New 13K sf mansion sold for $1.3M less than asking price

Financial executive Benjamin Griefer has purchased a 13,100-square-foot mansion in Hidden Hills for $23.7 million, or $1.3 million less than its asking price.

The chief operating officer of Calabasas-based Maverick Payments and his wife, Chantal, bought the new farmhouse-style estate at 5275 Round Meadow Road, according to the Robb Report.

The six-bedroom, eight bathroom estate, built last year on 1.4 acres, was listed in October at $24.995 million.

The two-story gabled mansion includes an expansive living room with a fireplace and automated walls of glass that open onto a covered terrace. 

An adjacent dining area connects to a gourmet kitchen, with two islands and top appliances. A formal dining room has a temperature-controlled wine wall encased in glass.

The home includes a bookshelf-lined office, soundproof movie theater, gym and steam shower, lounge with a seated bar.

Upstairs, a master bedroom has a stone fireplace, with a sitting area that flows onto a balcony. It has “room-sized” closets, a luxe soaking tub, plus dual vanities and showers.

The grounds, dotted with mature oaks, has an infinity-edge pool with an oversized Baja shelf, with a spa next to an open-air cabana. An attached garage holds four cars.

Broker Marc Shevin of Douglas Elliman held the listing. Brokers Nicole Tekiela and Dennis Chernov of The Agency represented the buyers.   

At age 29, Griefer was recognized as one of the Electronic Transactions Association’s 40 under 40 extraordinary payments executives last year.

In the gated celebrity haven of Hidden Hills, the couple join neighbors including Kris and Khloe Kardashian, Matt Stafford, Lori Loughlin, Jessica Simpson, French Montana and Tristan Thompson, according to Robb.

In December, Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matt Stafford bought a 15,000-square-foot hilltop mansion in Hidden Hills for $28 million, a local record. But the brokers on the deal are now locked in a legal fight over a commission payout.
