A 1-acre estate located in an iconic Los Angeles gated community is on the market for $48.5 million. For this money, the buyer will receive a mansion with an area of 1,600 square meters, framed by a cypress alley, the amenities of a five-star hotel and a 24-hour patrol service.
The community of Beverly Park is in the mountains above Beverly Hills and adjacent to Mulholland Drive. It occupies an area of 125 hectares, divided into two parts. Around 60 households make up North Beverly Park, which is a highly landscaped parkland area where each estate is guaranteed complete privacy.
The house for sale has been owned by a family of businessmen since 1997, when it was purchased for $9 million. Blending French Baroque style with West Coast glamor, this nine-bedroom palace features antique crystal chandeliers, seven fireplaces, etched glass doors, marble floors and gilded ceilings. It combines a spacious foyer, numerous rooms for relaxation and entertaining, several living rooms and a formal dining room, a billiard room, a luxurious home theater, a wine cellar and exercise room, and a huge and well-equipped country-style kitchen. The master bedroom has an attached study, double closet, two baths with sauna and steam shower.
On the adjacent territory there is a swimming pool surrounded by a well-kept lawn, a solarium, several pavilions for relaxation, a guest house, a summer kitchen, and a lighted tennis court. The mansion is adjacent to the huge estate of Rod Stewart, which he is selling for $80 million, and Denzel Washington. Also living nearby are several members of the Saudi royal family, Adele, who bought a house from Silvastre Stallone, Sofia Vergara, billionaire businessmen Bruce Makowski and Russell Weiner, and several professional athletes, including Barry Bonds and Magic Johnson.
