Steven Udvar-Házy and his wife Christine made headlines this week for their chart-topping asking price of $165 million on their Beverly Park mansion. The Mediterranean-style home, named “Villa Firenze,” spans over 28,600 square feet, and includes a two-story guest house, cabana, tennis court and swimming pool on a 12.5-acre compound. It’s one of many castle-like estates found in the gated Beverly Park neighborhood, home to uber-wealthy individuals like Tom Gores, Mark Wahlberg and Ed Glazer. Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland has the pocket listing.

In Bel Air, soap opera production executive Bill Bell Jr. and his wife, writer-producer Maria Arena Bell, listed their mansion for $38 million. The Wallace Neff-designed property has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms encompassing 13,360 square feet of living space. A swimming pool and spa complete the outside. The 1930s-built estate has traded hands among a number of Hollywood elites, including Elvis Presley, Howard Hughes and Beverly Hills city co-founder Dolly Green. Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency has the listing.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is now the latest owner of DJ Moby’s former pad in Los Feliz. The “Wolf of Wall Street” star paid $4.9 million for the recently renovated estate, which includes five bedrooms, a swimming pool, steam room and security system. Moby listed the home in February, Mansion Global reported. It’s unclear whether the actor will live in the home or use it as one of his many investment properties. Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland represented DiCaprio.

Meanwhile, award-winning singer Taylor Swift, who splits time among a handful of multi-million-dollar residences on both coasts, quietly sold a home in Beverly Hills to fashion heir Nicolas Bijan Pakzad for $4 million. The two-parcel estate includes four bedrooms, a guesthouse and tennis court, on a 1.4-acre spread. An office, vine-covered arbors and outdoor fireplace are among the property’s amenities, the Los Angeles Times reported. Swift, famous for hits like “Shake It Off” and “Love Story,” bought the home in 2011 for $3.55 million.
