Fleur De Lys Photographs of the Day (Part 5)

Today we feature two more of the public rooms of Fleur De Lys, the migraine inducing Los Angeles mansion that is owned by billionaire dee-vorcée Suzanne Saperstein. Located in the swanky Holmby Hills and measuring in at a staggering 35,000+ square feet of interior space, the Versailles inspired monstrosity is being offered for sale at the mend bending asking price of $125,000,000.

Although big ass screening rooms are de rigeur in the lavish and more expensive homes throughout Los Angles, we would bet our long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly that few could so easily double as a funeral parlor the way the Saperstein screening room could. Even with the not so subtle funereal theme, Miz Suzanne Saperstein and her extreme team of decorators have continued the rose color theme which we have previously seen obsessively worked in the Entrance Hall, the Rosegold Music Salon and the Formal Dining Room. Please also note the scary little statuettes. Your Mama is deeply concerned that in a darkened theater a guest could trip and impale themselves on one of these pointed and dangerous figurines on their way to or from a mid-movie terlit dash.

The lower photo shows the massive ballroom, a feature no ridiculously opulent home would dare be without. In this mammoth space one can gather several hundred friends and colleagues for charity balls, poetry readings, and self-congratulation amid 24 carat gold gilded grandiosity and a ceiling mural worthy of one of the better casinos in Las Vegas.

Anonymous 7:02 beat me to it. Definitely looks more like a place to view a body than screening a movie. Yikes.

I agree the screening room is creepy!

Mama - I'm checking in daily to see these photos, but I have to say... after today, I'm feeling more sick about this place than excited! It's really too much, and just a disgusting waste of millions.

I'm suprised the Sapersteins overlooked an opportunity to blind and bedazzle guests in the theatre. Where are the floor to ceiling room size gold leaf Oscar statuettes flanking each side of the viewing screen? And just when I was starting to think they had the whole transplanted Texan/beverly hillbilly thing nailed too.. dag nabbit.

What is the seating like? Looks like sofas with top corner of row of pillows exposed above drink ledge(?) And what are those statues for? disgusting.

I've now finally reached a point that I feel sorry for the woman.

1. She has no taste. Money, but no taste.
2. Could you possibly imagine living in this place ALONE? Being in rooms such as these would just exacerbate the lonely feeling.

If what I read is true, it sounds like the ladies that lunch in BH never embraced her. So, I doubt the house has been put to much use since the hubby left.

The seating consists of 4 or 5 rows of built in "sofas/benches" with pillow backs. They also have ottomans. At the very back, are two large leather chairs where the Mr and Mrs would sit, away from the rif-raff.

Those figurines are horrible and there are about a dozen of them. They look like something that might have come from the Martin Lawrence Gallery.

There is a "candy-room", with shelves filled with jars of every kind of candy to enjoy during the movie. This room was kept locked at all times, so that the children could not help themselves :(

I thought that before I'd even read a word. OMG y'all, they've got their own funeral room!

Ew.

The whole hot mess.

Please remove your hats, and keep it down to whispers.

Cryers are asked to step into the ballroom for comfort and refreshments.

Thankyou.

My first impression was the lining of a casket. This nut has children? Did they live on the premises?

This is a link to the people who painted the ceilings in the house. (and some of the paintings) BTW, all of the paintings in the house are nudes. Not a stich of clothing to be found.

The house is drawing tourists and tour vans....further disturbing the neighborhood. Hope it sells in this century!

By now, this place is just making me laugh. Even the grandest palaces should have a livability factor. I would like to see the living-in rooms upstairs or even the maids' quarters. Please.

I was really liking this house until these last two pics. Now it just looks tacky and soul-less. Almost grim.

Thank you anon @ 4:56P. You've expressed what I've been trying to verbalize. This house is truly soulless. It is not a home.

The more I see of this home the more I think it is worth $125 million. Amazing pics at lushscenery.com. Maybe the Catholic church could buy it?
