One of Nations Top Sales
Sky Garden, Bel Air
Sold at $60,000,000
Sometimes all you need is a really good concept (and some equally good renderings). That was the pitch for developer Viewpoint Collection, who presented a 21,000-square-foot home by South African design firm SAOTA—and sold it. The home is partially built, so there’s some evidence that the glitzy renderings will come to life as advertised, and the location on top of Bel Air does provide stellar views, to say the least. The final product will also include a separate guest house with its own private deck and pool; a larger, infinity-edge pool; an indoor wellness center with a gym, sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge pools; and not one, not two, but four kitchens.
