What would you buy with 125 million dollars? Would you consider giving up all those buckets of money to own the Fleur de Lys Mansion in Los Angeles?
The Fleur de Lys estate is owned by philanthropist Suzanne Saperstein. It is approximately 30,000 square feet of French inspired opulence built over the course of five years. On the market since 2009 (we wonder why), the home boasts 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, 9 garages and two kitchens. Let’s put this in perspective. As owner of the Fleur de Lys, you could sleep in a different bedroom every night for almost two weeks! You wouldn’t need to use the same bathroom facilities more than once a day. If you hadn’t spent all your money on the house, you would have room to securely stow away nine new cars.
Two kitchens. Makes you think, right? Is two kitchens really excessive? Anyone who has has entertained a dozen or more family members on a busy holiday can probably see the value in two kitchens. One kitchen could be cranking out the sweets while the other cranks out the savory. Or maybe one kitchen is specifically for vegetarians, designated shellfish free, or for kosher cooking? When you start thinking like that…it sounds like everyone should have two kitchens – not just Suzanne.
On a final note, the Fleur de Lys is 10 times bigger than the average U.S.home (according to the the U.S Census Bureau). At $125 million it better be, right? In fact, at 125 million dollars it had better clean itself, pay its own taxes, and have a self mowing lawn. Well that’s just one opinion. What do you think? Join us for a conversation on Facebook!
