When this 1.88-acre "Italian/Colonial revival" estate in Bel Air hit the market in April asking $14.9 million, the listing called it "incredible value." Someone clearly agreed, and the property was just scooped up for an even $15 million, making it the biggest residential sale last week (the info didn't get added into the system in time to make Monday's list). The seven-bedroom, 9,300-square-foot house designed by Weston & Weston and built in 1928 sits on private grounds with a pool, art studio, and guest quarters, and has mirrored ceilings for days. It had been home to computer chip-maker Eric Lidow and his wife, the artist Leza Lidow, until he died earlier this year. The house and grounds are likely in line for some updating, at the very least.
