You have to realise something. Writing about million-dollar real estate as regularly as we do means that eventually, the majority of properties out there will naturally cease to impress you. Yet the excessive Los Angeles mansion of billionaire hedge fund manager – Jeffrey Feinberg – managed to provoke some form of emotion within us when it crossed the BH news desk, in all its US$44 million / AU$59.9 million extravagance.
The recently completed complex was built on spec by developer Ramtin Ray Nosrati. Situated on a 1.26-acre slice of Brentwood, California and offers 55,000 square feet of living space – which includes the seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and two-storey guesthouse. One could easily find themselves in need of a search + rescue team, or at the very least, Google Maps. While this palatial monstrosity comes with plenty of rooms and plenty of unbelievable amenities, one thing you won’t encounter here is subtlety. There isn’t so much of a Los Angeles vibe as there is, oh I don’t know… a Las Vegas one(?)
“The house is basically like a resort, with all the bells and whistles you can think of and dream of,” says Ramtin Ray Nosrati.
There are the bog-standard inclusions you’d expect from a pad of this calibre – e.g. bespoke wet bar, world-class theatres w/ fibre-optic ceilings to simulate the night’s sky, fully-equipped kitchen, bathrooms rich with imported marble, two gorgeous swimming pools (indoor + infinity-edge outdoor), gym, office, etc. – and then there are the not-so-standard highlights.
We’re talking a three-hole putting green, high-tech games room with sports simulators, TV walls, double-height great room, 1,000-gallon aquarium, linear fireplace w/ monolithic stone wall, a bloody car showroom, an entire wellness suite, hair salon, and originally after initial construction – a goddamn cannabis garden on the rooftop alive with marijuana plants. Prior to picking up the keys, however, Feinberg reportedly fired off an email to Nosrati requesting the good stuff be replaced with carrots and cucumbers. Lame.
Given Feinberg is a longtime basketball fan, his newly-purchased mansion also comes with a half-court decked out in the Lakers’ royal purple + gold, printed with the name “Kobe” and “24” (as required by law for all residents of Los Angeles, /s). Throughout the home, pictures of superstars such as LeBron James and Mamba himself can be seen.
