Perched on a promontory overlooking Los Angeles is a true Beverly Hills palace.

The crown jewel of the exclusive Trousdale Estates neighbourhood, the property once belonged to comedian Danny Thomas, who starred in “The Danny Thomas Show” (aka “Make Room For Daddy”) and founded St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Thomas built the home in 1970 and later sold it for $US15 million after his wife died in 2000. Now it’s back on the market for a reported $US135 million.

The Wall Street Journal notes that listing agent Aaron Kirman sold a neighbouring property to Swedish billionaire Markus Persson (who founded the game company Mojang and invented Minecraft)

for a Beverly Hills record-breaking $US70 million last year.

Kirman says this property is priced higher because of its panoramic views and acreage. “Ultimately, what you’re paying for is the site, the grounds, and the view, which is truly the best view in the city,” he says.
