Tech entrepreneur Halsey Minor is selling his Los Angeles mansion as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.

The mansion, 822 Sarbonne Road in Bel Air in Los Angeles, has 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.

The home was built in 1964 and coming in at about 7,479 square feet, according to real estate website Trulia.

Minor’s mansion is selling for $14.9 million after he bought it for $20 million in 2006.

The home is described as a gated home sitting on a cliff with “unobstructed, panoramic city and ocean views.”

“The four-bedrooms, six-bathroom home was originally designed by famed Mid-Century architect Richard Dorman and built in 1964 — but move-in ready, it is not. According to the listing, the home has come into disrepair. So if you’re looking for a contemporary estate in a prime location in Los Angeles to fix up, look no further.”

Minor founded tech news agency CNET in 1993, and sold it to CBS for $1.7 billion in 2008. But he didn’t manage his money well and filed for bankruptcy in May.
