  • James Jannard listed a Beverly Hills compound for $68 million shortly after his record Malibu sale.

  • The Oakley founder recently set a record with a $210 million Malibu mansion sale, surpassing Jay-Z.

  • Forbes estimates Jannard's net worth to be $1.3 billion.

Just days after making a record-breaking Malibu mansion sale for $210 million, James Jannard is back with another mammoth listing.

The sunglasses mogul, who founded Oakley, just put his Beverly Hills, California, cement compound up for sale at $68 million, as first reported by Realtor.com.

Jannard recently surpassed Jay-Z and Beyoncé to claim the title of California's most expensive home real-estate sale, and Forbes estimates his net worth at $1.3 billion.

After starting Oakley in 1975, Jannard eventually sold the company 32 years later for $2.1 billion to the Italian company Luxottica. He later founded the digital cinema camera company Red Digital Cinema before retiring in 2019.

Inspired by Stonehenge, according to Wallpaper, the cavernous manor includes floor-to-ceiling windows and oversize columns. Jeff Vance, the owner of the architecture firm iDGroup, designed acoustic panels to remove echo and create a cozier living experience despite its cold appearance.
