This 46,000+ square foot mega estate is currently on the drawing boards of the Biglin Architectural Group. It’s named Maison Colline and is going to be built in Beverly Hills, CA. It’s also named “Angelo Residence” on the project page, so I’m guessing that’s the owner’s first or last name. The pictures and text are a little small on the project page, so I’ll try my best to make out the square footage. The estate consists of a 36,000+ square foot main house, guardhouse, gym and spa building, club house and 2 guest houses.

    Angelo is the name of the street in beverly hills with the largest and most expensive homes in all of 90210. Most worth 100mill + . most likely the street placement, not the name of the person

    See, this is exactly what I meant when I said I HATE having multiple [useless] buildings on a single plot. TWO guesthouses? A gym/spa building? A guard house? Terrible terrible terrible.

    And as far as the renderings go, it looks VERY compact. The garage is fantastic though. But the floorplan of the house is incredibly odd. It took me a good 3 minutes to find the front entry/foyer…and look where it empties out into. All in all, the rooms look tiny and there are just too many of them – its a very compartmental home. I can only hope the details and refinement of everything will be this home’s saving grace.

    All those that say I love square footage [looks at Barney 😉 ], this is one home whose square-footage should be spaced out into one residence with one guest house. And knock down some of those walls for goodness sake!

      Who, Me?!?!

      Do you actually mean to say that you like the overall square footage even though it’s ONLY a PALTRY 46,000?? (ssssssssmirk!).

      I agree with you. For example the guard house; what use does it have?
      Floorplan isn’t really good; incredible amount of (relatively) small rooms, having to walk through other rooms to get to one; just imagine walking from the front door to the media room.

      And for a house this big I except a foyer that matches the house; this one is small and is placed in a stupid place in the house.

        At the risk of sounding like a know-it-all Dan & Iemand……I feel pretty confident in saying that you guys can’t really have a concept of a mansion this size just from an online floorplan. For example:

        Dan…..you say knock walls….but what walls would you knock down? The bedroom/bath room/closet walls?? I mean, can’t you guys see the visual SIZE of the living, family, kitchen and master bedrooms?? I really don’t see how you can think in any way, shape or form that this house is small. Exact measurements of each room are not needed to see how large they…..you can’t get a sense of how HUGE this house is?

          Barney. Just look at the floorplan. Look at the tiny entry foyer. You open the [single] front door, and are ushered into a small foyer which continues into a still-small reception room. You have to travel down a long and narrow hallway to get to the rather large living room. What sense does this make? Considering its 30K+ square-feet, why would they need to make guests snake around the place to get to the major rooms? If I were designing it, I would have made the foyer and living room where the kitchen and family room are. Something much more conventional. And judging from the site-plan, the living room doesn’t have much of a view. And considering where they have the pool situated, wouldn’t you want to have a formal living room overlooking that rather than grass and trees? Call me pompous, but *I* want to have a “wow” factor as soon as I step into a home, especially one of this size and prestigious location. I’m not saying make it a double-staircase with 30-foot ceilings, but just make it special. This home doesn’t seem special.

            Exactly. I’m not saying every room is small (just look at the living room, family room), but it just to much and not a very logical floorplan.
            Some are relatively small like the dining room.

            The 3 ‘kitchens’ reminds me of those home where small children invaded the cooks/crew territory (being halted or welcomed), just the place where everything happens. It looks like a huge place those 3 rooms.

            But what bothers me the most is also the foyer. Badly place, to small and like I said: just imagine walking from there to (say) the mediaroom, going through all those rooms.
            Second floor looks better (logically speaking).

          Actually, the foyer reminds me a lot of this home as well. Except this home is GORGEOUS all around and has the lot to match (the home is in Beverly Park), but just look at it. You have a fantastic two-story foyer (something this home doesn’t have), but it terminates into this small alcove (photos 9 and 10). What the heck is the point of that??? And its Richard Landry for goodness sake!!!! I just hate it when a room or space terminates into something useless.

    I personally don’t mind several different buildings on a single estate, as long as it makes sense. A guard house? Definitely, with a driver’s apartment above, which this doesn’t have. Guest houses are a great thing for long-term guests, as long as they’re not too big. A 2,500 square foot guest house is too big. You want the guests to visit, not move in. I don’t get the clubhouse or the spa building. Both of those could/should have been incorporated into one of the guest houses or the main house.

    Looking at the renderings I’m glad that it’s not another faux French or Mediterranean monstrosity. This has potential to be attractive.

    Where’s the proof that it’s Tom Gores? His currently spread is much more impressive.

    I get being understated, but when you’re building a 40 some thousand square foot compound trying to make it understated is just hypocritical bc we all know you could just build the smaller house that it looks like. In this case, this houses rendering are very lack luster. A cozy looking home, but not impressive like a 40k sq.ft. property should be.

    Also, Garage space isn’t really cosidered livable square footage reguardless of whether he finishes out the subterranean garage beautifully… that’s not really house square footage so that’s like 10k sq.ft. off the house.

    According to property records 1040 Angelo changed hands in Feb 06 for $33.640m!! That’s an expensive damn lot! The lot is actually 3 separate parcels cobbled together and appears to be about 6 acres (not sure if that’s for all 3 parcels or just the largest.)

    Not impressive at all – for all that money…only for the lot…? The house is not only large but also very ugly. Too many structures, weird elevations and totally lack of taste. Ultimatelly it is an architectural nightmare. But who cares if the owner pays…? Who ever the owner is he obviously needs serious security 24×7 and to be surrounded by bodyguards and this is clearly rendered in the plan.

    Dang this looks intense.. Nice property nice house but you could eliminate some buildings… dont need clubhouse, already have huge mansion, both guest houses have dumb layouts… get rid of one. Guard house is cool i think and ties the theme in. Now as for the house itself the point of entry makes sense if you think about it in this way: this mystery person is going all out to build what im sure will be a very impressive house, they want it laid out in a way that takes you all through the house in a linear controlled path, rather than a more traditional radiating style. This way they get to show off the entire thing. But what they should’ve done it put the main entry over by the courtyard entrance and put the kitchen and all that over where the entrance is now and make that like a service wing. Other than that i cant wait to see what it looks like!

    Everyone that is saying any room in this house is too small do not how to read floor plans. People take a second to look at the dimensions of these rooms. The rooms in this house are MASSIVE. Take a second to compare them to the dimensions in your own homes and you may finally realize just how big most of these rooms are. And people who are saying some of these structures are not necessary just aren’t thinking of the lifestyles that these people live. To those who think the “guard house” serves no purpose, take a moment to absorb that, the guard house is likely for their security guard, notice that its right next to the gate to screen visitors. And most of these guest houses would more likely be used for staff since there does not appear to be much room for live in help in the main house. I mean just take a second to think about the sheer number of people that would be necessary to maintain a home and estate of this size.

    There is some construction activity occurring there? It appears as if there is based on some aerial photos that I viewed recently? I haven’t been by there in a while so I can’t confirm or deny?
