Nicknamed the “Pyrenees Castle,” the walled and gated 8,686-square-foot Alhambra, California, home sits on 2.5 hilltop acres with 360-degree views of the San Gabriel Valley, according to the listing with Hilton & Hyland.
Sylvester Dupuy originally built the home in 1925 with inspiration from castles he’d seen while living in France. It was later divided into apartments in the 1940s and remodeled in the 1980s, the Los Angeles Times reported. Spector paid $1.1 million for the property in 1998.
