Spanning more than 20,000 square feet on half a hectare of land, the 8408 Hillside Avenue spec mansion in Los Angeles was first listed in August for $43.9 million by real estate developer Jeff Thomas.
Thomas bought out two homes next door for $4.25 million and $2.7 million over several years to make space for the property, according to the Wall Street Journal. According to some calculations, it’s more than 800 percent larger than the average house in America.
The mega-mansion was featured as one of the high-end mansions toured by Oppenheim Group agents on the Netflix series “Selling Sunset.” Along with its massive size, it comes with panoramic views of Los Angeles, glass walls and a glass elevator, a spa with saunas and plunge pools, a 2,800-square-foot master bedroom, a 10-car garage and a roof terrace overlooking the city.
Another piece-de-resistance is the infinity pool with a waterfall that runs into a below atrium garden.
Oppenheim Group’s Jason Oppenheim, as well as The Agency’s David Parnes and James Harris, were the listing agents representing the mansion.
Little is known about the buyer other than the speculation that publicity from “Selling Sunset” may have helped put the home at the forefront of luxury real estate discussions. The building was completed this year so it was snapped up uncharacteristically fast for a house of its size and price point.
