When BCBG founder Max Azria and his wife Lubov bought their Holmby Hills home Maison du Soleil in 2005, the $14.5 million estate was already a piece of Los Angeles lore. The 30,000-square-foot “bungalow” in the exclusive Westside neighborhood was one of the classic, sprawling Hollywood estates built in the 1930s by Paul Williams—architect to the stars, including Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball.

The fashion royals have painstakingly glamorized all 17 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, and everything else across their 3-acre kingdom. Within the main house, the rooms showcase provocative pop art, custom lighting, and tailored furnishings. A floor-to-ceiling crystal waterfall chandelier makes a splash in the foyer, and a domed ceiling covered in gold leaf sets the 2,500-square-foot office apart. Dressing areas in the master suite could be counted as bedrooms for their enormity.

Just walking around the mansion would burn ample daily calories, the perfect excuse to raid the walk-in refrigerator in the kitchen or the popcorn bar in the 6,000-square-foot cinema. Among five backyard gardens (French, Japanese, English, Moroccan, and herb) is a guesthouse, a Moroccan hammam, a pool, a greenhouse-converted gym, and a tennis court with an elevated viewing suite. The Azrias reportedly spent $30 million putting their mark on the home and currently have it listed for $85 million. (Inquiries: The Agency, Jaime Cuevas, 424.400.5909; theagencyre.com)
