Real estate developers in LA County are no strangers to thinking outside-the-box when figuring out ways in which they can increase the value of their properties in the eyes of potential customers. The main objective in the minds of both future homeowners and developers when it comes to LA mansions is an unmatched luxury in every corner of the property.

The addition of extravagant objects and perks to an already luxurious house would require considerably more significant investments by the developers. Still, it could lead to some lucrative deals in the end. These unique little touches that accompany house purchase offers lead these properties to prominently feature on the news, making them appear even more attractive to billionaires on the lookout for their next purchase.

Here we will take a look at some such luxury real estates in LA that became famous for the objects the developers offered alongside the house.

Opus, Beverly Hills

Nile Niami, a Hollywood film producer and real estate developer is known for his enormous mansions that are marketed to the public via cinematic trailers. His 20,500 square foot mansion called Opus was built in 2017 and listed for $100 million when it was first unveiled. In 2017, Opus was the most expensive house in Beverly Hills with no other competition in sight.

One of the main unique features of this house includes a car museum with car turntables that can be viewed from within the home. This 10-car museum came with two golden cars, a Lamborghini Aventador and a Rolls-Royce Dawn. A billionaire car-aficionado would find it hard to resist a seven-bedroom mansion that came with two golden cars.

To make the purchase even more appealing to the buyer, the house also came with two fully filled champagne and wine vaults that held 170 and 944 bottles respectively.

At the beginning of 2020, it was announced that Opus was being sold to a buyer for more than $50 million.

Pendry Residences, West Hollywood

The Pendry Residences in West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip is a $500 million housing project consisting of 40 luxurious houses. The price of each residence is said to start at $3 million. The floor plans of these grand houses range between 2900 and 6000 square feet, and each of them come with private verandas from which the residents can enjoy views of downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills. For residents who desire the quiet while engaging in their favorite hobbies like playing at one of the best Canadian casino sites – Mucho Vegas, these terraces and verandas could prove to be ideal spots.

But the most incredible aspect regarding these West Hollywood luxury residences is a year-long lease on a McLaren 765LT that comes with the purchase of a two-story penthouse. That’s right, for $16 million, a homeowner can enjoy this limited-edition supercar that they house in their five-car garage.

The “Billionaire” House, Bel-Air

Bruce Makowsky, an American real estate developer, set a new record with his Bel-Air mansion listed at $250 million. Though this price might appear ridiculously large, even for a big mansion, wait till you hear of everything that comes with the house.

This mansion came with two master suites and ten VIP guest suites with a generous number of 21 bathrooms. For the celebrity who does not want to get paparazzied on a night out with friends, there is a whole bowling alley designed by Louis Vuitton within the house. The home movie theatre can accommodate a pretty big crowd of forty viewers.

The car gallery within the property comes with multiple exotic cars including a Rolls-Royce and a Bugatti, with the total value estimated at $30 million. There is also a massive wall that supplies a seemingly unlimited amount of candy to the residents. In case the luxurious setup that can accommodate large numbers of people might seem inadequate, there are also five bars and two cellars to make any party livelier.

The cherry on top comes in the form of a helipad above the house, and in the original listing, the house came with a helicopter and a sailboat.

This mansion was sold in 2019 to an LA businessman called Charles Cohen after many price slashes. It was sold for $94 million and was only LA’s third-highest sale in the year. Makowsky said that billionaires were not ready to spend such a massive amount on their future residences while justifying the price slashes from $250 million.

Summing up

The online world is creating numerous millionaires each year. With the newfound culture of showing off their home and lifestyle to all of their followers, many influencers and billionaires are on the lookout for unique luxury mansions. Developers have gone to great lengths to ensure that their property offer stands apart from the rest of the crowd.
