Now that L.A.'s mega estate Fleur de Lys has, after seven years asking a record-setting $125M, found a buyer (and one willing to shell out $102M in cash, no less) the broadcast celebri-journalists at Extra have dug up and published their own video tour of the Versailles-inspired palace. Highlights: a glimpse into the world's most consistently champagne-colored, frou-frouiest screening room, a giant reception space outfitted with a single tufted sectional, a two-story library, and a cavernous (as in "cavern-like," not simply "large") dining area "for you and 40 of your closest friends."
To recap: Fleur de Lys broke records when it hit the market in 2007 for $125M and, despite years of floundering, stuck stubbornly to its ask until this week, when it finally sold for $102M, a record for Los Angeles County. The 100-room mansion (plus all the antique furniture inside) apparently sold amid a bidding war that engaged three billionaires. Info about the owner is shaky, though the L.A. Times initially reported it was snatched up by "junk bond king" Michael Millken.
