Is this Mansion The Most Expensive Among Luxury Holiday Cottages?

An 18,000-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills has now the second highest selling price among luxury holiday cottages in Los Angeles. The home was previously owned by comedy actor Danny Thomas and it is now for sale at $135 million.

Trousdale Estates Mansion is built on a 2.5 acres property. It is located at 1187 N. Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills, L.A. The mansion is perfectly located for a great 360 degrees view of Los Angeles starting from the downtown up to the canyons.

The enormous property has seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms. It is inspired by Moorish architecture. Embellishments includes arches, hand crafted rugs, decorative tile work and wall and ceiling paintings. Fixtures and rugs could possibly be included in the sale. Baccarat chandeliers, golden ceilings and crown moldings are some of the mansion’s jewels which amount to $2.5 million. The grand mansion has interior ballroom and media room. It is perfect for auto enthusiasts because it has a motor court which can accommodate as many as 20 cars.

According to the President of Aaroe Estates Aaron Kirman, the house was rebuilt from the foundation going up. He said that the mansion has a clever home technology. It also boasts all the fancy features which are expected at the price point, he added. His firm closed a $70 million deal of an adjacent property last year. It was bought by Markus Persson, a Swedish Minecraft billionaire. Kirman indicated that global investors would likely agree for the $135 million mansion.

Danny Thomas was known for The Danny Thomas Show which was originally called Make Room for Daddy. He initiated the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He has a daughter named Marlo Thomas who is also a well-known actress.

Thomas’ kids sold the property for $15 million in 2000. It was bought by a group called Inch & Meter, Ltd. The president of the group is Gisele Chagouri.

This is not presently the most expensive among luxury holiday cottages for sale in Los Angeles. That position is taken by the $195 million asset of billionaire Jeff Greene, the second highest priced listing in United States after the $200 million Ziff family property in Florida.
