Sunset Mega-Mansion Owner's Starter Chateau in Benedict Canyon

New, 22 comments

You know real estate investor C. Frederick Wehba II as the guy who built the 36,000 square foot Sunset Boulevard mega-mansion with the gold-plated doorknobs, 35 pound shower heads, and 800 square foot master bedroom. He recently pricechopped that house down to $55 million and, reports Realtor.com, has also relisted his house in Benedict Canyon with a markdown. We're not sure if Wehba built the 1987 house, but either way you can see in it the design seedlings that would one day grow into the big, strong, gold-plated Venus Flytraps of the Sunset house (hey, at least the window treatments have been dialed back). It has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a dining room, a butler's pantry, a breakfast room, a gym, and a pool in a very modest 9,163 square feet. Once listed for $8.8 million, it's now asking $7.995 million.
