Elevating the purpose of being a home owner, these Los Angeles estates are architectural masterpieces that deserve to not only be home to you, but also your extensive art collection.
The One in Bel Air has officially been deemed the United State's most expensive home on the market. Listed for $295 million, the oasis above the city awaits its next owner. The 105,000-square-foot home sitting on a 3.8-acre lot is truly a one-of-a-kind property. Placed atop a hill with a surrounding moat, it has all-encompassing views of downtown L.A., the ocean and the San Gabriel Mountains. Even with its impressive size of 21 bedrooms and 49 bathrooms, the designers meticulously ensured that the whole property flowed cohesively. Most importantly, The One is a grand piece of art itself, priming the interior as an opulent space for any great art collection.
Ranking in as one of the largest and most luxurious estates ever built, the home has every amenity you could ever dream of and more. From the five pools, full salon and spa, 10,000 square-foot sky deck, 40-seat private theater, bowling alley, glass-walled 40-foot track and nightclub, The One truly has it all. The home floating above the city will be auctioned by listing agents Rayni and Branden Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates and Aaron Kirman of Compass. For more information about this unique architectural feat, check out The Beverly Hills Estates website.
The One finds company as an art collector's dream house in the Holmby Hills home once owned by Eva Chow.
"Built by a world-class art collector and inspired by the Reina Sofia museum in Madrid, The Chow residence took 9 years to build and is a work of art in itself," explained listing agent Tomer Fridman. "The 30,000 square-foot home inspired by the timeless museum is the only suitable place to hang your personal collection of art."
The expansive $65 million-home pays homage to the 16th and 17th centuries through its Florentine carved ceilings and 400-year-old Moorish columns throughout the 30-foot entryway. Unsurprisingly, everything in the house is stunning. Even the Art Deco library has been deemed “The Finest Room in LA”.
This personal sanctuary is a unique combination of art and lifestyle. The estate features a gallery, a three-story guesthouse, an outdoor ballroom, 1.1 acres of lushly decorated outdoor space, a theater, underground parking and an entertainment complex.
In addition to Fridman of The Fridman Group, this masterpiece of architecture and design is listed by Drew Fenton of Hilton and Hyland and Carl Gambino of Compass.
