Fleur de Lys, the Westside mansion that recently sold for a Southern California record-breaking price of $102 million, is now available for lease for $400,000 a month to long-term tenants.
The timing is good for the new, and as yet unidentified, owner. Another mega estate, historic Beverly House in Beverly Hills, reentered the for-sale market at $135 million and also is available to let at $600,000 a month -- making Fleur de Lys look like a relative bargain.
Fleur de Lys claims roughly 50,000 square feet of living space on five acres. The France/East Coast-inspired estate is a dozen years old and was designed as a decorative arts museum of sorts. About $8 million in French antiquities were auctioned before the mansion was sold.
Amenities include a ballroom for parties up to 500, a dozen bedrooms and a swimming pool and spa complex.
Prequalified tenants will have to pony up a $1-million security deposit.
Fred Bernstein and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency, who sold the behemoth record-breaker, are also the leasing agents.
