In Beverly Hills, a sprawling estate formerly owned by actors Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman hit the market for $85 million this week. The now-split celebrity couple sold the pad to lawyer Stuart Liner and his wife, Stephanie, three years ago for $28 million. They’ve since doubled the size of the home, bringing it up to 29,000 square feet spread across four structures. The property now includes a hair salon, seven-bedroom main house, eight-car garage, wine cellar, screening room and lounge. Despite its heavy price tag, the Beverly Hills manse is just the latest deal for the Liners, who have bought and sold 21 homes.

Bui Simon, a former Miss Universe winner-turned-philanthropist, dropped $34 million to acquire a stately home in the Pacific Palisades. It was formerly owned and built by Michael King, the TV producer who syndicated “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” as well as “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy.” The English manor-style home has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a home theater and yoga room spread across 15,600 square feet of living space. Simon is married to Herbert Simon, chairman of the massive REIT, Simon Property Group, and owner of the Indiana Pacers.

Jordanian billionaire Hasan Ismaik has put his Holmby Hills estate on the market for $70 million. The pad, originally built as a spec home by developer Nile Niami, features 10 bedrooms, a bowling alley, wine cellar, movie theater and basement “operating room.” It’s situated on South Mapleton Drive, nearby to the former Playboy mansion, as well as to the homes of director Ridley Scott and Sean “Diddy” Combs. Ismaik is the former CEO of Arabtec, a Dubai-based real estate company.

A Malibu couple is looking to sell their unusual home, which is built into a cliffside, for $57.5 million. Named “Il Pelicano” for the frequenting pelicans, the house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It’s built entirely with a European influence, and features imported materials like custom-designed tiles from Rome and stone imported from Italy. The sellers, trial attorney lawyer Dale F. Kinsella and Radical Skincare founder Liz Edlich, paid $2 million for the land in 2000.

And in Beverly Park, a Pittsburgh couple bought a Tuscan-style mansion for $25 million. The buyers, Robert and Miryam Knutson, were top executives at Education Management Corp., the umbrella company for the Art Institutes’ system of art schools. Sitting atop 3.6 acres, the home includes a six-car garage, tennis court and guest house. It’s rumored to have been built by a relative of notorious Indonesian dictator Muhammad Suharto.
