This Mansion is Centred Around an Allosaurus Skeleton
November 14, 2019 - Beverly Hills
The Agency RE has just listed a stunning mansion in the Beverly Hills area. Priced at $37,950,000, the “Dino Home” features 5 bedrooms, 9 baths, and sees over 12,500 sq-ft in space.
The home’s amenities include a 1,000-foot driveway, fitness studio, sauna, a Calacatta porcelain steam room, 600-bottle wine room, 12-seat movie theatre, a 945 sq-ft 4-car car garage, an infinity pool, Aquitanian marble fireplaces, and a full skeleton of an Allosaurus dinosaur that’s on loan from a private collector.
Every detail was thought through when designing the home, and brought to life by interior designer Lorenzo Cascino where he injected Italian design throughout the mansion.
Tim Ralston of MLR, the Portland, Ore.-based development company behind the mansion project, said he obtained the $1.5 million Allosaurus, which lived 155 million years ago during the late Jurassic period, by partnering with a private collector.
Mr. Ralston is hoping the dinosaur skeleton will help capture buyers’ attention. “It seems like there is a desire among some of these high-end homeowners to have a distinctive visual feature as a focal point of the home,” he said.
The Allosaurus is not included in the sale, but is available separately, said Stefan Pommepuy of The Agency.
