I’m sure most of you are familiar with this house. It is located on Sunset Boulevard, however it has the address of 901 Alpine Drive. It is situated right next to Palais des Agnes, the massive $55 million opulent European inspired estate which clocks in at a gargantuan 36,000 square feet. Yes, that’s right, TWO massive European inspired, opulent mega mansions right next to each other. They both started construction around the same time. Well, this home is now completed as well, except for interior which is still being worked on. It was built by Project Engineering Group. The architect is Frank Valentino’s Park Lane Design Group. It boasts approximately 28,000 square feet of grand living space with 30 ft ceilings, ballroom with skylight, elevator, servants quarters, an indoor swimming pool, a full gym, a spa, a sauna, a movie theater, guest house, 12 car subterranean garage and much more. It is being offered at $39,000,000. However, it is not officially on the MLS.

    I really hope they are going to paint the window surrounds of the front entry. The black windows looks terribly cheap and too contemporary for the overall architecture. Better yet, they should install some glass and iron doors. The elevator looks so foolish…this isn’t a hotel people! Also, is the home not going to have an outdoor pool?

    I agree the elevator is one of the biggest turn offs to this property. It looks so 1980s.

    An absolute mess from a man who ISN’T EVEN AN ARCHITECT. But it did replace a travesty committed by a saudi with way more money than taste.

    By way of an extreme, almost ridiculous comparison, check this one out:
    http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/3886-Reading-Rd_Cincinnati_OH_45229_M30286-00807
    This Beaux-Arts palace isn’t as large, and it IS in Cincinnati, of all places, but it is less than 2% of the price, on a sized comparable lot. It isn’t a mega-mansion, but it’s a heck of a lot more elegant, and probably more livable, if a bit off the A-list party circuit beat….

      You COULDN’T be more right, Brian…….the Authentic, Impeccable, GENUINE and GORGEOUS home in Cincinnati is INFINITELY more elegant, beautiful and relatable as a true home. Although it’s still quite large and the year the house was built isn’t listed on Realtor.com, I’m sure it was built before 1920 and that explains its innately correct proportions, detail, materials and presence. It sure as Hell seems to me that the vast majority of gargantuan mansions that have been built in this country in the past 20 or so years were done so with a micro amount of good taste, just like this MESS in California……..YET ANOTHER ONE of the tens of thousands JUST like it.f

    wow in a very bad way. I was in LA last summer and happened to walk into this place while still under construction. (I did the same for the beautiful Beaux Arts mansion next door) I knew it was going to be bad then and now that I see these updated pictures I see that it’s worse than I imagined. what an expression of poor, overindulgent poor taste! I walked into a room filled with plans, renderings and future designs I assume the builder is throwing up elsewhere. they were just as bad and it’s unfortunate LA’s architecture will suffer as a result.

    this house looks like shit, the entrance looks like the entrance to a mall!!!, had they made the entrance better and made the exterior out of solid stone then it would have been ok, but that entrace ruins the whole house!!

    Oh, just wanted to say to the people talking about the elevator, the elevator can be done in a classy way, take a look at Le Belvedere, that home has an elevator but it is done in a classy way, I think if a house is 35,000 square feet or more it is big enough to warrant an elevator, it just needs to be done in a classy way if it is a classical or traditional home, a contempory home can have an elevator that looks like it belongs in a mall but a home with an overal traditional/classical/french type look should have a more traditional looking elevator and those front doors should have a more traditional type of look

      I agree with you regarding the use of an elevator. I think it is a great idea to have one in a home, especially if you have 3 or more levels (but I’d install one in a two-story home too). I just hate the way how it is the double-sliding gilded design presented here. As you said, you can make the elevator door very elegant, as if it is an entryway to another major room.

    oh and another thing, I am kinda thinking, and maybe I am wrong here, but I kinda suspect that hopefully they are having some very grand doors and intricate windows custom made in France or something and they are waiting on artisans to custom hand make the doors and windows and in the mean time they put up some cheap strip mall quality doors and windows just to keep the bugs out until the real doors and windows are ready, that’s my guess, cause why would they spend that kinda money building a house like that and then completely ruin it with those doors and windows, and also even if they do install some nicer doors and windows the entrance still would look too flat, it should have more structure to it

    and another thing, who put together that awful youtube video? I hope no one associated with the construction of the home is responsible for that, maybe some random 12 year old youtube user put that together using Microsoft Movie-Maker software or something cause that was the cheesiest thing ever, no rich person of any class or sophistication would be impressed with that cheesiness, maybe a young rich person like Petra Ecclestone, but she’s too young to even know what the 90210 tv show is, and any self respecting rich person wouldn’t be impressed by associating the so-called finest property in Beverly Hills with a tacky early 90’s teenage soap-opera, if this is what they call marketing I think they are totally going in the wrong direction, I say bull-doze the front of the property and redo the front entrance in a more classical distinguished way, then finish the inside of the property to the highest standard, then have youtube remove that awful video, and put together a classy video once the home is actually finished, oh and remove that hideous Donald Trump gold plated 80’s mall themed elevator and replace it with a more classy tasteful looking elevator (if anyone wants to see how an elevator can be done in a tasteful way just google Le Belvedre estate) and then maybe they’d have a shot of selling that catastrophe

    oh and another thing, did anyone of you notice that there is some small little funny looking mansion smooshed up directly against it, for a house of this size they should have bought that smaller property and made it part of the estate, because that other property is jammed up so close they had to make the shape of the house so weird to make such a big house fit on that tight little lot, that’s why they have that weird “PLANETARIUM” looking thing connected to the house at such a weird crooked angle because the lot is so tight with that other property smooshed against it that they had to have the house bent at that weird angle so that the driveway and motor court would fit, anytime you bend a property at weird angles like that it usually doesn’t work, it works with a few houses, the Spelling mansion is bent into a weird bird wing shape and it looks ok, it took a while to grow on me but it looks ok, but most mansions that are bent in weird shapes like that just look weird, especially if it looks like some weird crooked planetarium on the end!

    Tony…….you have a very good and perceptive eye for sure and a lot to say to go along with it! You’re a great contributor to Hotr, HOWEVER…….TAKE A BREATH, Buddy! If you had physically spoken what you wrote above, you would’ve lost your breath, turned DEEP blue, and then passed out HARD. By that I mean your MANY astute observations would have double the impact with even just some correct punctuation, placement and elimination of repeats. I don’t mean to be insulting, but a LOT of people less tactful than me would’ve really slammed you and thought that you’re much less smart than you are……..ya’ get it??

    @ Barney, this is just a comment on a blog, I am not trying to type speaking the king’s english or anything, its not that serious, oh and you did not use perfect punctuation in your comment either Barney, so I guess you’re the pot calling the kettle black!

      Wow…….you took it as complete and purposeful insult when I put it so very nicely? Too bad. I said literally nothing about the “Kings English”….and it’s correctly referred to as the “Queens English”, by the way.

      The fact remains that the vast majority of people today still intractably judge people what and how it comes out of your mouth and/or keyboard is a reflection of that persons intelligence.
