The Lowdown: What's an $8.5 million price chop between friends? This may be the start of Hotels Week, and this may look like a hotel, but it is in fact a single family residence. A totally ridiculous single family residence. Built by Dream Projects LA, the property has "two guest houses, separate theatre structure, grand living room, a formal dining room for twenty, two offices, playroom, game room, wine tasting room, sports court, and gym." With parking for 20 and TVs in every room, It's "infused with old world class and spectacular magic."

The Lowdown: Man, the Pacific Palisades is dominating the biggest sales posts this month. The staging in this "brand new sophisticated Tuscan Villa" makes the place look like a monastery compared to the priciest house of the week, if a monastery had "one of the sexiest infinity pool and spas." The house has formal entertaining rooms, movie theater, wine cellar, two loggias, an outdoor bar, seating area, and firepit, and two garages, each with its own motor court.

The Lowdown: This is the infamous Germany's Next Top Model house (with a slight address change) where a firefighter died in 2011; the architect was charged with manslaughter. It was built in 2011 and now has two master suites with "soaking tubs, sauna, & oversized starlet-worthy closets," a media room and a yoga room.
