Eric Schmidt, the billionaire executive chairman of Google, has bought the Veronique and Gregory Peck estate in the Westside area of Los Angeles for $22 million.

Set on 1.3 acres, the 1930s French château sits at the end of a long driveway and is surrounded by a flat lawn, mature trees and lush gardens.

The neighbors include heiress Petra Ecclestone, White House interior designer Michael Smith and the Playboy Mansion.

Designed for grand-scale entertaining, the 9,182 square feet of living space features the original marble-walled foyer, vaulted ceilings, formal dining and living rooms, an office, a bar, four fireplaces, seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

French doors throughout the house open to patio space and a swimming pool.

Schmidt, 58, was worth an estimated $8.3 billion last year, according to Forbes, ranking him No. 138 on the magazine’s list of the richest people in the world.
