Stephen Ives, president of Oklahoma City-based Cheyenne Petroleum Company, has filed plans for a 21,000-square-foot mansion at Somma Way in Bel Air, The Real Deal has learned.
According to documents published with the city, Ives is seeking approvals to demolish the 9,750-square-foot home on the property, formerly owned by the late advertising executive Jack Roth. Ives paid $22.5 million to acquire the existing home last January, property records show.
In its place, he wants to build a two-story residence with garage, swimming pool and spa, landscaping and guard house.
At 20,000 square feet, the proposed mansion would rank among the largest estates in the exclusive area. It would also rise on the same block as an unfinished 40,000-square-foot spec home, on the market for sale for $100 million.
