A home in France recently broke the record for the highest price ever paid for a house. The sale of Chateau Louis XIV, located outside of Paris, is rumored to have sold for $301M. The previous record holder was a $221M penthouse at the One Hyde Park building in London that was developed by Candy & Candy and Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the Prime Minister of Qatar. With those record prices in mind, let's take a look at the most expensive homes for sale in Los Angeles and see how the price points compare.

There is, of course, last year's most expensive home for sale in Los Angeles at 9505 Lania Lane that started at $195M and was reduced to $149M. While no longer publicly listed, is still available to a willing buyer.

One of the most sought after areas in Los Angeles to live and to buy is Hollywood Hills. The Hollywood Hills have been divided (literally by the 101 Freeway) between Hollywood Hills West and Hollywood Hills East. The Hollywood Hills are highly desired not only because they offer famous neighbors from the numerous celebrity residents; this neighborhood also is steeped in history, offers more seclusion, privacy, and isolation than found in most parts of Los Angeles, has incredible views, and the more western location is convenient to everything in the city from Beverly Hills and the Sunset Strip to Downtown and from the beaches to the studios.

The homes for sale in Hollywood Hills are commanding record breaking prices in the current market with the

One of the highlights of my job as a Realtor in the Los Angeles luxury real estate market is getting to see some of the most incredible homes in this town. Each neighborhood of Los Angeles offers something unique in lifestyle and history and one of the most illustrious neighborhoods is Bel Air. Bel Air was developed in 1923 by Alphonso Bell. He had some strict ideas on how the land was going to be developed and who could live there. Fortunately the restrictions on who could buy in Bel Air were lifted long ago, which allowed Bel Air to be home to some of the most famous entertainers in the world. While incredible mansions in this neighborhood are always sought after by the rich and famous, not every home is a mega estate priced for the wealthiest people in

Most Expensive Home in US for Sale at 9505 Lania Lane Beverly Hills 90210

At the end of a quarter mile private driveway sits a mansion named Palazzo di Amore. 9505 Lania Lane is sited on a private 25-acre knoll high above the cities of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. In 2007, billionaire real estate investor Jeff Greene paid $35 million for a shell (aka unfinished structure) constructed by prolific mega-mansion developer Mohamed Hadid. Greene then spent another $25 million to turn the blank-slate project into his dream home. Greene was married in the home (hence the Palace of Love moniker) and has made it available for rent since he no longer lives in California. In 2009, the home was first offered as a rental for the princely sum of $250,000 per month then raised this year to $475,000 a month. Greene has decided to take

7256 Sunnydip Trail | Mid-Century Modern | Buff & Hensman Post-and-Beam | Architectural Home  

I have to admit I had two favorite homes from the twenty-two I toured this week, but 7256 Sunnydip Trail in the Hollywood Hills gets the nod for a couple of reasons:

  1. Price: This is Los Angeles, so it is not a given that $2 million will buy you an architecturally significant home with views and a pool. Whereas, expectations tend to change when the price tag is just short of $16 million dollars as is the case with the equally impressive co-favorite at 1240 Benedict Canyon Drive in the Beverly Crest neighborhood of Benedict Canyon.
  2. New Listing: The home on Sunnydip Trail has only been on the market for a week, whereas my co-favorite known as The Rothschild / Harvey Mudd Estate in Beverly Hills has been listed for a combined 300 days since
