INSIDE EDITION Tours Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mansion Where Scandal Took Place
It's the spectacular estate where Arnold Schwarzenegger came home to two women—his wife, Maria Shriver, and his maid, Patty Baena.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver purchased the Pacific Palisades mansion when they got married in 1986 and lived there for 16 years. They hired Baena as their housekeeper to clean their seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom home, and also cook for their growing family.
INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret toured the property with realtor Rodrigo Iglesias of Hilton and Highland Realty.
In the master bedroom, Baena reportedly climbed into bed with Schwarzenegger after Shriver left for work. In 1997, they conceived a child. The front page of today's New York Daily News blares, "In Her Bed!"
The mansion is beautiful. Each room is more luxurious than the next. The backyard is a family's dream come true, with a pool, a tennis court, and a duck pond.
And the maid's quarters, where Baena sometimes slept overnight, has now been converted into a mother-in-law apartment by the current owner. They put it on the market for $23.5 million.
The mansion is less than 10 miles from Schwarzenegger and Shriver's sprawling Brentwood estate, where they moved in 2002. It was purchased from Paris Hilton's grandfather, Barron Hilton.
The Schwarzeneggers poured $3.5 million into renovations including a new tennis court, an elevator was added, and garages were converted to studies, among dozens of other improvements.
Now, Shriver's memories of the home where she started her married life and raised four children must surely be tainted with heartbreak.
