'Beverly Hillbillies' house for sale

$350M home is most expensive in country

The home that appeared in "The Beverly Hillbillies" is for sale -- and is the most expensive house on the market in the U.S.

The 18th-century French chateau in Bel Air, Los Angeles, has long been known as the Clampett TV family's residence, but is now attracting buzz for its $350 million price tag, Vanity Fair and Today reported. 

According to Vanity Fair, the show's producers filmed on the property, then owned by Beverly Wilshire hotelier Arnold Kirkeby, for $500 a day. Though, most of the scenes were filmed on replica sets of the interior and rear of the house.

Most recently, it was owned by the late Univision CEO, Jerry Prenchio, who bought the building from Kirkeby in 1986 for $13.5 million. At the time, it was the second most expensive home sold in Los Angeles history, Los Angeles Magazine reported.

The listing details the 25,000-square-foot mansion's decadent amenities, such as 10 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a ballroom, a wine cellar and a period-paneled dining room, Today reported.
