A 40,000-square-foot, Richard Landry-designed megamansion in Bel Air, this recently completed spread was rumored to be asking $150M in November. Named the 2011 Ultimate Home by The Robb Report, the mansion has 28 bedrooms, "a full-service spa, a bar wrapped in Italian leather, a master suite coated in white onyx and bleached zebrawood," and "a custom "spinelike" helix staircase that weaves through the main house's four floors."

Owlwood, the 9.86-acre estate now owned by billionaire widow Dawn Arnall, is one of the largest in Beverly Hills, so, naturally, it should be one of the most expensive. It is. In late July, it was rumored that Arnall was quietly shopping the property around for $150M. A star-studded provenance, a 12,000-square-foot Tuscan-style mansion, and a border with the tony Los Angeles Country Club all contributed to that astronomical asking price.

Real estate investor Jeff Greene made himself a billionaire off the sub-prime mortgage crisis and proceeded to plunge some of that fortune into this insane Beverly Hills compound. In July, rumors began circling that Greene was ready to sell, albiet for the sky-high price of $150M.
