A new mansion has just hit the market in Beverly Hills.

At $US80 million, it’s one of the most expensive houses on the market in the US. With 28,000 square feet of space, it’s also one of the largest.

The property is being sold by retail CEO Albert Elkouby, a property developer who also owns an apparel company called JH Design. The house was previously listed two years ago for $A91 million, but it failed to sell in its half-finished state.

Described as a “French Chateau” in the listing, Elkouby’s home has every luxurious amenity and excess imaginable.

Sam Real of Nest Seekers International has the listing.

The 1.5-acre property was landscaped to look like it belonged in the French countryside.

The entrance is grandiose and unflinching.

Inside, two marble staircases lead to the second floor of the two-story foyer.

There's plenty of space to lounge in the sitting room.

That's not a mirror -- the room really is that large.

There really is no shortage of places to sit.

The home totals 28,000 square feet of space.

The kitchen is also suitably large.

Marble countertops abound.

A dining room lays just off the kitchen.

Upstairs is where things get interesting. There's a large sitting room off the master bedroom ...

... and a huge dressing room.

There's no lack of closet space here.

The shower doubles as a sauna.

There are 10 other bedrooms, including a three-bedroom guest house.

The other bathrooms are also spacious.

A wood-paneled study is both dramatic and inviting.

Finishing off the amenities, there's a cinema ...

... a real sauna room ...

... and an indoor pool.

There's also a 3,000-square-foot ballroom that rivals professional event spaces.
