Apparently, over-the-top speculative homes are the flavor of the month in Los Angeles. Just weeks after a $250 million mansion was unveiled in Bel Air, another fully decked-out home joins it with a similarly hefty price tag.
This seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom mega mansion in Beverly Hills costs $100 million and comes with a gold Lamborghini, a Rolls-Royce, two original Damien Hirst paintings, and an Andy Warhol portrait of Muhammad Ali.
Dubbed “Opus,” the luxury home is perched above Los Angeles with a view of the city and the Pacific Ocean. It’s the brainchild of ex-movie producer turned real estate developer Nile Niami, who has built homes for rapper Sean Diddy and the Winklevoss twins.
Opus is the precursor to Niami’s “The One,” a Bel Air development that will reportedly list for $500 million.
“It has some of the same amenities, but they’re both unique properties with different vibes and a completely different demographic of buyers,” Niami said to Business Insider.
This 20,500-square-foot mansion sprawls across an acre of land on elite cul-de-sac Hillcrest, where lots sell for between $32 and $50 million each. “It has always been known as the best area of Trousdale. The people who lived on that cul-de-sac never moved, so the street was never for sale,” Niami said. Trousdale Estates is a community in Beverly Hills. “When the opportunity came up, I knew I had to build there.”
On one side of the main living room is a retractable glass wall that opens up onto a sweeping view of Downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. On the other, a TV comes down from the wall and rotates a full 360 degrees. It allows you to watch TV and admire the view at the same time, Niami said.
The house includes a contemporary art collection with three Damien Hirst originals and an Andy Warhol portrait of Muhammad Ali.
Also included in the hefty $100 million price tag are two gold sports cars: the Lamborghini Aventador Spyder and the Rolls-Royce Dawn. These cars are kept in a car museum with space for eight more vehicles.
There’s a Champagne vault with 170 bottles of Cristal just ready and waiting for the new owner to arrive.
The lavish “wine dining room” has 944 bottles on display as well as Roberto Cavalli flooring, which runs throughout the house.
The price includes all of the furniture and art.
The master suite has dual closets and baths. You can gaze at the city through large floor-to-ceiling windows. “I wanted to build the buyer a bedroom where they would wake up to an unobstructed Los Angeles sunrise every morning,” Niami said.
Niami has created a luxurious wellness center with hot and cold plunge pools, a steam and massage room, and a beauty salon that has all the facilities in place to have beauty treatments done at home.
There are two swimming pools. One is indoors …
… and the other is outside, so you can take in the view.
The owner will have unobstructed views of the city because there are no rooftops or houses below, Niami said.
Opus is hidden behind large gold gates on this exclusive cul-de-sac. “You’ve got some great neighbors you can borrow sugar from,” Niami said. “You’ve got the highest concentration of wealth and land value of any street in LA.”
