Metropoulos scion lands his own trophy estate on the Westside

 Is there a sibling rivalry brewing on the Westside? Six months ago, Daren Metropoulos closed a record deal for the Playboy Mansion. Now his brother, Evan, has landed his own trophy estate in what is L.A. County’s priciest home sale to date this year.

Here’s a larger look at the most expensive home sales recorded in late February through early March.

$65 million — Beverly Hills

The onetime home of late comedian and actor Danny Thomas, listed for $135 million last year, sold for $70 million less than the asking price in a deal finalized off-market. The buyer was a limited liability with ties to Evan Metropoulos, son of billionaire investor C. Dean Metropoulos.

Occupying 2 acres on North Hillcrest Road, one of the most coveted spots in Beverly Hills, the knoll-top estate takes sweeping city and canyon panoramas from all sides.

The 11,880-square-foot house, built in 1970, boasts such gilded details as Baccarat chandeliers, gold-leaf ceilings and ornate tilework. A ballroom, a rotunda dining room, a media room, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms are among the living spaces. Moorish arches feature prominently inside and out.

Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent.
