Newly Built ‘Gallery House’ in Beverly Hills is a State-of-the-Art Exhibit of Its Own Accord

Art makes us aware of the world we live in, inspires us, and challenges us to consider new possibilities, while delighting us at the same time. It’s not often that the same sense of wonder is triggered by a single family home, but we’ve found one that does just that.

153 North Willaman Drive, a newly completed contemporary home in Beverly Hills, CA — aptly named ‘Gallery House’ for its sleek, art gallery-inspired design — recently came to market with a price tag of $4,495,000. The 4,087-square-foot home sits on a 6,503-square-foot lot, and is being marketed by Lisa Gild of Douglas Elliman. 

The elegant and sophisticated home designed by LRG Architects blends modernism with organic materials found in nature, to extraordinary results. The striking, oak-framed box exterior almost looks like it’s floating above ground, in contrast with the exposed concrete foundation that supports it.

Inside, guests are greeted by an art-inspired foyer leading onto a two-story glass atrium that bathes the space in abundant natural light.

The main level features 11-foot-high ceilings and natural stone detailing, making it a perfect space for art lovers and offering plenty of space for art displays.

The home is equipped with all the modern smart home technologies that homebuyers look for nowadays, including Lutron lighting control, Cove lighting and speaker system, air conditioning, IAquaLink technology, state-of-the-art security system, as well as solar panels to generate energy.

The Gallery House features custom fleetwood doors and windows throughout, custom-made white oak cabinetry and floors, and other art-inspired details that seem to be a recurring theme throughout the house — no doubt appealing to the key demographic the designers had in mind when envisioning the space.

Kendall Jenner Gives Us a Tour of her Peaceful, Art-Filled Home

Not a day goes by without a member of the Jenner-Kardashian clan holding magazine covers; but this time around, it’s for the best possible reason, as Kendall Jenner gave course to a standing invitation from Architectural Digest to tour her home in Beverly Hills — and will be gracing the covers of the publication’s next issue.

Now, given that Jenner’s house is one of the most serene residences we’ve seen so far among celebrities calling Beverly Hills home, we just had to share the highlights of the tour with our readers. Trust us, you won’t want to skip this one.

Kendall Jenner lives in Charlie Sheen’s old house

The 6,625-square-foot Spanish-style home is located in Mulholland Estates, a gated community with its own security, popular among celebrities for this very reason (musicians like Christina Aguilera or DJ Khaled have also bought into the community in the past).

The supermodel bought the house back in 2017, and reportedly paid $8.55 million for the star-studded property, which was once owned by Two and a Half Men actor Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller. Before them, Jenner’s house had another high-profile resident, Detroit Piston’s owner Tom Gores.

Kendall Jenner then went on to make the place her own, and put together a design team consisting of mother-and-son duo Kathleen and Tommy Clements — which she often credits for the interiors during her A.D Open House tour — and the expert team at Waldo’s Design. And while her work is not done, as Kendall admits that creating a nice home for yourself is a life-long process, the end result is an inviting, peaceful home where the 24-year-old can retreat to, meditate, and entertain friends.

Her home has calm, earthy interiors — punctuated by colorful, pricey art pieces

 “My life involves a lot of chaos and travel and high energy, so I wanted a home that feels serene, a place where I can simply zone out and relax,” Jenner told the Arch Digest team. With that goal in mind, she fitted her home with warm, organic textures, earthy tones, and very comfortable furnishings.

Jenner has often spoken publicly about her battle with anxiety, so it comes as no surprise that her home has been envisioned as a calming refuge; all throughout the 6,625-square-foot home, you will find meditation corners, places to prepare tea, or bright, open spaces that lead to the serene backyard. In fact, the house itself is U-shaped, which means that every part of it connects to the green backyard area.

For her more creative moments, Jenner converted a movie theater into an art studio fitted with canvas drapes (you know, the type you can paint on). This too adds to the mindfulness aspect of the home, as Kendall sees working on her art projects as a form of therapy.

While Kendall Jenner’s house doesn’t abound in expensive luxury furnishings, the artwork is a whole different story. Starting with the signature James Turrell ovoid wall sculpture at the entrance (which actually spurred some debate as to whether she is hanging the artwork properly), the model’s art-filled space also features a neon Tracey Emin sculpture over the bedroom fireplace and a salon-style hang above the dining room table, anchored by a Lauren Greenfield photograph of Beverly Hills high school students ditching class. 

