Ostentatious Mansion in the Los Angeles 'Burbs Wants $12M

New, 15 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
Price: $12,000,000
The Skinny: Back in 2011, Donald Trump sold his ridiculous golf estate in the affluent Los Angeles suburb of Rancho Palos Verdes for just over $7M. Perhaps you looked at that mansion and thought, This is nice, but it just doesn't contain enough vulgar displays of wealth. Is there a gaudier place somewhere around here? Cue 3300 Palos Verdes Drive West, which just hit the market for $12M with, coincidentally, the same exact asking price that The Donald's place started with. Some of the over-12,000-square-foot home's, uh, flashier details include a "hand painted ceiling mural of the Allegory of the Winds, a mosaic of over 15,000 pieces of stone and an exquisite angel statue over the fireplace" and, in the dining room, "ceiling molds from Caesars Palace"—the casino, maybe? Apparently the person who commissioned architects Edward Carson Beall and Associates to build the place in 1997 had spent 25 years traveling around the world and acquired "a collage of architectural ideas."
