Taylor Thomson, the heiress to the publishing house that… Bloomberg ranks as the 282nd richest person in the world, has listed her Tudor-style mansion in Bel-Air for $43 million.

In terms of profits, the listing is about as ambitious as they come. When she gets her prize, it will be nearly six times the $7.4 million she paid for the historic estate two decades ago.

Thomson landed in Pacific Palisades this year, dropping $48.67 million on vice co-founder Shane Smith’s Mediterranean-style complex in a deal that set a record for the coastal community. Her family owns Woodbridge Co., which owns a majority stake in the media conglomerate Thomson Reuters.

According to the listing, the 1926 mansion is one of Bel-Air’s oldest homes (which is true because Bel-Air was founded three years earlier). It was built by Gordon Kaufmann, the prolific architect whose other works include the Hoover Dam, the Greystone Mansion, and the Los Angeles Times Building in downtown LA

The stately mansion sits on an acre surrounded by plane trees and oaks and has a half-timbered facade of ivy-covered stone. The interior has been restored in recent years and includes a formal living room with a large fireplace, a wood-panelled library under vaulted ceilings, a massage room with a sauna, and a gourmet kitchen with floor-to-ceiling tiles.

Tile continues up the stairs and into the Moroccan-inspired primary suite, which has a copper tub in the master bedroom. In total, the main house and the two-storey guest house make up eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms in an area of ​​8800 square meters. Outside, the green grounds add rolling lawns, patios and a swimming pool.

Bloomberg estimates Thomson’s net worth at $8.85 billion.

Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Realty is listed with Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.
