‘Opus’ Returns for Another Recital as the Week’s Most Expensive Home


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.

Opus estate is back on the market.


Expansive indoor and outdoor space with two pools


Living room with views of the city


Formal dining room


Bar area


Wellness center with indoor pool, plunge pools, and gym


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.
