Dr Alex Khadavi's Bel Air megamansion
Dr Alex Khadavi's built a megamansion in the exclusive celebrity neighborhood of Bel-Air, construction for which was completed this year. He purchased the property for $16 million in 2013 and had set another $10 million aside to transform it into a contemporary-style home with a lot of glass fixtures. What was supposed to be a mini-project turned into a big-budget makeover which took seven years to complete and he spent close to $30 million for the complete redo of the house which spans 21,000 square feet. “It’s like when you go to a car dealership to buy a Toyota and they show you a Ferrari or a Lamborghini,” he said while talking about the process of choosing materials and finishes. “It’s like, ‘Hey, I want that one!’ You can’t pass it up," he added.
The over-the-top house, even by Los Angeles standards, offers picturesque views from every corner of the house - right from San Gabriel Mountains to the Channel Islands. The home is named 'Palazzo di Vista' which translates to the palace of views and offers every view one could imagine be it the coast, or mountains, or the sparkling city lights. Palazzo di Vista features seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, a Feng Shui pond for koi fish, a water wall, an infinity pool, an NFT gallery, an NFT art collection, exclusive art pieces, and an auto gallery as well.
Standout features of the house include glass and reflective surfaces, marble, and bronze. The cost of the marble used for construction is estimated at $7 million while the furniture is estimated at a million dollars. The living room includes a suspended hidden DJ console and smoke machines that rise from the floor with hydraulics lifts at the push of a button. The main house also features a champagne tasting room, a private cinema, indoor-outdoor style lounge areas, a glass elevator, a spa, a gym, and a master bedroom with spa-like bathroom for him and her. The house is listed on the market for a whopping $87.7 million and while Khadavi planned to live in the mansion himself, he couldn't afford to do so because of the massive maintenance cost.
“I don’t have a large family, and I don’t have the financial capability to enjoy the house. I borrowed a lot of money to get it to this level, and I can’t afford living in it," Khadavi said. He currently lives with his girlfriend and his Goldendoodle named Cheetos. He also said anyone who would purchase the home would "need to probably have a couple of butlers and a couple of maids."
