Bren Simon, who is the widow of billionaire Melvin Simon, has put her lavish Bel Air mansion back on the market. If you don’t already know, Melvin owned Simon Property Group, Inc (the largest public U.S real estate company and builder of many of the nation’s malls). The home is located at 10664 Bellagio Road in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles, CA and sits on a 1.5 acre lot with views of the golf course. Guy and Tani Hackbarth were the original owners/builders of the home and sold it to Bren Simon in 2006 for $27,500,000. It boasts 20,000 square feet of grand living space that includes 8 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a 2000 square foot master suite, home theater, gym/spa, billiards room, wine cellar, 10-car subterranean garage, guest house and more.

Bren first put the home on the market back in February of 2010 with an asking price of $50,000,000. It is now on the market for $44,000,000.

This has to be one of my favorite homes in all of Bel Air. The exterior is gorgeous and the interior is impeccable.

    I agree Kenny, a wonderfull place. The exterior is absolutely beautiful, interior is nice for the most part (good looking theater; finally something different then the usual over the top theaters mostly seen, the basement is a bit less good looking (pool is way too…’cold’).

    To bad the garden is kinda rubbish; very small (most of it is used for a driveway (while the ‘real’ driveway is off to the side) and the pool area is way to small too.

    And the price is outrageous: going from 27.5 million to 50 (almost 100% increase) in just 4 years is a joke, and 44 is still way overprice.

    The original price of 27.5 is more like it. If it’s (much) more, I would look elsewhere…

      I think she bought a neighboring lot/property as well, in addition to the 27 mil main house. So she did add a little bit too it, but still not worth the 44 she wants now.

    I agree that this is a great house. The interior is not my style but it’s beautiful. The exterior is also beautiful and understated, which is sometimes rare for these types of houses. I do with there were more outdoor space, and I’d turn at least part of the parking area into lawn. Although, I’m sure the parking is useful when entertaining on a large scale.

    It’s definitely expensive, and don’t think worth the asking price.

    I agree that there does need to be a lot more outdoor spaces, and I’m not in love with the positioning of the home on that awkward lot. The house itself, though, is very pretty. Not $44 million pretty, but pretty nonetheless.

    You guys are CRAZY if you believe this is way overpriced. What Kenny forgot to mention is that Bren purchased the property next door for $9 million and knocked the place down for more garden and parking space. So in reality she has $ 36.5 million in the place….The Cantor mansion recently sold for around $40 million so thats probably why she has it back on the market now.

    PS: Bren was also the former owner of the Plaza Condo that sold to the Russian composer for a record breaking $ 40 million recently.
