It’s no Casablanca, but this Beverly Hills abode owned by the cousin of Moroccan king Mohammed VI has already found a buyer.

The property, on North Beverly Drive, attracted an offer after just a month on the market, listed for $13.9 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The owner, Moulay Souleimane Cherkaoui, is the son of Princess Lalla Malika, the sister of Morocco’s late King Hassan II.

Spanning about 7,000 square feet, the 1991-built villa has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It features a library, theater room, a grand foyer and a formal dining room. French doors open up to the backyard, where there is a patio area and swimming pool.

The property, listed by Aouri Makhlouf of Coldwell Banker, previously traded hands for $7.3 million nine years ago, property records show. The identity of the prospective buyer was not immediately clear. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
