There’s a new movement for the megamansion dubbed Opus. The deluxe Beverly Hills property, originally asking $100 million, and then chopped to $85 million in 2017, is being newly offered for $68 million.
“There’s a major deal here,” says new listing agent Rayni Williams.
She notes that the posh area known as Billionaires’ Row also includes the nearby Minecraft mansion, which sold for $70 million in 2014. “Opus is the same size, with the same view. We’re beneath that price,” Williams says.
Even though it’s a “deal,” the mansion is still the most expensive new listing this week on realtor.com®. For discriminating luxury buyers, the lower price point will be worth singing about.
Williams told us the 20,000-square-foot space has received a recent makeover, including completely new wide-plank oak flooring (in a “golden” shade) and texturized walls on both levels, including the beauty and wellness areas.
“The neutral palette gives it a softer look,” according to the agent.
There are still numerous eye-popping perks, including a Champagne cellar stocked with Cristal, a downstairs wine room with space for 7,000 bottles, as well as a dining table that seats 12 for tastings.
The fully furnished contemporary with unobstructed views of the city features seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and four half-baths on a little over an acre. Designed by architect Paul McClean, the spread also includes two pools, two kitchens, an oversized theater, a billiards room, and a car museum.
The high-end home, which sits in a cul-de-sac, is adjacent to some high-profile properties, like the Elvis Presley estate across the street, and the Danny Thomas estate two homes over, which sold in 2017 for a (heavily discounted) $65 million. Maybe this new price is the new sweet spot.
The upscale mansion, with its signature “O” sculpture out front, has seen its price cut by a third, but stands by its Opus moniker. “The street speaks for itself. The house doesn’t even need a name. There aren’t many lots that are like this,” Williams says.
