Fleur de Lys owner buys smaller estate in Beverly Hills for $9.5M

Suzanne Saperstein used to live in one of L.A.'s most expensive manors

The former owner of L.A.’s Versailles, the estate known as Fleur de Lys, has a new pad.

Suzanne Saperstein acquired a 7,500-square-foot residence in Beverly Hills for $9.5 million. Though the socialite has downgraded from the 50,000-square-foot manor she and her then-husband custom built 14 years ago, Saperstein’s new property is not too shabby, either.

The 1920s-era house sits on a half-acre of land in the flats of Beverly Hills and has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a library. The gated property also features a tennis court, swimming pool and spa.

Attorney Michael Waddington represented Saperstein in the deal. Susan Smith and Avrille Krom of Hilton & Hyland were the listing agents, the L.A. Times reported.

Fleur de Lys entered the market just three years after its completion, when the Sapersteins filed for divorce. It sold in 2014 in one of the most expensive residential sales in L.A. County history, for $102 million — in cash. [LAT] – Cathaleen Chen
