8 Most Expensive Houses in LA in 2022

| |

The average home in Los Angeles is worth $928,320. For its nearly 4 million people, this equates to a struggle for livable housing in any of the areas that Los Angeles encompasses, including the luxurious neighborhood known as Bel Air.

For this list, we compiled the 8 most expensive houses that you can buy in LA. They are all decadent American palaces with tens of thousands of square feet to work with and the amenities of a luxury resort. We did not include properties in Beverly Hills since that’s technically its own city, best saved for its own list.

The house at 133 S Mapleton Dr should look like something out of grand Spanish public works architecture. There’s a reason for that — it’s based on the Reina Sofia Museum, which is in Madrid, Spain. Naturally, the house was originally commissioned by a classic art collector and built in LA on the street known as Holmby Hills.

The rooms have sky-high ceilings, like the museum, with natural light weaving in and out to accentuate its décor. The columns in the house are classic 400-year-old carven Moorish structures. The ceilings are carved in Florentine designs from the 16th and 17th centuries.

The house is currently for sale for $65,000,000.
