438 N Faring Rd, Los Angeles, CA
For sale: $48 million

The builder of this home in Holmby Hills is used to high-end clientele. He designed the fashion district in Milan.

In fact, most of the work done by Estate Four is high-end commercial, which makes this project particularly special. As if a $48 million spec house isn’t special on its own. The home was designed by Quinn Architects of London.

The most striking thing about the 16,000-square-foot home, which has 7 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, may be its scale. The entryway has 20-foot ceilings. Walls of glass and sliding doors give each space a grand, luxurious feel.

Some large homes have a well-appointed library. This home has two. Some sumptuous master suites include a walk-in closet or two. This home has three.

All that, and an Italian-influenced, European modern feel that makes it unique in the Platinum Triangle of Los Angeles, where huge, beautiful estates are the norm.

“It’s just the whole package. It really is,” said David Parnes of The Agency, who holds the listing along with Mauricio Umansky and James Harris. “It’s an experience to go into the house.”
