Another over-the-top LA mansion is for sale.

The listing agent, who previously listed Michael Jackson’s house, said that he has never seen anything like it. Hmmmmm……

Fairly standard Tudor wannabe McMansion at first glance, but the features of this home are the things that make you go WOW.

Like that monster fireplace:

The home is located in California’s Hollywood Hills on 3 acres of flat land, which is rather rare in the uber-crowded Sunset Strip area.

But of course, that rarity is reflected in the $24.5 million price tag.

Marmont Manor was owned by a wealthy CEO who passed away earlier this year. His wife decided to downsize and listed the home recently.

The main Tudor style house dates back to 1937.

The home has a whopping 14 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms!

Square footage you ask? 20,000!!

Have a look at the beautiful wine cellar:

And – is this a garage?

I can’t even tell.

The Marmont Manor compound actually has seven buildings in total including a caretaker’s cottage, carriage house, two-story aviary and a pool pagoda with a restaurant-style kitchen and sushi bar. The property also has its very own on-site fire station that is officially recognized by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The humble caretaker’s cottage:

Isn’t that scrumptious?

The entire property is extensively landscaped, complete with a fully stocked fish pond.

The property also comes with custom sculptures that seem to interact with the landscaping….

Though not pictured, there are also 3 dog houses that mirror the Tudor architectural style of the main house.

You know it’s a pricey pad when there is an aerial shot in the listing photos!
