The top five residential sales in Los Angeles County last week totaled $73.5 million combined, well below the top home sale from the week before.

That outlier was Bruce Makowsky’s $94 million Bel Air spec mansion, dubbed “The Billionaire.” It had originally listed for $250 million, before several price chops.

This week, the priciest luxury sale was a $32 million Beverly Hills mansion. The No 2 spot was notable in that it was the highest-price a home sold for in Encino in two years.

The data and information was compiled from the Multiple Listing Service and Redfin from Oct. 29-Nov. 4.

837 Greenway Drive | Beverly Hills | $32.3M

This 10,730-square-foot mansion quietly sold for $3,010 per square foot, a higher amount than other recent Beverly Hills properties. For instance: Former No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband, Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale, sold a nearby mansion for $21.7 million in October, or about $1,400 per square foot. For the Greenway Drive sale, Mauricio Umansky and Jon Grauman of The Agency represented the seller, and James Harris, also of The Agency, represented the buyer. The estate features a view of the L.A. Country Club and Century City.

3904 Meadow Road | Encino | $14.1M

The sale of this mansion was the highest price in Encino since May 2017, when a mansion sold for $27 million, according to Redfin’s database. The home is 15,000 square feet, with 10 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. That pencils out to $940 per square foot. Adi Livyatan of Rodeo Realty and Dennis Chernov of Keller Williams Realty represented the seller. Carl Gambino of Westside Agency represented the buyer. It was designed by Topanga firm Jae Omar Design.

772 Sarbonne Road | Bel Air | $10.5M

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion built was in 1937. The 4,150-square-foot home sold for $2,404 per square foot. Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates listed the property, and Max First of Vantage Estates represented the buyer. The home has views of the ocean view, and includes an opportunity to expand, with 17,000 buildable square feet, according to the marketing material.

1730 Rising Glen Road | Hollywood Hills West | $9.6M

The five-bedroom, six-bathroom property features a “gold quartzite fireplace” and “shell stone leather limestone wall,” according to the marketing material, along with a view of Laurel Canyon. Redfin does not list a square footage, but according to Zillow, it is 6,500 square feet. Paul Wyle and Richard Albert of Lamerica represented the seller, and Cathy Greenly of Coldwell Banker represented the buyer.

535 Haynes Avenue | Trousdale Estates | $7M

This 4,602-square-foot mid-century home has a sunken living room and fireplace at the center of the main interior space. Most of the rooms open to the backyard patio and pool area. The home has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. There’s also a rooftop lounge area. Josh and Matthew Altman with Douglas Elliman had the listing.
