The Clampett Mansion from the classic television series “The Beverly Hillbillies” can be found in the upscale Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. Known as the Chartwell Mansion, the property has also been featured in such films as “Cinderfella,” “Over The Top,” “Armed and Dangerous,” “Disorderlies” and “High Society.” A neighboring home once owned by Ronald and Nancy Reagan was later purchased and incorporated into the same estate in 2016.
Aside from some remodeling to the roof, the exterior otherwise still appears very similar to how it did on the show. Interiors for the show were filmed at the former General Services Studios, now known as Sunset Las Palmas Studios (1040 N Las Palmas Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038). In 2019, the house sold once again for around $150 million, which according to the L.A. Times, set a record for the highest price of any home in California history.
Like many homes in the neighborhood, walls and hedges line the perimeter, eliminating any visibility from the street. The surrounding roads, which are narrow and do not allow street parking, are located near Hotel Bel-Air, with regular traffic through the streets. There are cameras peppered along every street and property, with construction crews, landscapers and security in abundance. It is a difficult spot to photograph, even managing aerial photography was a challenge. In spite of the many obstacles, here is the Clampett home, as it appears now.
LOCATION: 750 Bel Air Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90077
