This is old news, but we thought we’d share it with you anyway incase some of you haven’t seen it. This proposed 48,000 square foot mega mansion would be built on 11.9 prime acre off of Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, CA. Khatri International, a Pasadena-based engineering firm, designed the home which will include 30,000 square feet on the first two floors and an 18,000 square foot subterranean garage; bringing the total square footage to 48,000. It would feature amenities such as a 4-lane bowling alley, 60-seat home theater, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a helipad on the roof. Buyers also have the option of creating nine smaller homes on the property instead of one large home.

    I have to say that the 9 smaller houses actually seem to fit the area better than the single huge house does. If there was even a remote attempt to fit the large house into the landscape, as opposed to carving out a flat pad and plunking it down, it would be a great property. It it’s built as designed, the single house will probably end up as another bloated white elephant McMansion.

    I’m not sure what to say about this design. I’m a little confused by the kitchen and family room being at opposite ends of the house.

    Huh? Is this a real floorplan or something a dead goat drew up? Why is the billiards room larger than the living room and library combined? Why do people have to go through the pantry to get to the dining room from the kitchen? How the hell is the pool going to be above the bowling alley (why is the bowling alley on the same level as the principle rooms – imagine the racket it would cause)? The only thing that sounds like it might be a winning feature is the garage, but by the looks of it they probably put it in the attic or something.

    The floor plan is way too simple and poorly designed for a house of this magnitude. The rooms need to have a better balance; why is there a bowling alley off of the main entry way, why is there that awkward hallway to the kitchen, why do all of the rooms that need a view face the front, and why are there bedrooms off of the kitchen????? IF this house was built, it would be a waste of a perfectly good lot. The exterior is way too bland as well.

    I don’t find this home very appealing. I think the pantry connecting the dining room and kitchen is the butlers pantry, which makes sense. I agree with daniel, it is bizarre to have the pool on the second level. Although, some have built the pool on the roof.

      I wanted to add that this floor plan is designed for people who have servants take care of them. Not for us regular folks.

    Hmm…. First, the house is facing the road, not the City…..??

    The, in that spot, it looks very hilly, and that they would have to dig out a LOT of ground to be able to comfortably insert a mansion there. Again…????

      If I am reading the topography on the floorplans right, the house won’t ever have a view of the city. It is being built into the base of a hill. Where the circular drive is in front, the elevation is around 800, and at the back of the house it is in the 840-850 range.

        That just seems kind of stupid. A 30,000 sq ft mega-mansion without a view of the city, and on a hill soo steep.

        Doesn’t seem worth the $$$.

          Definitely not worth it to me.

    Apparently this is the result of entrusting architectural design to an engineering firm…..let’s hope that’s an experiment not to be repeated.

    that looks like the house plans i used to draw in junior high. it’s enormous and unresolved. it’s a juvenile cocktail napkin sketch of a 13 year old boy’s dream house. beyond that, i honestly don’t see it working. the dining room and billiards are ENORMOUS and the living is tiny. the master suite is huge and unfortunately bad. this is soooo bad that i’m honestly convinced it’s a joke.

    is this a joke?
