The top five priciest listings in Los Angeles County last week totaled $213 million, roughly $66 million more than the previous week. That bump was largely driven by developer Gala Asher’s massive Wallingford Estate in Beverly Hills, which relisted for $110 million. The list also had celebrity connections, including a very famous game show co-host whose Beverly Hills mansion is on the market. Would anyone like to buy a vowel?

The remaining three that hit the market — in the Bird Streets, Sunset Strip and Bel Air — all are listed for $18 million and up. The listing prices on Los Angeles homes continue to far exceed the closed sales totals, suggesting sellers may be eager to unload their pricey properties in a volatile market.

The data and information was pulled from the Multiple Listings Service and Redfin from Sept. 17-23, 2019.

2571 Wallingford Drive | Beverly Hills | $110 million

Developer Gala Asher reduced the price of his massive Wallingford Estate, which was slashed from its original $135 million list last year. The palatial estate, located near the Beverly Hills Hotel, sits on 5 acres and includes a 38,000-square-foot main house, 5,000-square-foot guest house and a sports facility. It also claims to hold the biggest zero-edge pool in Beverly Hills. Asher bought the pad for $22 million in 2016, then later completed a renovation and expansion. Ginger Glass of Compass holds the listing.

75 Beverly Park Lane | Beverly Hills | $38 million

A 15,000-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Beverly Park community hit the market for $38 million recently. Records show the home is tied to longtime “Wheel of Fortune” co-host Vanna White. Though the property remains in White’s name, she hasn’t lived there since her and her ex-husband George Santo Pietro divorced in 2002, Mansion Global reported. The Tuscan-style estate boasts eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and a wine cellar. It first hit the market for $47.5 million in 2017. Mauricio Umansky of the Agency has the listing.

9133 Oriole Way | Bird Streets| $27.9 million

Russell Weiner, the founder of Rockstar Energy drink, has put his newly purchased home in the Bird Streets back a mere two weeks after buying it. He also tacked on $11.5 million to its asking price. The modern home is now on the market for nearly $28 million. Weiner bought the home from tech entrepreneur Lynda Weinman. It spans 12,530 square feet, and includes six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Katelyn Byrd of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the listing.

8854 Thrasher Avenue | Sunset Strip | $18.8 million

A modern residence designed by Studio Dardo re-listed for $18.6 million last week, roughly $10 million less than what it originally listed for in February 2018. Spanning 10,000 square feet, the spec home includes five bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. There’s also a swimming pool, gym and sweeping city views. The home last traded for $6.7 million in 2013, and was most recently listed for $26 million in July. Blair Chang of the Agency has the listing.

809 Nimes Place | Bel Air | $18.5 million

Third time’s the charm? Former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs is trying to sell her Balinese-inspired home in Bel Air for the third time in six years. The 4,770-square-foot home is on the market for $18.5 million, which is $3 million more than its 2015 asking price. Tiegs bought the home for $2.5 million in 1996. The home includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms and a swimming pool. Jade Mills and Tiffany Mills of Coldwell Banker share the listing.
