With a list price large enough to make a billionaire’s eyes water, currently listed at $160 million, one of America’s most expensive homes, Villa Firenze, will go to auction with no reserve and no minimum bid. Insulated on 10 acres in Beverly Park, the most exclusive part of Beverly Hills, it is the most expensive U.S. home ever to go to auction.
Naturally, such an expensive home would be located in L.A.’s most expensive neighborhood. Not only is Beverly Park guard-gated at the north and south entrances, there are gates within the community as well as gates to each residence—some with private guards. Denzel Washington, Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg and more red-carpet regulars and business moguls call Beverly Park home.
With land scarce in most wealthy L.A. neighborhoods, that isn’t the case in Beverly Park — lot sizes come in acres rather than square feet. Encompassing 28,660 square feet, Villa Firenze houses 13 bedrooms, 17 full baths and eight half baths. Outstanding features include huge windows, large Old World-style replaces, coffered ceilings and wide-arched walk-throughs. The exquisitely landscaped motor court is surrounded by exotic 40-foot Canary Island palm trees, a central landscaped fountain, and has parking for up to 30 cars. Opening to a grand foyer, the area beyond contains 20,000 square feet of formal entertaining space. The grounds contain a two-story guest house, huge pool pavilion with pool house, and a tennis court. There is a jogging/ walking trail around the perimeter of the property. Grassy lawns, water features, rose gardens and multiple verandas for outdoor entertaining assure activities for everyone.
One of America’s most expensive mansions, currently listed at $160 million, will be auctioned by Concierge Auctions in cooperation with agents Jeff Hyland and Rick Hilton of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills. Visit TopTenRealEstateDeals.com for more celebrity home news and celebrity home video tours.
