Developer Alan Casden wants $59M for his Beverly Hills family home

The home comes equipped with model trains

Forget gold Rolls-Royce or Lambos — model trains are all the rage now. At least that’s what retired residential developer Alan Casden and his wife Susan are hoping for.

The couple listed their Beverly Hills mansion, featuring two detached guesthouses and miniature trains that run throughout the property, at a whopping $58.8 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Spanning nearly 26,800 square feet, the home includes eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, 12 antique marble fireplaces from Europe, and a two-story library. An expansive lawn, croquet court, tennis court, swimming pool with water slide, two guesthouses each with their own garage, and train tracks accommodating both diesel and steam locomotives complete the outside.

Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker has the off-market listing.

Casden, who is now retired, developed between 110,000 to 120,000 residential housing units throughout his four decades in real estate. Him and his wife have since put their wealth into philanthropy, donating $10.6 million to the University of Southern California. [WSJ]Natalie Hoberman
