Home of the week: A sultan’s palace in Bel-Air

Home of the Week | Bel-Air

The 20,000-square-foot home in Old Bel-Air is listed for sale at $37.5 million.

This palatial home is fit for royalty, which makes sense, given that it was commissioned for the family of the sultan of Brunei in the late 1990s.

But the family never moved into the Italian villa, near Conrad Hilton’s longtime estate in Old Bel-Air. Instead, it was sold unfinished and later completed in 2003.

Designed for large-scale entertaining, interiors boast grand yet finely proportioned formal areas, billiards and screening rooms and a lavish wine cellar. A two-lane driveway, motor court and subterranean garage provide parking for more than 40 vehicles.
