A 3,400-square-foot condominium at the luxe 24-story Carlyle Residences tower hit the market at a resale price of $6.95 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The condo at 10776 Wilshire Boulevard has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, Venetian plaster walls, showroom closets by L.A. Closet Design and an LED-lit fireplace controlled by a home automation system. It has floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Century City and Santa Monica.

Entrepreneur and investor Khalid Al-Askar owns the “Batman”-inspired property, which he designed entirely alongside his wife. Al-Askar initially intended to live in the property, but ended up moving back to Kuwait before he was given the chance.

“It was designed to fit perfectly together,” said Al-Askar. “Even the Italian LED lighting was chosen on a per room basis taking into account the theme, color and nature of each space in the unit.”

Al-Asker paid $4.1 million for the unit in 2015, property records show.

Stacy Gottula and Mauricio Umansky of the Agency have the listing.

Elad Group’s Carlyle condos in Westwood sold out in 2016, six years after the building was completed. Total sales reached over $275 million, averaging $1,044 per square foot.
