A former castle by the sea in Malibu made it to the top of last week’s priciest listings.
The nearly complete 15,200 square foot spec mansion on Malibu Crest Drive, called “the New Castle,” has an asking price of $80 million, or $5,263 a square foot.
It sits on the site of the former Castle Kashan owned by philanthropist and international socialite Lilly Lawrence, whose father, Reza Fallah, was once the oil minister for the Shah of Iran. The property burned down in 2007, and Lawrence sold the land to an entity connected to Gillen in 2015.
The 11,000-square-foot main house has a teak library-like wine room and teak, humidifier cigar room. The teak room alone cost $1 million, according to listing agent Alessandro Dazzan of Coldwell Banker Residential.
