David Copley's "Foxhole" mansion on sale for $7.95 million
15,300 square feet, nine full baths, three half-baths.
Former Union-Tribune publisher and owner David Copley, who died at age 60, in the 1970s built a small home and then began expanding it. It grew into a 15,300 square foot mansion with seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and three half-baths, along with high ceilings, chandeliers and party room. Copley named it "Foxhole" after Foxhill, the spread owned by his late mother, Helen Copley. Now it is for sale for $7.95 million, according to the publication Realty Today. Five former Copley properties have now been listed for a total asking price of nearly $20 million, according to Realty Today. The publication expects Foxhill to hit the market soon. Adjoining acreage went on the market some time ago.
