$53 Million Rolling Hills Mansion Listed for Sale

You may be curious about the new listing of the most expensive home ever listed on the Palos Verdes Peninsula Hacienda de la Paz (click this link for additional photos).

The $53 million mansion, which recently went to market, meets local building codes in the gated city of Rolling Hills by keeping to one story. But those rules don’t say a word about building underground. What’s not visible from the street are five magnificent subterranean levels on 50,000 square feet accessible by labyrinthine passageways, two elevators and secret stairs. Inside, you’ll find a tennis court built to U.S. Open standards (the outdoor court meets French Open specs), a Moroccan-style Turkish bath, a chapel, an English library, nine bedrooms and 25 bathrooms.

 

 

Turkish Baths

Indoor tennis court
