Suzanne Saperstein’s Mansion Back on the Market for $125 Million

The Swedish born former model walked away with $1 billion after divorcing her husband of 21 years.

Suzanne Saperstein, former Houston socialite and ex-wife of Texas billionaire David Saperstein, has moved into a 20, 000 square-foot rental mansion inside the guarded gates of Beverly Park.

Her new home sits on more than an acres, has 11 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms. It was custom built by mathematician Norm Zada.

While the terms of her lase were not disclosed, last year the property was listed unfurnished at $84, 000 a month.

The Swedish born former model walked away with $1 billion after divorcing her husband of 21 years. David left his wife for their 32 year old Swedish nanny.

Let’s hope she was worth it.

Just this past March, she netted $102 million in cash for her Bel Air mega mansion, Fleur de Lys, after it had been on the market for seven years. She asked for $125 million. That’s now once again the asking price, as the new owners are relisting the estate.

Fleur de Lys is a 50, 000 square foot mansion custom built by the Sapersteins in 2002, before their divorce. It has 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a 50-seat, satin-lined private cinema, a two story wood paneled library stocked with first-edition books and garage with parking for nine cars. Its gilded ballroom features mirror-clad arches based on those in the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, as well as impressive chandeliers and a ceiling fresco

There is also a gym, Italian marble walls, French limestone floors and gold embossed leather wall coverings, very Versailles.

There’s a spa pool with its own kitchen, an ornamental garden, 1, 600 yard running track, a championship tennis court and private quarters for as many as ten live in domestic staff.

At the entrance, a 200 yard driveway leads into a massive, open courtyard.

A self made man, David Saperstein was born in Baltimore to Jewish parents and founded Metro Networks in Houston Texas in 1978. A college dropout, he got his start in business selling used cars. He sold Metro Networks to the Westwood One Radio Broadcasting company for $1.25 billion in 1999.
