Listing of the week: L.A. opulence, as seen on TV
For sale: $28,800,000
The developers who built this mega-estate on spec started with a flat acre just a few minutes’ walk from the Sunset Strip. They tore down the existing home and hired one of Southern California’s premier modern architects, Hagy Belzburg.
The result is a sleek and sprawling compound that seems to float alongside its three-sided, 60-foot infinity pool. It’s comfortable with kids playing on one of its grassy lawns, but sleek and opulent paired with a sports car parked in its motor court, as it was styled for the listing photos. (The home includes a five-car garage, plus off-street parking for 10 more).
The home is owned by two investors, but no one has ever lived there. Now, it’s on the market for the first time, filled with furniture custom-designed by Erinn Valencich, a contestant on NBC’s new home renovation reality show “American Dream Builders.”
Valencich designed the home’s warm interior, using wood and stone to make it casual.
The home can be dressed up for a party or down for family life, said Blair Chang, who holds the listing for The Agency along with Billy Rose and Mauricio Umansky.
“It’s a wonderful architectural job,” he said. “It’s large and substantial, but you don’t feel like you’re in this huge house that you’re afraid to live in.”
