Save your Hanukkah gelt for the return of the Alfred F. Rosenheim mansion to the MLS after the first of the year. The property -- probably better known as the place where the hit FX show "American Horror Story" is filmed -- was last listed at $10 million in January. It's been off the market since August to allow for filming of the show and you can expect that price tag to become old news once we bid farewell to 2011, according to the property website.
The home, protected under the Mills Act as a historic landmark, has Tiffany stained-glass windows and light fixtures, and museum-quality Tiffany glass doors. It still has six original fireplaces with Batchelder tiles and lots of other original details.
The three-story main house has a grand ballroom that was once a chapel and is currently being used as a recording studio. An only-in-LA thing!
Architect Rosenheim designed the 15,000-square-foot home in 1902 as his personal residence. Also among his credits: the famous Doheny Mansion.
