The latest blockbuster to hit the listings in the City of Angels: this 15,520-square-foot sprawler in Holmby Hills designed by L.A. architectural poohbah Wallace Neff. Holmby Hills seems to be the place for bloated estate sales; herein also lies L.A.'s No. 1 pleasure palace, Gregory Peck's longtime estate, Jeremy Renner's ebullient house flip, and radio star Casey Kasem's $42M spread. So what does Neff's 1973 Singleton House, which last listed in 2008 for an eye-watering $85M, have to offer? Oh, the usual: 10 bedrooms, a grand entryway perfect for prom photos, seven acres of "rolling" lawns, a private tennis court, and a motor court—all of which would be absolutely mahvelous if the estate had anything by way of contemporary decor. Though, to be fair, it seems unlikely the orange velvet pillows or matching set of chinoiserie sofas and curtains are included the deal. But fear not, lovers of pretentious '70s decor! The shiny, mustard-colored carpeting on main staircase and the elaborate floral frescoes are yours for keeps, and all for the low, low price of $75M.
