Fleur de Lys, the Westside mansion that recently sold for a Southern California record-breaking price of $102 million, is now available for lease for $400,000 a month to long-term tenants. The timing is good for the new, and as yet unidentified, owner. Another mega estate, historic Beverly House in Beverly Hills, reentered the for-sale market at $135 million and also is available to let at $600,000 a month -- making Fleur de Lys look like a relative bargain. Fleur de Lys claims roughly 50,000 square feet of living space on five acres.
