An olive-tree-lined stretch of pavement leads the way to Palazzo di Amore—a 25-acre Mediterranean estate in Beverly Hills. Listed at $149 million, the palatial getaway—which was lavishly renovated by the current owner and real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene—is the most expensive property currently on the market in Los Angeles. With 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, and a plethora of entertaining spaces that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests, the swanky estate is the ultimate space for someone who loves to throw parties. Adding to the fun is a 50-seat cinema; a 150-car parking garage; a brick wine cellar that can hold up to 3,000 bottles; an on-site vineyard; and a 15,000-square-foot entertainment complex complete with a disco that features a revolving dance floor, a DJ booth, and a laser-light system.
While contemporary and lively, the 35,000-square-foot villa also boasts marble floors, colonnades, curved twin staircases, and hand-painted ceilings, effortlessly combining Old World charm with modern amenities, including a massive 5,000-square-foot master suite, a Turkish hammam with imported Moroccan tiles, and a chef’s kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator that has ample space for freshly picked produce from the property’s two-acre organic farm. Additional outdoor amenities are a 128-foot reflecting pool that overlooks the Beverly Hills skyline, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and a barbecue station.
