Enchanting fortress on the market in CA may be somebody’s ‘dream’


A strikingly unique estate has landed on the real estate market in sunny Los Angeles, and prepare to be amazed by its glittery interior.

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence — which is listed for $9.988 million — sits on the popular Los Feliz Boulevard and stands apart from other homes in the area thanks to a well-known designer.

“Behind its gleaming golden gate, this exotic residence has been transformed by the skilled artistry of legendary fashion designer Sue Wong,” the listing on Douglas Elliman says. “Painstakingly brought from Morocco, the fortress is a visual voyage to an authentic lifestyle seen in Marrakesh, Fez or Casablanca — but rarely in Los Angeles.”

Wong is known for miraculously blending modern style with vintage glamour from Hollywood’s pre-code era.

“Enter gardens with tile fountains that lead to the grand main entry door bedecked in brass and surrounding by imported tilework rising 20 feet above you,” the listing describes. “Step inside to a soaring Foyer where ceilings and archways reveal carved intricacy guiding you through this citadel.”

Captivating features in and around the 10,050-square-foot property include:

The home was featured on Friday Night Zillow, a Twitter segment that highlights unique houses for sale run by Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis.

“This Moroccan-themed *masterpiece* from fashion designer Sue Wong just hit the market for $9.998M,” Dennis tweeted.

Others agreed that it was a find.

The pool is gorgeous. The price is reasonable for what you get and where it is!” one person said. “It looks to be in great shape. No millions to restore it.”

Dream home,” another noted.

The listing is held by Ernie Carswell, Kendra Wilkinson and Spencer Daley.
