No region of the United States is as synonymous with luxury as Beverly Hills. But even within this glamorous city, there are neighborhoods that possess a higher degree of status. Beverly Park is one such community. Perched near the top of the Santa Monica mountains, this elite neighborhood boasts some of the world’s biggest names. Hollywood royalty like Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, and Sylvester Stallone count themselves amongst notable residents. Indeed, even the Saudi royal family claims a prestigious Beverly Park address. And now the opportunity presents itself to own a legendary property in this community with Villa Firenze, a one-of-a-kind mega-mansion. (Image Credit: Hilton & Hyland)
Though technically located in Los Angeles, Beverly Park is known to most as the heart of Beverly Hills. Not surprisingly, it is the richest area in LA. Home to many of the most affluent stars, businessmen and royals, the neighborhood contains two gated communities, North and South. Largest of the two, the elite North section has only 64 luxury homes, each offering an average of 20,000 square feet. And for bragging rights, Villa Firenze is the largest estate in the community.
Security and privacy are high priorities for residents of this affluent neighborhood. Consequently, two guarded checkpoints protect access. In addition, residences often have their own guarded and gated drives. Simply put, the dreaded “pop-in” does not exist in Beverly Park! These features only add to the exclusivity of this prestigious community.
Designed by acclaimed architect William Hablinski, this extraordinary property was designed to serve as a family compound for billionaire Steven Udvar-Hazy, the CEO of Air Lease Corporation. One of the most expensive homes in the world, Villa Firenze is unforgettable in every sense of the word. Each building on the property exudes and old European charm. In fact, one could easily imagine themselves living in an authentic Italian villa.

The property’s main house boasts over 28,000 square feet of living space. And it’s clear throughout that no expense was spared. For instance, imported French limestone makes for sparkling floors. Marble arches, columns and vaulted ceilings add a sense of romance. The neutral palette and rich woods create dramatic yet airy spaces. Moreover, two elegant portes-cochéres lead to a spacious courtyard.
Beyond the main house, this one-of-a-kind mega-mansion has numerous accommodations for overnight guests and staff. A separate 2-story guest house, 2-bedroom guest house, detached staff quarters and pool house add over 5,000 square feet of additional living space.
Villa Firenze sits upon a sprawling property of over seven acres. A dramatic drive leads to the luxury home and a 30 car courtyard. A central fountain, 40 foot Canary Island palm trees and impeccably manicured landscaping set a lavish scene reminiscent of an Italian palazzo.
The enormous pool is surely the highlight of the 4-acre backyard. With the same towering palms found in the front, elegant landscaping and bubbling fountains make the pool truly a homeowner’s oasis. Also, the surrounding patio provides ample space for sun worshipers.
Other features of this impressive estate include a tennis court, assorted grottoes and even an orchard. And what could be better than a stroll or jog around the grounds on the walking trail that meanders throughout the vast property. Moreover, should additional space be required, a connected two acre parcel is also available.
Fairytale properties like Villa Firenze are special. Above all, they don’t often come up on the real estate market. In short, if living in your personal Italian village is on your wish list, this property deserves a peek!
