Entertainment mogul Phil Maloof has become the latest member of his large sports and entertainment family to place a Los Angeles-area house on the market, listing his 11,679-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills for $16,995,000.
Maloof listed the six-bedroom mansion, which is referred to in listing information as "Villa Bouganvilla" (sic), on the day before Halloween.
Built in 2003, the Tuscan-style mansion -- which has been the site over the years of plenty of high-profile celebrity parties with stars like Britney Spears and Jamie Foxx -- has eight baths, high ceilings, decorator touches throughout, a master suite with a spa-like bath, a large gym with a steam shower and massage room, and a gourmet kitchen fully equipped for catering, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the 1.028-acre property include an infinity pool and spa with two waterfalls and a cabana, a putting green with a sand trap, and a two-story guest house with a game room and two bedroom suites, according to public records and listing information.
Records show that Maloof, who appeared several times as himself on NBC's now-canceled "Las Vegas" series, paid $8,700,000 in 2004 to purchase the mansion, which is on the same street as one of the Los Angeles area's largest single-family houses -- the 35,796-square-foot behemoth that the Mani Brothers purchased in 2004 for $13,000,000, according to public records (and that Michael Jackson was rumored to have rented at one time).
The Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff noted online back on October 22 that some of the other Maloof family members also have their Los Angeles-area homes on the market, including Phil's brother Joe listing his 7,425-square-foot house (or 6,100-square-foot, according to listing information) in Brentwood for $4,995,000, and Phil and Joe's mother listing her 10,971-square-foot mansion in the Mulholland Estates area of the Beverly Hills Post Office (which is next door to Judge Mathis' house!) for $10,995,000. (Colleen Maloof's mansion no longer appears to be on the market, according to our cursory read of the MLS.) Then, on November 9, Brenoff's print column re-ran her same blog post, except she also folded in Phil Maloof's listing of his mansion as well.
