An $88 million LA home with its own NFT art gallery – international property of the week

An infinity pool, retractable DJ deck and enormous koi pond are other features of this uber-contemporary home

From a retractable DJ deck to a koi pond that’s as big as a swimming pool, this Los Angeles home is brimming with unusual features.

Also out of the ordinary is its asking price of $87,777,777.

The key details

Dubbed Palazzo di Vista, the uber-contemporary home was built by celebrity reconstructive surgeon Alex Khadavi, who worked with Ali Rad Design Group to create his dream home on a promontory in Bel Air.

Offering expansive LA views that stretch from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Channel Islands, the property is a masterclass in decadence. Even its master bathroom is described by the listing agent as “rivalling a seven-start resort”.

There’s also an infinity pool, outdoor bar, glass elevator and Disneyland-esque water features. The pool is fitted with seven-horsepower jets that can be co-ordinated with music – meaning swimmers can literally feel the beat.

What’s the story?

The property sits on a plot of about half a hectare and features seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, including a master wing with a wraparound deck and that aforementioned "seven-star" bathroom.

There are several dining areas, both indoors and outdoors, as well as a private cinema, various lounge areas, a stand-alone guesthouse and glass walkways. The large, minimalist kitchen opens to the elements via two glass walls.

Another standout feature is the home’s non-fungible token (NFT) art gallery, which includes seven large-screen media displays and a rotatable 2D laser projector that casts light over the pool, mimicking the Disney California Adventure Park’s World of Colour attraction.

Featured in the multisensory gallery are artworks by Ghost Girl, Andy Moses, Shane Guffogg and Jimi Gleason. The NFTs and physical pieces are not included in the listing price but are negotiable.

What the brokers say…

According to the listing on TopTenRealEstateDeals.com: “[Khadavi's] success in the cosmetic-medical field made it possible to fulfil one of his dreams: design and build, in collaboration with Ali Rad Design Group, Palazzo di Vista, a contemporary-futuristic home that includes a first-of-its-kind, multisensory art gallery.

“It is located on top of a promontory in Bel Air with some of LA’s best views.”
