BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - For $165 million, you can own a home with a lot of history.

The mansion in Beverly Hills, California, once belonged to publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. It is now back on the market and is believed to be the nation's most expensive residential listing.

Hearst bought the mansion in 1947 for about $120,000. The 1920s-era, pink stucco estate is shaped like the letter H and is spread across 6.5 acres north of Sunset Boulevard.

It now features 29 bedrooms, three swimming pools, a movie theater, a disco and a separate residence for the security staff.

John F. Kennedy and his bride, Jacqueline, spent part of their honeymoon at the estate in 1953 and later used it as the West Coast headquarters for Kennedy's presidential campaign.

It also was featured in the movie, "The Godfather."
