901 Alpine Drive, Beverly Hills, CA

Few locales are as ubiquitously associated with opulence as the city of Beverly Hills. Palatial hillside estates have played an important role in shaping this independent municipality into one of the most desirable real estate markets in the world. With a centralized location within Los Angeles County, a mild climate, and breathtaking views of the Los Angeles Basin, Beverly Hills is synonymous with wealth and exclusivity.

At 20,000 square feet with eight bedrooms situated on a 5-acre site, this Tuscan Vineyard Estate is situated within the highly desirable Beverly Park neighborhood and is not far from Franklin Canyon Park. A leasable property, it provides ample amounts of indoor and outdoor space as well as boasting some of the most spectacular amenities money can buy.  From its fountain-adorned motor-court and two-story foyer to an expansive wine cellar, gymnasium, and mini-spa, this is a home with few peers.

To the south is another massive estate at 901 Alpine Drive. Located much closer to the center of action, this home is beautifully placed on the world-famous Sunset Boulevard. This unbeatably convenient location within Beverly Hills is just a short drive from the city’s central business district along Wilshire Boulevard, it never takes long to take advantage of the area’s top-notch dining and shopping offerings.

Incorporating the talent of architectural designer Robert Salice, this residence  on Alpine Drive is meticulously detailed across an impressive 28,000 square feet of space. Ideal for entertaining and featuring a 200-guest ballroom, five wet bars with ice makers and wine refrigerators, a walk-in wine cellar, a huge gourmet commercial kitchen, a 50-car motor court, and a 16-car subterranean garage are all included in this amazing estate.

While these two homes are impressive, the colossal scale of the spectacular Palazzo Di Amore is a sight to behold. An off-market opportunity, this Mediterranean Villa sits on a 25 acre lot high above the city of Beverly Hills, offering sweeping view of Los Angeles’ Westside and the Santa Monica Bay.

Palazzo Di Amore totals an incredible  53,000 square feet. That amount of floor space goes a long way, allowing for a bowling alley, theatre, guest house, drivers’ quarters, spa and a wine cellar, plus much more. Outdoors, the estate includes outdoor amenities like a tennis court, a vineyard, formal gardens, a pool and fountains. Its sprawling campus makes it an ideal residence for hosting massive events.

Beverly Hills and its surrounding areas are blessed with a rich history of mansion-building, and only appears to be growing. And as one of the most exclusive cities in the country, it is no surprise that Beverly Hills is home to some of the country’s most extraordinary residences.
