Indonesian Heiress Goes Ultra-Sleek With $20 Million Beverly Hills Mansion

Adinda Bakrie, a socialite and member of one of Indonesia's wealthiest families, and her American husband Vinny Di Lucia were the buyers who recently forked out nearly $21 million for a strikingly contemporary house in the Flats neighborhood of Beverly Hills, property records indicate. The spendy transfer was first reported by The Real Deal.

Built on speculation in 2020, the nearly 11,000-square-foot mansion flaunts a sleekly elegant, hard-edged look that verges on austerity. It also sits on a piece of history — the half-acre property was once owned by Zeppo Marx, the youngest of the Marx Brothers, who lived there with his then-wife Barbara; following the couple's split, Barbara moved out and eventually became Frank Sinatra's final wife. The midcentury house was also long owned by "Columbo" music composter John Cacavas.

In 2016, Cacavas' estate sold the property for $7.4 million to a wealthy local family. The former Marx house was subsequently razed, and the current structure erected in its stead. Completed in 2020, the contemporary manse was put up for sale at $23.5 million but eventually leased out to Bakrie before she agreed to a purchase deal.

Nestled behind gates and high hedges, the new house features charcoal gray stone floors, numerous contemporary light fixtures and high ceilings throughout. Amenities are numerous — there's a living room with two separate wine display closets, both of them entirely glass and temperature-controlled, plus two kitchens with state-of-the-art appliances, a sports court and a movie theater equipped with a pool table.

Also on tap are an elevator, a gym, a backyard plunge pool and upstairs master suite with dual bathrooms, dual dressing rooms, a sitting area and even a dedicated massage room. There's also a huge private balcony, accessible from the master suite, serviced by a convenient wet bar.

The Bakries may be virtually unknown in the U.S., but they've been business moguls in Indonesia for decades. Their Bakrie Group family holding company controls corporations with major stakes in telecommunications, oil and gas, mining, real estate development and media. Together, the various family members are worth in the hundreds of millions, perhaps even billions.
