Listed for $1 billion, The Mountain of Beverly Hills is officially the most expensive property in the history of Los Angeles (if not the world). Let that soak in. Yes, billion with a “b”—as in Bezos, Buffett and Bloomberg.
If you’re super rich, audacious and aroused enough to place the winning bid, bring your glamping gear. That jaw-dropping price tag is just for the panoramic tract of semi-developed land overlooking Los Angeles.
But what a small inconvenience compared to what you are getting—the most exclusive promontory real estate in the USA. One-of-a-kind, The Mountain spans a stupefying 157 acres (nearly twice the size of Disneyland), with an über private road that serpentines skyward toward 90210’s largest and loftiest peak, a summit best admired by helicopter.
That view is like virtually dropping Disneyland onto Mount Baldy (L.A.’s highest peak), where you’re the only guest at the park (no cars, tourists, hikers or Mickey Mouse).
A Los Angeles mural by graffiti artist Banksy is up for auction. Estimated to fetch $150k to $300k.
Banksy is a pseudonym for an elusive British graffiti artist who first emerged in Bristol, England, as part of an underground group of artists. He has become known for his trademark spray-paint stencils that offer social commentary.
He intentionally hides his identity and real name, but verifies his works by featuring them on his website (www.banksy.co.uk).
