Bel-Air Chateau Breaks Record For Most Expensive Real Estate Sale of 2010

Via LA Times: The recent purchase of a Bel-Air mansion has broken the record for most expensive real estate transaction in the United States so far in 2010. Developer Mohamed Hadid sold the property Le Belvedere to an unnamed LLC for a price between $50 million and $72 million (the asking price), exceeding the $46.5 million sale of a Colorado property earlier this year. The French chateau-inspired mansion features a Moroccan entertaining room, a Turkish steam bath room, an infinity pool, an industrial kitchen with pizza oven, and a 5,000-bottle wine cellar.
