Supposedly Mariah Carey was trying to buy it but I don't think that sale ever went through.

I love that Fleur de Lys estate in Bel Air, used to drive past it all the time, but it has been lingering on the market for years and they finally pulled it off the market.

Clearly much too overpriced. But much better than that ugly Spelling Mansion.

The backyard is pretty unique, it's elevated so it makes the house look like it's only one level

If you look from this angle and to the right side of the house you can see what I mean.

I don't really know if I like it to be honest...the whole elevated backyard thing is kinda weird.
I've driven around on that island... Beautiful, giant homes mostly.

Agreed. The neighbors must be having a fit.

Am I the only one that thinks that looks like an '80's Vegas Hotel?
