Plastic surgeon Raj Kanodia made a name for himself providing natural-looking fillers and scarless “closed rhinoplasty” nose jobs for some of the biggest names in Hollywood—but it seems he may not have a nose for real estate. The prominent doctor built a 34,000-square-foot home in Bel Air in hopes of flipping it for profit. More than a year after it was listed for $180 million, it still hasn’t sold.
Kanodia reportedly spent over $70 million to build the modern dream house and is paying millions each month just to maintain it. And while he’s willing to consider accepting offers of $120 million ($60 million less than the original asking price), he believes the glass palace is worth the high price tag.
It has nine bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar, to name a few details. The exterior of the house is a combination of Portuguese limestone and glass, and the entryway boasts 29-foot ceilings. From there, it only gets more dramatic.
The large open main space features multiple living rooms, dining rooms, and studies, all with floor-to-ceiling windows, many of which open to the outside. Elsewhere are a spa, theater, gym designed by celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, and not one, but three kitchens. Light wood and stone floors are components throughout.
In the master suite, you can lie in bed and have an unobstructed view of downtown Los Angeles. The wall of glass retracts to allow for seamless indoor-outdoor living, and an in-room fireplace can keep you warm on chillier nights. The bathroom also has an impressive view: While lounging in the tub, you get the same skyline scenery and can peek over the pool below.
Outside, Kanodia created a large infinity pool and flew in exotic plants and trees from India to be planted on the lush grounds. And, according to the listing, you get “views spanning the snowcapped mountains of the Angeles forest to the offshore oasis of Catalina.”
Since he wasn’t able to find a buyer as quickly as he had hoped, Kanodia also listed the property for rent at $1.5 million a month to help cover costs.
