Now, confess – did you watch all 12 seasons of Million Dollar Listing? And how about all of Selling Sunset, too? So did we. Perfectly balanced between reality TV and pure escapism, these shows have captivated audiences in a huge way. And no wonder: the homes are beautiful, the gossip is fascinating (we do love a bi of celebrity gossip – sorry, not sorry). And now there's a chance to feast your eyes on the glorious Beverly Hills mansion that featured in the final episode of Million Dollar Listing LA Season 12.

This house (opens in new tab) oozes pure Hollywood class. It's one of the original Hollywood celebrity villas, built in the ever-popular Spanish style in 1926 for the legendary actor John Barrymore. This is Hollywood excess as it should be done: seven bedrooms, eleven baths, pools and fountains, and a cigar lounge (of course there's a cigar lounge).
The master bedroom features a terrace with wraparound views of the city, and there are many more terraces with beautiful views, a wine cellar, decks, original tile, wrought iron and a painted ceiling in the main living room.
Most intriguingly, though, this house includes...an opium den. Yes, this was a thing in the 1920s acting world: Barrymore would enjoy in opium eating with his friends in a room filled with cushions. It's a lot more sedate than what's gone on in celeb homes in the decades since, but still – how naughty. John Barrymore's mansion is listed for $15.9 million.
