" by Nick Tosches. Mr. Tosches described the original property as a "wood-and-fieldstone dream house, with three servants, six cars, a swimming-pool, a tennis court."

In his book, "That’s Amore: A Son Remembers Dean Martin," Mr. Martin’s late son Ricci Martin described his father’s latter years at the home, which by 1967 had expanded to about 12,000 square feet from its original 5,000 square feet.

"In spite of its size, we never thought of 601 Mountain as a mansion, but more as a ranch house," Mr. Martin’s son wrote. "In spite of the celebrity circle that swirled around my father and mother, the heart and soul of our house were shielded from the glare of Hollywood."

The Martins bought the home for $120,000, according to Ricci Martin’s book, which was co-written with Christopher Smith. It remained their home for about two decades.
