The 18,000-square-foot house is described as having a “Moorish design,” elaborately gold-leafed ceilings (which get a close-up in this video of the property), a bevy of arched windows, a ballroom, and intricate tile-work, as well as seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. What’s not mentioned is all the intensely patterned wallpaper, the frescoes, and, in what appears to the sitting room (which has a killer view, by the way), a painted ceiling depicting some randoms.
The gated, two-and-a-half-acre property sits on an arm of the land that juts out to provide privacy as well as spectacular, “360-degree views” of LA. It’s fronted by a motor court that has room for 20 cars “comfortably.” Aside from saying that it would be listed for more than “Notch” Persson’s $70-million pad (in part, because the Thomas property is almost twice as large), the listing agent declined to tell WSJ exactly how much the estate was asking. However, a few other agents familiar with the area’s luxury market said that it would be listed for $135 million.
