Bel Air’s 48,000 Sq. Ft. Le Belvédère Château Sells for $56M, Prev. Listed for $85M
630 Nimes Road, Bel Air, California, United States
One of the most beautiful estate properties in Bel Air has sold for $56,000,000 according to The Wall Street Journal. The sprawling 48,000 square foot mansion hit the market in late-2016 for $85,000,000 before dropping to $72,000,000 earlier this year. With stunning 280° city views, this 48,000 square foot, 2.2 acre French inspired château has it all. Walled and gated with exceptional entertaining areas, exquisite design and detail. Professional screening room, grand ballroom, 5,000 bottle wine cellar, 3 sumptuous master suites, 7 additional bedrooms, beautiful grounds with fountains, loggia and terraces, infinity pool, spa, 19 fireplaces, elevator, Moroccan suite, Turkish hummam, gym, commercial kitchen, swan pond and so much more. The property was built by real estate developer Mohamed Hadid who sold it to an international buyer in 2010 for $50,000,000. The buyer never moved in and Hadid reportedly leased the property back. His firm Mohamed and Hadid & Development Group have completed many commercial projects and substantial private homes including this 48,000 square foot mansion in Beverly Hills, however the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. In 2016 Hadid was facing criminal charges related to Bel Air’s Strada Vecchia mansion which was reportedly built without permits and has been labelled the “starship enterprise” by neighbours.
