Record-breaking $102-million L.A. mansion is for lease at $400,000

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.
