A massive new mansion above the Sunset Strip listed for $43.9 million is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®.
If the 20,000-square-foot abode in Los Angeles looks familiar, it’s because it was featured on the Netflix reality show “Selling Sunset.” The show stars broker Jason Oppenheim, president and founder of the Oppenheim Group, and his cadre of real estate agents.
“It is done and it’s fabulous,” says Oppenheim of the finished product.
Oppenheim, who holds the listing, notes that the owner bought two adjacent lots (totaling about a half-acre) and then built the extra-large residence. However, the owner decided to live elsewhere and never moved in.
“It was built for him,” the agent says, “which is why you have this epic quality that you wouldn’t see in a spec home.”
The huge build on a relatively small plot of land is no longer allowed by local zoning. “It’ll be the last one of its kind,” Oppenheim says.

Spa with massage tables and plunge pools
Atrium and garage
Designed by the South Africa–based agency SAOTA and completed this year, the enormous home features five beds and nine baths. The layout includes automated sliding glass doors, which expand the living space outside.
Along with outdoor seating and dining areas, there’s a 175-foot linear pool with a waterfall cascading into an atrium garden. There’s also a 15-foot outdoor TV that rises from the ground and can rotate in any direction to be visible to every room in the house.
The dramatic roof deck measures “several thousand feet.” On the show, it’s claimed to be “the largest roof deck in the Hills.” Other highlights include four spas, an elevator, home theater, and curated wine cellar.
The spacious garage has plenty of room to hold a car collection, and the master suite includes a giant closet that would set any fashionista’s heart racing.
As “Selling Sunset” viewers will recall from the series, power lines initially marred the view from the home, but no longer. The owner apparently spent almost $1 million to have them moved underground.
“The view is unrivaled from any home that I’ve seen in my life,” Oppenheim says. “It is legitimately 300 degrees.”
If you love the look of the home, you can have that too. The furniture is available for an additional $1.1 million, bringing the total price tag to $45 million. You’re worth it!
