The property once belonged to comedian and philanthropist Danny Thomas in Beverly Hills’ exclusive Trousdale Estates neighborhood has hit the market for $135 million. Thomas built the home in 1970 and later sold it for $15 million after his wife died in 2000. Now, if sold for asking, the property will take the title of being the most expensive home ever sold in Beverly Hills.
The 18,000-square-foot mansion sits on two-and-a-half acres surrounded by 360° views that sweep from downtown to the canyons and back. The 8-bedroom, 12-bathroom home is built with the finest materials. Designer details include gold leaf crown moldings, hand woven carpets and European details. The private grounds showcase the sunny swimmers pool, dining and viewing pavilions perfect for entertaining and enjoying the city view below.
Listing agent Aaron Kirman told Business Insider that this property is priced higher than others because of the panoramic views and acreage. The Wall Street Journal notes that listing agent Aaron Kirman sold a neighboring property to Swedish billionaire Markus Persson (who founded the game company Mojang and invented Minecraft) for a Beverly Hills record-breaking $70 million last year.
