Hong Kong-based gaming tycoon turned Hollywood film financier Chris Parker has sold his Bel Air mansion in an off-market deal, property records reveal. The AsianLogic co-founder’s big real estate gamble paid off — the $26 million sale price is a full 40% more than the $18.5 million he paid for the estate in 2014. Records reveal the spendy buyers are Adam Fisher, co-founder of the hedge fund CommonWealth Opportunity Capital and a former portfolio manager at George Soros’ Soros Fund Management, and his wife Haley, a former actress.
Back in 2014, the 12,500 sq. ft. villa was essentially all-new, complete with 7 bedrooms and 11 baths in grandly-scaled European architecture. Set privately behind tall iron gates and a long driveway at the end of a discreet cul-de-sac, the hilltop house offers an infinity-edged swimming pool overlooking the perennially exclusive Bel Air Country Club.
Notable amenities include hand-laid oak hardwood flooring throughout the structure, and dozens of steel windows and doors, all of which open to lush grounds with impressive lawns, formal gardens, and patio space for large-scale entertaining. There’s also a massive living room with a coffered ceiling and fireplace, a master bedroom with another fireplace and private terrace, a home theater, and a three-car attached garage. A substantial circular motorcourt anchored by a large fountain has space for more than a dozen additional vehicles.
With gaming veterans Tom Hall and Kan Tang, Parker founded the AsianLogic group in 2002, a firm with offices in Hong Kong and Manila that has since grown to become the world’s largest online gaming company. In 2018, with the help of former Weinstein Company producer Dylan Sellers, he set up Limelight Productions, a Brentwood-based film financing outfit of which he serves as Chairman and Partner. Among other projects, Limelight and Parker have produced the 2020 romantic comedy “Palm Springs.”
