The Los Angeles real estate market is pricey, we know, but luxury properties are on a whole other level of over-the-top lavishness with eye-popping price tags to match.
With the help of Estately, we’ve rounded up the 26 most expensive properties on the market right now, and put them on display here. From spec mansions with bonkers amenities, to glamorous Old Hollywood estates, to a “house” with its own 250-person ballroom, we present the most expensive listings in LA right now.
Pungent with that new-mansion smell, this recently completed Bel Air estate is the nation’s most expensive home for sale, with a price tag of $250 million. The 38,000-square-foot home holds 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, an auto gallery, and the helicopter from the 1980s TV show Airwolf .
The estate was developed by handbag mogul Bruce Makowsky, who was also the developer of the luxurious party pad that Minecraft creator Markus Persson paid $70 million for back in 2014.
Coming in at No. 2 and priced at a whopping $200 million is The Manor, a 56,000-square-foot, 123-room mansion built by television producer Aaron and Candy Spelling. Current owner Petra Ecclestone, a Formula One racing heiress, purchased the house in 2011. She paid $85 million in cash for the incredible estate, which sits on 4.7 acres in Holmby Hills.
This Holmby Hills mansion owned by fashion designer Max Azria measures roughly 30,000 square feet, and has a nice Old Hollywood connection: It was originally designed in the 1930s by architect-to-the-stars and 2017 AIA Gold Medalist Paul R. Williams.
The estate has been updated by Azria and his wife since buying it in 2005. It’s reported that the couple spent $30 million on renovations and upgrades to the house, which now includes a dramatic crystal chandelier in the entrance. It’s listed for $88 million.
