Inspired by ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Harry Potter,’ this Beverly Hills mansion is stranger than fiction

It’s a fantasy-lover’s dream home

Robert and Krystal Rivani live in Beverly Hills, California — where the west coast couple are making headlines for their 15,200 square foot mansion of wonder. The Beverly Hills house sports seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a pool, but the home is getting attention for its style.

The couple spoke with The Wall Street Journal, which reported that the mansion comes equipped with a paradise of fantastical pop culture novelties. The home features a replica of the Iron Throne from HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones,” the Apothecary Bar from “Harry Potter,” an “Alice in Wonderland” themed backyard and a jungle room.

“Being ‘extra’ is everything to us,” Krystal Rivani told The Wall Street Journal. “It makes life fun and interesting and memorable.”

It’s a sentiment that her husband certainly shares.

“I always joke that if you enjoy living in a glass box, you’re boring,” Robert Rivani said. “It was so unique to see this style of a house in L.A. It looks more like a castle in Scotland or London.”

The home is now available for rent at a cool $150,000 per month.

“With its perfectly manicured park like grounds, set on over 1.7 acres with over 15,000 sqft of living space, you enter through the grand room with windows that not only flood the home with bright, natural light, but perfectly frame the jet-liner views that await you on one of the largest lots in the community,” the mansion’s Zillow listing said.

“Showcasing a total of 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, the home also includes a custom bar room, family room, expansive chef’s kitchen with island, a stunning pool/spa, sport court, and 6-car subterranean garage.”

The mansion comes fully furnished, though it is unclear if Robert and Krystal Rivani’s sword and sorcery-style portrait will remain affixed above the Iron Thrown replica.
