Another Los Angeles mansion owned by an entity linked to Mikhail Lesin, Russia’s former minister of communications and mass media, hit the market last week, asking $23 million. 

The French Mediterranean-style mansion is owned by Dastel Holdings, an entity registered to Lesin’s son, the Hollywood movie producer Anton Lessine. Dastel purchased it for $9 million in 2012, property records show.

The 13,056-square-foot Brentwood estate has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

There’s a wine cellar, a dry sauna with a steam shower, an elevator and a formal dining room with a butler’s pantry. The estate also has an underground parking garage and surveillance cameras, according to listing details. 

Glenda Lousignont of Gibson International has the listing.

Dastel also has a 13,500-square-foot Beverly Park mansion on the market, asking $28 million. 

Lesin, who died in a Washington, D.C. hotel room in 2015, is reported to have purchased more than $28 million worth of real estate in Los Angeles, after moving to L.A. in 2009. 

While his son appears to be trimming some of the family’s real estate holdings, he did scoop up an 11,150-square-foot home in the Pacific Palisades for $15.8 million in February.
