The Beverly Hills home of Moulay Souleimane Cherkaoui, a member of the royal family of Morocco, has sold for $12.5 million.

The two-story Mediterranean villa-style house, built in 1991, sits behind fences and hedges on a nearly half-acre site. Palladian windows flank the front entry and bring in views to the living and family rooms. Contemporary wrought ironwork and limestone floors embellish the grand foyer.

The 7,020 square feet of living space includes an office/library, a remodeled kitchen with an island, a formal dining room and a theater room. The master suite has a glass-enclosed shower and soaking tub for a total of five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.


French doors line the rear of the home and take in the backyard swimming pool, lawns and patio area.

The house had been listed for $13.888 million, records show. Aouri Makhlouf of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage had the listing. Stephany Chen and Steven Dubin of Teles Properties represented the buyer.

Cherkaoui is the son of Princess Lalla Malika, the sister of late King Hassan II. His cousin, Mohammed VI, is the current king of Morocco.
