Dr. Carla Sands, current U.S. Ambassador to Denmark, recently slashed the asking price on her Bel-Air mansion to $25.8 million.
Sands originally listed the luxurious villa for $37 million last year. With a significantly reduced price, the six-bedroom Italian-style estate set on four acres should have an easier time finding a new owner.
Potential buyers will likely be drawn to the 14,700-square-foot home’s classic charm and elegant finishes. Timeless accents include a tiled roof, multiple archways, hardwood floors, wood paneling, and generously high ceilings, making for a formal approach to the warm style.
The interiors feature very entertaining-friendly spaces, with formal living and dining rooms that would perhaps be a bit empty without a crowd. The home’s office, with its fireplace and bar, presents itself as a dignified space; built-ins and a lot of classic warmth, with a touch of rigid traditionalism tossed in for effect.
Opportunities to entertain continue to the outdoor living spaces, with several lounging spaces, a dining loggia, beautiful gardens, and a swimming pool rounding out the property.
