A large estate in the exclusive Beverly Park district of Beverly Hills hit the market with an asking price of $ 32.5 million. And as Mansion Global reports, the history of this unique property is almost as interesting as the property itself, having belonged to the late Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel (who died in May) and originally commissioned in the 1990s by a Norman Zada, a nabob adult magazine which founded Perfect 10, a magazine specializing in photos of models without plastic surgery.
To add another notable figure to the story, we can turn to the designer of the manor: the famous architect Richard Landry. It is Landry who gives the house its distinctive visual style which seems as futuristic and avant-garde as before in the 90s when it was designed.
Here is how the manor was mentioned in the official marketing documents of the Agency a few years ago:
“This compound of approximately 20,000 square feet on an exceptional 6.78 acre lot has a fluid layout for everyday life and sophisticated entertainment. The large voluminous entrance, glass walls, glossy finishes and proportioned bedrooms Generous evoke supreme sophistication worthy of royalty and celebrities. The highly secure complex includes a multi-level guest residence of approximately 6,100 square feet and an entertainment pavilion connected to the main house by a futuristic columned bridge. This private complex is nestled on lush hills and surrounded by manicured lawns, mature palms and towering pines; the grounds include a swimming pool and pool house, large gazebo, separate plunge pool, paddle tennis court, a safety pavilion, cascading waterfalls and much more. A truly incomparable majestic domain. “
The main house has 11 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms, and the estate also houses another separate building which, according to the MG article, is “currently configured as an office”, a characteristic that makes a good selling point because even billionaires work from home these days.
