Tamara's Versailles: F1 Heiress's £78m Palace Has 50-Seat Cinema, Gilded Ballroom and 15 Bathrooms...
Just a few months after Petra Ecclestone bought a mansion once named as the most expensive home in the States, her sister Tamara is set to move into the house ranked No2 - just down the road.
She is eyeing up the lavish Fleur de Lys estate in the Holmby Hills in Bel Air, Los Angeles. The five-acre estate was modelled on Louis XIV's Palace of Versailles - and certainly contains all the opulent luxuries a modern-day princess could demand.
The mansion has 12 bedrooms, a two-storey wood-panelled library stocked with first-edition books and garage parking for nine cars. Not to mention a gym and formal dining room.
