A lavish mansion that has been sitting on the market since 2015 recently upped its price after a change of broker and the installation of more ornate finishes. Originally listed at $72 million, the 28,000 square-foot residence currently sits on the market at $80 million under the watchful eye of top L.A. broker Sam Real of Nest Seekers International.
Albert Elkouby, developer and CEO of the high-end jacket company JH Design, owns the spacious spread that is currently one of the most expensive homes for sale in America.
With space for 50 cars to park in the driveway and an additional 16-spot underground parking garage, this abode was made for hosting Gatsby-like parties.
Along with 11 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms, the estate located at 901 North Alpine Drive boasts a European spa with wet and dry saunas and a 3,000 square-foot ballroom with 30 foot ceilings.
To bring the price up to $80 million confidently, the seasoned agent and Elkouby brought in the best of the best of both craftsmanship and materials, spending $5 million of the owner’s money in the process.
The house stuns with chandeliers imported from Italy, Calacatta Gold Italian marble and multiple works from the renowned artist Daniel Maltzman. The 1.5 acres of land the château sits on also got a facelift and is immaculately manicured as it waits for a buyer.
Dark wood is surrounded by white ceilings, floors, and countertops. The contrast creates a traditional yet fresh kitchen aesthetic.
