Hidden high up in the hills of Beverly Hills lies 1201 Laurel Way, huge, glassy, insane mansion. This architectural masterpiece can be yours for $36 million. Presented in the most cinematic way possible, the entirety of Downtown Los Angeles, Catalina, and the coastline of California is offered in one unobstructed, sweeping view. The 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom house was inspired by the potential of the view, which results in open plan living, floor to ceiling windows and of course an infinity pool. The 11,000-square-foot hous also boasts stunning master suite with bar, screening room, 1,000-bottle wine cellar; and glass-walled, six-car garage. There’s also a 2,200-square-foot private deck with a fire feature and a six-person Jacuzzi hot tub.
Outside, there’s an infinity pool and another Jacuzzi. A guesthouse on the property has a gym as well as a bedroom, living room and built-in kitchenette. A balcony off the guesthouse has a fire pit and views of the city and the ocean.
Real-estate investor and developer Richard Papalian has put this true Jewel Box on the market. He bought the home in 2006, tore it down and spent four years building a new home on the property in a modern style. The home comes fully furnished, down to the bathroom towels. Mr. Papalian built it as a spec home. “I built the house to take advantage of what I thought was an extraordinary lot in Beverly Hills,” said Papalian.
