A 13-BEDROOM Italian-style mansion in Beverly Hills has set a new record as the most expensive home to ever be sold at auction.
Bidding for Villa Firenze, spanning nine acres, is closed and the $165million sale is pending, according to Concierge Auctions, a marketing service provider for auctions.
The property is an authentic Italian village built on the largest assemblage in North Beverly Park, an exclusive gated community in Los Angeles, California.
It has a lavish courtyard with a fountain, 40-foot-tall Canary Island palms and can accommodate 30 vehicles.
At a massive 20,000 square feet, Villa Firenze has 17 full bathrooms and 8 half bathrooms.
“Entertain a slice of European lifestyle with resort amenities galore including a pool with pool house and outdoor tennis court,” a Concierge Auctions webpage states.
Built by award-winning architect William Hablinski, the mansion features marble and stone floors, vaulted ceilings, arched doorways and crown molding.
It has a resort-style swimming pool complete with a spa and jacuzzi as well as a pool house.
Outdoor amenities include a tennis court, gardens, three fountains and a lawn stretching four acres, as well as nearby bathrooms.
The home has a garage that can fit six cars, five offices, four outside kitchens, a large gym, a sports field and even a fenced area for dogs.
Villa Firenze is located at 67 Beverly Court, nestled between famed Sunset Boulevard and Mulholland Drive in the hills overlooking Los Angeles.
“Attention to privacy and security with two secure entrances to North Beverly Park from Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley affords residents a laid-back, yet luxurious lifestyle, and offers a large private park for exclusive resident use,” according to Concierge Auctions.
The mansion is close to Rodeo Drive, West Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles, as well as Venice and Santa Monica.
Villa Firenze was five years in the making and was marked by real estate agents Hilton & Hyland at $160million.
The required bidder deposit was $100,000.
