A month after boosting the asking price on his “Opus” spec mansion in Beverly Hills to $80 million, developer Nile Niami is bringing another behemoth to the market. No, it’s not his $500 million “The One,” the 20-bedroom off-market monster.

Niami has listed a 28,000-square-foot home on Bel Air’s Carcassonne Road for $65 million. The home was designed by prolific Los Angeles architect Paul McClean, Niami’s frequent partner who designed Opus and several other homes he’s developed.

This one remains nameless, but it is imposing nevertheless. The nine-bedroom, 17-bathroom mansion is packed with amenities. Besides the usual features, like a gym, wine cellar and screening room, there’s also a hair salon, a massage studio, meditation room, and smart home tech.

The backyard has a 30-foot-tall water wall and a 160-foot long swimming pool, a signature in many of Niami and McClean’s projects. Aaron Kirman and Jennie Priel with Compass have the listing.

Niami’s The One, a 100,000-square-foot compound was set to hit the market earlier this year, but hasn’t yet listed.

The Opus hit the market in 2017 for $100 million, then was chopped to $60 million before Niami bumped it back up to $80 million last month. He cited several nearby vacant lots that sold for tens of millions of dollars as reason for the increase.

In January, he listed his private home in West Hollywood for $55 million. In true Niami fashion, he hosted an extravagant open house complete with fire dancers, a camel and 500 guests, at a cost of around $100,000.
