9: Fleur de Lys – Beverly Hills PRICE: $78 million

This incredible Tuscan-style mansion is spread across five acres of land in Beverly Hills, and boasts twelve bedrooms, a fifty-seat theater, fifteen baths, a gym, a pool house, a ballroom, a 1,200-metre running track, and a guest house which most of us would look at like a palace on its own. The construction alone took six years, being commissioned in 1996 and completed in 2002. It was designed by the famous architect, Richard Robertson of Robertson Partners, and modelled on the Palace of Versailles, which inspired the French name of the house. The original owner of the Fleur de Lys was the founder of Metro Networks David I. Saperstein, although he lost the property to his first wife in a divorce settlement in 2004. Two years later, it was put on the market for $78 million, yet sold for $102 million to an anonymous French billionaire, making it the biggest property sale in the history of Los Angeles County.
