You can buy a home for $200,000 in Riverside County, or with $72 million, you can likely buy all of Riverside County. Or you can spend that $72 million on this French Chateau in Bel Air. A residence that appeared on "American Idol," according to Big Time Listings, the 10-bedroom home is owned by well-known area homebuilder Mohamed Hadid and hit the market back in February for $85 million before dropping a mere $13 last week. The home, which has the nickname, Le Belvedere, even has an official web site. Verdict: Too much wood. Too busy. Migraine. Can't breathe. Who doesn't like inspecting a $72 million chateau, but this one just has too much going on. Do over!
