Sky high prices for luxury homes in Beverly Hills, California is nothing new. But recently, a new luxury real estate listing appeared for an eye popping $135 million. It’s a luxury mansion formerly owned by comedian Danny Thomas.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the luxury mansion sits on 2-1/2 acres of land and is part of Trousdale Estates in Southern California.
The luxury home is approximately 18,000 square-foot in size and features eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The homes’ architectural design was Moorish inspired. Viewing some of the photos and you know that the next owner will be living in ultimate, VIP style.
Due to it’s location, this luxury mansion provides 360 degree views of the entire Los Angeles area. The incredible view from the home’s expansive balcony (see photo below) is stunning. Due its elevation, you will have privacy not found in other parts of Beverly Hills.
The luxury home is being listed by real estate agent Aaron Kirman, who is president of Aaroe Estates, part of the John Aaroe Group. When asked to describe the lavish interior, Kirman was quoted, “The décor has a specific market, but the market that likes it, loves it. There is a market for people who love ornate detail.”
Although we don’t know the name of the current owner, he or she undertook an incredible renovation project and peeled back the home’s interior down to the studs, before remodeling it to its current, lavish state.
The home next door sold last year for a lofty $70 million. That luxury estate was purchased by the founder of Minecraft, Markus “Notch” Persson. Beverly Hills living is definitely a VIP lifestyle.
According to public records, Danny Thomas purchased the Trousdale Estates property way back in the late 1960s. The mansion was then built in 1970. Danny Thomas died form heart failure on February 6, 1991 at the age of 79. After Danny Thomas’ widow passed away in 2000, their children – including actress Marlo Thomas, then sold the property. Public records hsow the sale value was $15 million.
The property includes a beautiful swimming pool to relax, soak in that year-round SoCal sunshine and enjoy the panoramic, local views. Inside you’ll find large archways throughout the house, plus $2.5 million of chandeliers purchased by Jacques Garcia, who is a well known French architect and interior designer.
You can hold incredible social gatherings and parties in the indoor ballroom. Don’t worry but not having enough parking. There is space for up to 20 vehicles.
