    It’s amazing how detailed (in some cases over detailed) the homes in Beverly Park are. So many knock them for being cheap wannabe’s of the Gilded Age estates. While we probably will never see a home match the quality of Rosecliffe or The Breakers, these homes make a damn good attempt. I love house #5 and the Palladian influences. House #6 (Ron Tutor’s) is probably the worst. Some nice stonework but overall it feels like a giant McMansion.

      Oh wow, I didn’t realize #6 was Ron Tutor’s house!! Eh, seeing pictures of it now doesn’t do anything for me. It’s okay.

      Yeah i agree, I don’t like the sixth house either, it looks cheap. I really like house number 4. I forget the name of this house. Actually I am not sure if it is named but usually houses of this stature have some sorta french name or something lol. But I do know it is in Pasadena, located at 1288 S. Oakland Ave. It is a huge amazing home. The interior needs some work but the exterior and grounds are amazing. Expecially the grounds and gardens and custom shrubbery.

    2 and 5 probably have the most elegant and authentic looking facade details. 5 could pass for an Italian villa/convent in Tuscany.

    While we may never see another Rosecliff, Elms or Breakers built, the homes of today surely try hard and their owners spend as much money on them as the titans of industry did a hundred years ago. What is lacking is not quality materials, marble, ironwork, fine cabinetry, plaster work, antiques, marquetry, etc. which is all available and is thrown together in some of these places, no what is lacking is the thoughtful and intelligent design eye to know how to put all those luxury materials into a design and end up with a stunner of a home and not a guady ill proportioned mess that cost 45 million but still ooks bad. The stone casting here is nicely done in a few of the homes and really awkward in others. Example number 1!

    I wonder if you built one of these in New Jersey, would the people know what it was.

    Ron Tutors house, just like his one out in Calabasas is AWFUL! This man has no taste clearly. I remember from the ariel pictures thinking all the paving looked Home Depot cheap and now I see this finished mess in a picture and it’s horrendous. I am not sure how you could even make it look better… while I am not a huge Landry fan to begin with, this is definitely one of his worst homes.

    #2 is by far my favorite, regal and beautiful. It’s the Avid estate in Beverly Park if someone doesn’t recognize it.

    The rest of them are very eh, not offensive like Tutors house but nothing I’d want.

    #4 is just awful and #1 a close runner up.

    #4 is the huge 30K sq foot Pasadena mansion that’s owned by some Chinese guy. It was on the market a few years ago for more than $50 mill.

    #5 is in Beverly Park and owned by a Russian guy named Alexander Sabadash. The home is actually one of the nicer and more authentic-looking there.

    I absolutely love the Avi Arad estate. Probably the best design and landscape in the community. Ron Tutor’s house is a hot mess.
