Every inch of the 28,000-square-foot baroque beauty is lavish and ornate, mixing classic elements with modern comforts to create a home residents will be reluctant to leave. Set on a picturesque plot in a quiet, tree-lined section of Beverly Hills, the newly constructed estate is equipped with 10 bedrooms (including two in the backyard guesthouse) and 18 baths.
Showcasing a massive skylight, an Italian-designed crystal chandelier, 32-foot ceilings, and two stairways, the jaw-dropping foyer redefines the concept of a grand entrance and sets the stage for the remainder of the home. Spread across 2,300 square feet, the master suite features hardwood floors, a fireplace, and his-and-hers closets and baths. Formal living areas sport fireplaces, hardwood floors, and crystal chandeliers.
On the lower level, an indoor swimming pool is situated next to a European spa with wet and dry saunas. Additional entertainment options include a game room, screening room, and grand ballroom complete with a fireplace, a skylight, and stunning chandeliers. And for those automotive enthusiasts, a 40-car garage can accommodate an entire collection. Outside, a fountain and landscaped lawn pay homage to France’s elaborate courtyard gardens.
The home has been listed for $80 million, making it one of the most expensive properties on the market in Los Angeles. (Inquiries: Nest Seekers International. Sam Real, 310,278.8861.)
