For the last three years, HRH Maha Alsaud — a prominent member of the Saudi royal family — has been trying to unload her designer-renovated, part-time Los Angeles home with no takers. Situated in the guard-gated Mulholland Estates enclave high in the mountains above Beverly Hills, the 1990s contemporary estate was once offered for as much as $9.5 million and is currently occupied by a tenant paying $31,000 per month, but has now returned to the open market with an asking price that’s just a hair under $8 million.
If Her Royal Highness does get anywhere near the ask — which is the same price she requested when the 90210 digs popped up for sale two years ago — it will still be a little more than the speck under $7 million she paid for the place back in 2013. During her tenure, though, the princess did customize the premises to her tastes in collaboration with her go-to designer, Robyn Jensen.
Nestled on over a half-acre in the same enclave where nearby celebrity neighbors include Christina Aguilera, Vanna White, Kendall Jenner, Paris Hilton and Marshmello — the two-story, Japanese-inspired structure features five bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths in just over 7,400 square feet of living space boasting stark white interiors accented with rustic wood touches.
Visitors are greeted by a gated courtyard, and then the front door opens into a light-filled foyer that flows into a step-down formal living room anchored by a fireplace and wet bar, plus more casual family and media rooms, all with glassy doors opening to al fresco dining and lounging areas. A formal dining room connects to the gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with an eat-in island, high-end stainless appliances and a butler’s pantry.
Upstairs, the spacious master retreat features a fireside sitting area, two oversized terraces and walk-in closets, as well as a luxe bath with a freestanding soaking tub and glass-encased shower. Three additional en-suite bedrooms with walk-in closets also can be found on this floor; and the resort-like grounds are showcased by a grassy lawn flanking a pool and sundeck, barbecue-equipped outdoor kitchen and sports court.
