After months of shopping outside the market and at least two escrow accounts broken off, HRH Prince Turki bin Nasser of Saudi Arabia has finally decided to launch his epic Beverly Park site on the open market, hoping the palace property will get warmer Reception there. The $ 39.95 million request corresponds to the price tag attached to the property during the first round, like a pocket list.
Beverly Park is arguably the most prestigious residential complex in LA and has three guarded entrances and 24/7 security patrols. The neighborhood of around 70 properties lies high in the mountains above Beverly Hills, was developed in the 1980s and is particularly known for its collection of exceptionally large houses. The smallest house in the community measures approximately 8,000 square meters - a manor house in every respect - and the largest apartment buildings can exceed 30,000 square meters.

It's no secret that at least four of the oversized homes in Beverly Park belong to different members of the Saudi royal family. Of these four, Prince Turki's distribution is certainly the largest and also one of the largest in the entire enclave. There are two separate villas and a detached staff quarters on an area of almost five hectares with two plots. According to real estate reports, the Disneyland-style confectionery has a total living space of around 43,000 square meters with 22 bedrooms and 39 unfathomable bathrooms.
The Alsaud family has been the owner of the property since the early 1990s and built the current houses in 1995 according to tax documents. However, the listing of photos shows that Prince Turki and his royal retinue have probably not been on the site for a long time. The maintenance-intensive property appears to be essentially empty, with only a few pieces of furniture scattered around the huge houses. And the entire property looks inside and out as if it would benefit from a thorough renovation. The interior of the house is undoubtedly luxurious, but decoratively outdated. The gardens seem a bit run down.
The main house in Mediterranean style extends over a 26,000 square meter mega-mansion with 14 beds and 22 bathrooms and offers a spacious car space for guests and a smaller secondary car space next to the attached garage for four cars. Double doors open to a large entrance gallery with twin stairs, and there are acres of white marble and gold fixtures everywhere. A huge living room - or maybe a ballroom - offers a cavernous fireplace, hardwood floors, and French doors that lead to a loggia. A similar cave-like, but surprisingly outdated family room offers space for all seven of Prince Turki's adult children and for their various spouses. There's also a dining room with a custom table that can accommodate 35 people, according to the listing, and a 4,000-square-foot master suite with two dressing rooms, two bathrooms, and a bedroom that is so large that it's practically considered commercial storage space.
The 14,000 m² guest house is decorated in the imitation style of the main house and has similar furniture and surfaces. Adjacent to the guest house is a 3,000-square-foot tower-like structure to accommodate excess staff with space between the buildings for multiple cars. According to property records, there are 8 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms in the guest house and staff building alone.
Prince Turki's estate sits on top of a hill and is one of the few hotels in Beverly Park that have a clear, though distant, view of the LA Basin and even the Pacific. The main house also has a large infinity pool and a large terrace for a large crew of sun worshipers.
His royal highness's immediate neighbors include a lot of Hollywood stars: Sofia Vergara, Eddie Murphy, Rod Stewart, Denzel Washington, Kimora Lee Simmons, Sylvester Stallone and Mark Wahlberg are all sugar-free. For a few years, Steve Harvey and his wife Marjorie rented an estate in Beverly Park, just two doors from the Prince Turki compound, even though they have since moved to their gigantic new mega-mansion in Atlanta.
In the 1970s, Prince Turki was one of many Saudi kings and businessmen arrested in Riyadh in 2017 for allegations of corruption, although the matter has apparently been resolved. The skilled fighter pilot and arms dealer continues to maintain an international real estate portfolio, including lavish villas in Riyadh, Barcelona and London, and is still considered one of the richest men in Saudi Arabia and the Arab world.
