Stunning for so many reasons, the famous Owlwood Estate is now for sale at a record price for California: $150 million. Besides its huge dimensions and lush amenities, the estate boasts a remarkable history of ownership. When architect Robert Farquhar designed the house, he did it for Florence Quinn, the former wife of Arthur Letts Junior, a renowned real estate tycoon and department store magnate.

The 1936 mansion boasts an Italian Renaissance architecture and offers 12,201 square feet of lavish spaces. These include 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and a huge living room with marble fireplace and solid oak paneling (the room measures 1,500 square feet!).
The estate has two adjacent lots, a tennis court, beautifully trimmed gardens, lovely water features, a separate guest house, a large outdoor swimming pool, and more. If money is not a problem for you, then you simply cannot afford to miss the opportunity to live in this stunning Los Angeles mansion.
