The era of great new estates in Beverly HIlls, Holmby Hills, and Bel-Air is over. Or so some skeptics claim. Nobody can purchase enough flat or gently rolling land in those legendary neighborhoods. Skilled craftsmen cannot be found at any price. For once, the naysayers are wrong. Very wrong.
In 2002, the grand gates swung open ot the new Fleur de Lys estate in Holmby Hills. The five-acre Fleur de Lys has a 41,000-square-foot French inspired limestone mansion. The grounds include flat lawns, ornamental gardens, and mature trees that give this Holmby Hills estate a secluded country air. By any measure, the property was born a legendary estate and a grand rival of the greatest residences of the 1920s and 1930s.
