An enormous French Chateau-style house in Beverly Hills designed by “King of the Megamansion” Richard Landry has sold for $32 million, the highest publicly recorded sale in the gated community this year, records show.
Built in 2009, the 22,906-square-foot home is at the heart of a two-plus-acre compound that includes a tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a large motor court. Designed for large-scale entertaining, it features large formal areas, a ballroom and a brick wine vault. The movie theater is Moroccan themed.
There are 10 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms throughout, including an enormous master suite with an expansive terrace, soaring ceilings with intricate crown molding, and well-appointed his & her closets and bathrooms. Built with the highest standards, the ornate wood panelled office and library features a glass floor that reveals a 2500 bottle wine cellar below.
The buyer is timepiece entrepreneur John Simonian, the founder and owner of luxury watch company Westime, according to sources not authorized to comment publicly on the deal.
