Holy Moly!!!!!!!! We just saw Richard Kurtz’s $68 million Alpine, NJ mansion hit the market for a mind numbing $68,000,000. Well, another massive mega-mansion has hit the market with a similar asking price – $68,500,000!!

It just finished completion and boasts 9 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.

The owner of the home is C. Frederick Wehba Sr. He is the founder of Bentley Forbes, a national real estate investment firm. I guess he, like all other mega-mansion owners, put the home up for sale because it is just too big for him and his family.

The home has stone floors, 24k gold door and window hardware, a massive marble foyer with grand double marble staircase, an elevator, a home gym with spa, two full kitchens, five coffee bars, seven fireplaces, a huge music room, subterranean parking, a tennis court, and a swimming pool with pool house.

  • I have to bring up a hard fact here. “Too much house” really means: “SINCE CREDIT HAS ALL BUT DRIED UP, WE ARE NOW SCARED ABOUT THE FUTURE AND MUST START THE PROCESS OF MARKETING OUR HOME” in 99% of all cases. When we start seeing 68 million to 150 million dollar homes come on the market more & more, it means the economy is getting worse & worse. Vacation homes have sold first, primary homes are last on the list! I am a 48 yr. old former Realtor and have never seen things as bad as they are today.

    Millionaires and Billionaires have a Mantra: “Never too much house” (even if they are single – I can quote singles who live in 30,000 sq. ft. homes) I don’t want to be a party pooper – but Greece is just the beginning of a huge topple. Our Government has been keeping things going, but cannot do it forever! So I hope some of you invent the next Facebook or find Unobtanium on this planet! 🙂

      Agree totally–you don’t build this house then suddenly decide you don’t need it. You start building it in 2006-2007 when the Dow was soaring toward 14,000 plus and hedge fund and derivative trading was creating hundreds of billions dollars off of leveraged debt. Then you watch in horror as the whole thing falls apart in 2008, just as the house was taking shape. Then you watch the market recover because of the U.S. govt printing money, but you know deep down that 2007 is over. I’m not saying this guy is broke–he isn’t. But he isn’t “creating” money the way he was a few years ago. So it’s time to bail.

      Hi Brett……..Former Agent here too, in southeastern Michigan, specifically Grosse Pointe Farms…maybe you’ve heard of it? I COULD NOT POSSIBLY agree with you more, and would really love to stay in touch with you and “talk” more about it, if you’re interested. I could on & on & on about what you wrote, and I do NOT exaggerate. My e-mail is “bsn1@comcast.net”…..please write, you wont’ be sorry. And, as far as this Vanderbilt Mansion copy is concerned, aren’t you (just like me) ETERNALLY ASTOUNDED at multi-millionaire and billionaires EGO, HUBRIS AND literally PSYCHOTIC GREED! Just when I think I couldn’t be ANY more amazed and disgusted….HERE they come with yet MORE literally absurd “museums/airports/747-hangers-disguised-as-homes”, in THIS DAY & AGE, yet!?!?!? Continually takes my breath away! (Breathe, breathe 🙂

    It’s interesting from the outside and reminds me of Marble House in Newport. The inside is just too over the top to me. 24K door and window hardware? I realize there’s some practicality in that gold doesn’t tarnish, but that’s definitely extravagant.

    I’m not sure how many people are in the market for a $68 million house, but there can’t be that many. There are plenty of properties out there for $50 million and up, and they’re not selling very quickly. I’m not sure what makes anyone think that dumping another huge house at an astronomical price onto the market is going to help the market.

    Yeah, a lot of billionaires aren’t suffering too much in this economy, but they’re also hanging onto their money more than they used to. While they can still afford a $68 million house, they’re not wanting to maintain it. Heating and cooling a house the size of a small hotel takes a lot of money, especially when there are high ceilings creating an even larger volume. I’ll be curious to see how long this stays on the market.

    The owner probably heard about mohammed hadids home selling for 50 million and her thought he could sell his home too.

    I prefer this location over the New Jersey location, but I like the Jersey house way more than this one, funny how that works.

      Funny how that works. Let’s see now….

      House A is the house I want.
      House B has all the land
      House C has the amazing view
      House D is in the right neighborhood
      House E has the low taxes

      Guess we will just keep looking. LOL

    well, the PERFECT mansion still must be build ( by me after earning my first billion -:) )… you can`t be 100% satisfied, there will be always compromises nevertheless how much you`re worth.

    i don`t like the style of the foyer, i mean the materials are great, but it looks too open and wide, like the entrance of a big museum.

    also i hate this green colour .;) and i think with gold you have to be very careful: if you place the gold right and not too much of it, it can look elegant and luxurious…but the border to a negative look is very thin…but this is a question of taste.

    well, one think i forgot: it`s too pricy ( $ 20 mio-$ 25 mio).

    This house is gross. Exterior is beautiful the interior is just way over done.

    The price is ridiculous… $68 m in an ornate over the top house and they put what looks like a cheap fire escape railing on the grand staircase? WTF?

    I was in LA two weeks ago and couldn’t help myself. I drove onto the grounds of the house and walked right on in! no one said a word despite the fact that the house was almost done. let me tell you- this house is bananas awesome! like someone mentioned above, it is modeled after Marble House as well as another Newport manse I can’t recall the name of. if any house in BH is worth this much- this is it. the acreage and location on Sunset are the only drawbacks I saw. Also gave myself a tour of the house next door. it’s nowhere near the league of this one, although it does have a ballroom. I’d call it McMansion Deluxe

      JASON!!!!…………OMG OMG!!! I’d have KILLED to be with you! You LUCKY BASTARD! GOD…..and you didn’t get stopped by ANYone?? AMAZING….just goes to show that if you ACT like you belong there, DON’T look like your average, slobbed-out, fat-ass American and are quiet & cool about it, you can TOTALLY bluff your way into & out of more places & situations that you could’ve ever dreamed of. I’m BIG time jealous! I agree with everyone else, that while this place is VERY reminiscent of Marble House, and it is classically & entirely exquisite, it DOES feel like look exactly like one of the Vanderbilt mansions, along with EVERY bit of their razor-edged, starched-collar, SEVERE formality, unimaginable elegance, and overwhelming grandeur. I cannot imagine ever feeling truly comfortable & relaxed in this “museum-as-home” PALACE. But WHAT I wouldn’t have done to be with you then! Way To Go……YOU DA’ MAN!

            haha! it’s not all that hard. you just have to not be intimidated when you do it. I live in Texas, but used to live in CA so I know my way around. the first time I drove by there were two Benzs. never go in when the owners/representatives/designers are around. they are more hard nosed. it also helps that I’m legitamely an architecture student so I can use that angle when I go “take a peek”. just ask for the job supervisor and you more than likely can walk to the place alone or with them. I probably “toured” 20 or so mansions in Bev Hills, Holmby Hills, Brentwood and BelAir while I was in town. You just can’t act like a slack jawed yokel and take pictures either. =( in the pics above the entry hall looks beyond over the top-and it is- but it’s more restrained in person. I think all the marlbe, brass fittings and mirrors give it a Vegas look in pictures. as for the gold hinges- they are probably Sherle Wagner or P.E. Guerin and look to be 5 lbs apiece! for hinges! the entire east wing on the second floor is the master area with seperate baths, closets and personal offices. it is all very formal, but it’s more of an entertainment palace for big events. it includes a full restaurant quality kitchen in the basement w/dumbwaiter for large parties. I can’t wait for more pics to come available- I was not able to take my own. =(

    Beautiful exterior but the interior definitely still needs a lot of work and isn’t quite to my taste. Also the price is too high, but that’s standard for LA I guess
