The owner behind a small, aging property on tony Stradella Road in Bel Air is looking for a drastic upgrade.

An individual named Mahshid Soleimani filed plans to build a three-story mansion that would span over 16,000 square feet of living space, according to a document published with the Department of City Planning.

Amenities at the 1.4-acre property would include a five-car garage, landscaped backyard and swimming pool.

The 2,200-square-foot residence that currently exists at 1298 N. Stradella Road would be demolished to make room for the new home. One oak tree would also have to be relocated, according to the filing.

Soleimani acquired full ownership of the property from her ex-husband, cardiologist Tourage Soleimani, in 2008, property records show. The deed transfer cites divorce as the reason for the transfer.

It’s unclear when the pair first bought the property.

Prior to the split, the Soleimanis invested in real estate properties around Los Angeles with their in-laws. They co-owned a five-unit apartment building at 3741 Keystone Avenue, and the Armacost West Condominiums at 1730 Armacost Avenue. Both properties were the subject of a lawsuit filed in 2014, records show.

Stradella Road is home to a number of other mansions, primarily spec homes.

In late 2016, British entrepreneur Howard Shore paid $39 million for a Paul McClean-designed spec home on the 800 block of Stradella Road. Just a few steps away, a new property built on a site formerly owned by movie producer and director Michael Bay sold for $41 million last December.

An infamous party house, now tied up in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, is also located on Stradella Road. Convicted felon Paul Manafort invested in the property with his former son-in-law, Jeffrey Yohai.
