$35.5M Euro-Style Spec Mansion Is the Week’s Most Expensive New Listing


Set on an acre in L.A.’s tony Bel Air neighborhood, a contemporary estate available for $35.5 million is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. First offered last summer for $38.5 million, it’s back on the market and takes our top spot—even with its slightly discounted price tag.

The massive glass-and-stone structure brings a little bit of European flair to Los Angeles. The design is by “a very well-known architect in the U.K. named Laurence Quinn,” says listing agent James Harris with The Agency.

Finished last year, the residence takes full advantage of the golf course and city views with walls of glass and an expansive outdoor area that features a 65-foot infinity pool. “It really is magnificent,” Harris adds.

Architectural flourishes include 14-foot ceilings, a 25-foot entrance hall, as well as glass walls, travertine, and dark granite finishes.

Inside, the drama continues with a 40-foot atrium entry and floating staircase. The main level, which opens to the outdoors, features a great lounge, bar lounge, family room, and dining room.

Along with two guest suites, the second level features a 2,100-square-foot master suite with dual closets and a marble bath. The suite opens to a private terrace with its own spa, fire pit, and awe-inspiring views.

The glorious landscaped grounds include a grassy yard, additional water features, a jaw-dropping infinity pool wall, and a sitting area with a fire pit.

If you prefer your entertainment indoors, head to the mansion’s lower level with its suite of amenities. There’s a fitness center and yoga area, billiard and game lounge with a bar, a 500-bottle wine cellar, and home theater.

And if you can’t imagine how you’d go about decorating the nearly 15,000-square-foot masterpiece—no worries. For the sale price, the home comes furnished with high-end furniture from designers such as Minotti and MisuraEmme.

The international development group Estate Four is behind the spec project, according to Mansion Global. The land was purchased in 2012 for $6.59 million, and the old property was torn down to make way for a new—and fabulous—home.

Harris notes that the new price is to “get it sold.” With five showings lined up, he says, “We’ve had a very positive, very strong response.”
