Over in a prime pocket of Bel Air, flashy developer Ramtin Ray Nosrati of Huntington Estate Properties has done it again, hoisting his latest ultra-contemporary spec mansion onto the market. And though it’s not quite as glitzy as some of his other creations — say, hedge fund mogul Jeffrey Feinberg’s $44 million Brentwood spread — the luxe residence definitely lives up to the designer’s wow-factor reputation, complete with sweeping ocean and city lights views from every vantage point. And the asking price? A mere $26 million.
Tucked away behind a lengthy gated driveway, and protected by an automated security system, the modern showpiece was completed in January of this year. Known as “Bel Air Escape,” the bespoke palace features six bedrooms and seven baths in almost 14,000 square feet of two-level living space armed with smart-home capabilities. There’s also a 3,200-square-foot roof deck flaunting a wet bar, large TV, built-in barbecue and putting green, plus over an acre of tropically landscaped grounds dotted with organic gardens, water features, and a reflecting pool nestled alongside a vertical living plant wall.
Among the main-level highlights: a soaring foyer topped by a 16-foot circular skylight and displaying a cylindrical living moss wall, which is centered around a spiral staircase that descends to an expansive, glass-lined living and entertainment space. From there, a formal dining room adjoins a living room spotlighted by a stone fireplace, wine cellar and tasting room, and travertine-clad wet bar. A fireside family room connects to the gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with an oversized island, top-tier Miele appliances and a prep gallery sporting a professional-grade refrigerator.
Upstairs, a plush master retreat comes complete with a fireplace, wraparound balcony with fire-pit, two showroom-style closets and a dressing room, as well as a spa-like bath boasting dual vanities, a soaking tub and rainfall shower. Elsewhere in the house is a gym and movie theater; and outdoors, the resort-inspired backyard holds an al fresco dining and kitchen setup, along with an 80-foot infinity-edge pool, spa and grassy play areas. There’s also a garage and motorcourt that can accommodate up to 10 vehicles.
The listing is jointly held by Shauna Walters of The Beverly Hills Estates, Nicole Plaxen and Sally Forster Jones of Compass, and Josh Altman and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman.
