Looking for a long-term Los Angeles lease and have $400,000 a month to spare?

You're in luck. The Fleur de Lys, the Westside mansion that recently sold for a Southern California record-breaking price of $102 million, is on the market for long-term lease at $400,000 a month, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

The report said the timing could be good for the mansion's owner, who remains unidentified, as another Beverly Hills estate has gone up for sale at $135 million, and can be leased for $600,000 a month—making the 35,000-square-foot Fleur de Lys, seem like a relative bargain.

In case you're interested, the Fleur de Lys is styled after a French chateaux, and boasts 12 bedrooms, 15 baths, a ballroom big enough to accommodate 200 guests, a 50-seat theater, a nine-car garage, staff quarters and a 3/4-quarter of a mile jogging track and other amenities.

The home had been on the market for seven years at an unwavering list price of $125 million, before the previous owner, socialite Suzanne Saperstein, accepted a cash offer of $102 million earlier this year.
