In Beverly Hills, an enclave known for its ultra-lavish estates, only the most breathtaking residence has the power to boggle the mind. 40 Beverly Park Circle
is such a place.
Designed by renowned architect Richard Landry, the palatial home embraces 27,000 square feet of living space with ten bedrooms, fourteen bathrooms, a ballroom and a 2,500-bottle wine cellar. It is listed at $45,000,000.
Situated on two landscaped acres in guard-gated Beverly Park, the mansard-roofed chateau is approached through immense gates that open to a grand circular drive and high porte-cochere. Massive carved doors admit guests to an imposing two-story foyer with a curving staircase whose lavishly filigreed rail extends along the loggia above.
Every sumptuous detail of the residence is designed to astonish and delight, from patterned marble floors and exquisite wallpapers to elaborate fireplaces and ornate coffered ceilings. The turreted circular paneled library, topped by a domed ceiling, is surrounded by windows overlooking the grounds. The planks in its hardwood floor fan out in rays around a glass center that looks down into the circular brick wine cellar below. There is an indoor pool and spa with filigree-covered skylight, a gourmet kitchen, a breakfast room open to the grounds, a home theater, a gym, wet and dry saunas, a massage room, a tennis court and a six-car garage.
Outside, a sweeping loggia and open-air patio spaces overlook the vast, magnificently manicured grounds. The view extends across an immense pool with spa and water features to the canyon beyond.
There is elegance. And then there’s magnificence. This personal realm pushes the boundaries of both.
