A new mansion has just hit the market in Beverly Hills.

At $80 million, it’s one of the most expensive houses on the market in the US. With 28,000 square feet of space, it’s also one of the largest.

The property is being sold by retail CEO Albert Elkouby, a property developer who also owns an apparel company called JH Design. The house was previously listed two years ago for $72 million, but it failed to sell in its half-finished state.

Described as a “French Chateau” in the listing, Elkouby’s home has every luxurious amenity and excess imaginable.

Sam Real of Nest Seekers International has the listing.


The 1.5-acre property was landscaped to look like it belonged in the French countryside.
