A look inside the $150M Holmby Hills spec house

Property formerly owned by Barbra Streisand is second most expensive to hit market in past year

For $150 million, you too could live the dream in a freshly constructed spec home in Holmby Hills. 

The 2.2-acre property, which was once owned by Barbra Streisand and dubbed “Mon Rêve,” now features a 38,000-square-feet main house and several guest houses, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Listed by Coldwell Banker Previews International’s Ginger Glass, the estate contains 10 bedrooms, a spa with its own hair salon and indoor swimming pool, a wine room, and a hiking trail within the lot. It has two additional swimming pools — infinity edged, of course — outside.

The Mon Rêve spec house rings in as the second most expensive listing to hit the market in the past year. It is second only to its neighbor the Playboy Mansion, which has a price tag of $200 million. The famous, or infamous, home of Hugh Hefner, however, was deemed over-valued by Josh Flagg of Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Realty and Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Listing.” He told The Real Deal earlier this year that the property was worth $90 million, tops.

The spec house was developed by Gala Asher of Beverly Hills-based Dream Projects L.A., who paid $13.3 million for the lot in 2014 from tech entrepreneur David Bohnett.

Bohnett had used the parcel as his own private park after purchasing it for $6.8 million from Les Bider, former chairman of Warner/Chappell Music Inc. and current co-CEO of the healthcare company PinnacleCare. Before all that, Streisand’s longtime house sat on the property. It was demolished around 2000. [WSJ]Cathaleen Chen
