Merv Griffin was a billionaire when he died five years ago, and he certainly lived like one.
The TV mogul’s equestrian estate in Southern California’s Coachella Valley has gone on the market for $9.5 million.

The big band singer-turned-talk show host became one of TV’s most successful producers, creating such iconic game shows as Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. A teen-oriented game show called Click! helped launch the career of Ryan Seacrest.
His 39-acre estate near Palm Springs was designed around his love of horses but was also lavish in human creature comforts.
The four-bedroom main house has marble floors and a 1,200 sq. ft living room. There are three guest houses, each with three or four bedrooms. There’s a 2.5 acre man-made lagoon with dock plus an infinity pool and spa.
The horse facilities include elaborate barns and a racetrack.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Griffin’s Beverly Hills estate hit the market earlier this year for just under $7 million.