Zen elements and artwork aside, the young member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan made sure her home doesn’t lack any modern-day comforts and glam elements. She turned two bedrooms into a fitting room and nearby glam room, the latter of which she’s dubbed her “Hannah Montana room.” Just like her mom, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, Kendall has a perfectly appointed walk-in closet and a shiny, gold brass tub that anchors her master bath.

This Fab Beverly Hills Home is the Epitome of Modern Cali Living, and It Can Be Yours for $10M

If you’ve ever dreamed of sharing a zip code with your favorite music and movie stars, this is your chance to make that dream come true. There’s a fabulous home for sale in Beverly Hills that embodies all the glamour and luxury of Hollywood, and it comes with a $9,995,000 price tag (and a 90210 address).

The fabulous property, featured in the LA Times as their Home of the Week, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and comes with a long list of cool amenities.

The 5,300-square-foot home lies on a massive, 20,711-square-foot lot, and it was carefully built to make the most of the sweeping ocean and city views. The effort has definitely paid off, as the views are simply breathtaking. 

The 1961-built home sits on its very own promontory, which covers nearly half an acre, and is decked out with state-of-the-art amenities inside and out — some likely hand-picked by the media executive himself, particularly on the tech side of things.

The house has 42 custom Fleetwood doors and windows, and comes with a plethora of smart home technologies. These include property-wide audio, video, and lighting systems; a hospital-grade HEPA and UV air purification system; a three-car garage with two electric car rapid charges; drought-tolerant landscaping; and solar-powered electricity throughout. 

Besides the ultra-modern smart home features, this Beverly Hills abode also comes with a long list of classic luxurious amenities. There’s a gourmet eat-in kitchen with marble countertops, Thermador appliances, and a large island that flows into the living room. Here, you’ll find natural colors, beautiful high ceilings, and a cozy fireplace to snuggle up to on cold nights.

The kitchen, living room and dining room boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows that open to the gorgeous backyard. Here, you’ll find an outdoor dining area, a beautiful lounge area, and an infinity pool. It’s basically the perfect place to spend summer evenings, either relaxing with family or entertaining guests.

The master bedroom features new hardwood floors, a home office, spacious dual closets, as well as a home gym with glass walls overlooking the city and ocean (which sounds like the perfect motivation to finally start working out).

All of the four bedrooms inside this Beverly Hills home are en-suite, and feature marble baths with Waterworks faucets and fittings. There’s also a library with a bar, a den, and a family room. 

Everything has been carefully thought out both inside and outside this home. Each room is impeccable from an interior design standpoint, boasting a fresh, modern, yet timeless decor. The spaces are airy and flooded with natural light, and the views are magnificent from all angles. 

The property is listed with Juliette Hohnen of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

Former OPI Exec Lists Italian-Style Villa in Beverly Hills for $33 Million

Miriam Schaeffer, a former executive at nail polish giant OPI Products, is looking to sell her Italian-style villa in Beverly Hills, CA — and won’t settle for just any amount.

The nail polish mogul — who is also the former wife of George Schaeffer, founder of the popular nail polish brand — is asking a hefty $33 million for her opulent home set in one of the most sough-after streets in the area, Roxbury Drive, a historically popular address among celebrities.

Located on N. Roxbury Drive, the property has a rich history and has been considerably upgraded and expanded in recent years. In fact, Schaeffer invested heavily in the property, expanding its footprint by roughly 40% and significantly boosting the amenity roster.

Originally built in 1926 by the architectural firm Camduff and Camduff as one of the partners’ own homes, the architectural masterpiece was revamped by renowned architect Richard Manion in 2016. The current owner worked alongside the architect to add amenities like a media room and a wine cellar, and to expand the beautiful grounds.

The combination of Spanish, Italian, and Mediterranean revival architecture is probably why this property is also known as Casa California. It’s a perfect representation of relaxed California living, featuring a long list of fun amenities that includes a fitness studio, a media room, a spa, and a swimming pool. 

The property offers roughly 210 feet of frontage along N. Roxbury Drive, also known as ‘street of the stars’ (a highly popular destination for celebrities living in Beverly Hills), but it also offers privacy from prying eyes via a gated and hedged entrance.

The mansion has 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, and an impressive total of 13,765 square feet of living space. The rear grounds are home to the pool, the spa, a guest house, and a fitness studio, all surrounded by complete privacy and tranquility.

Inside, a two-story entry greets visitors, leading to a living room with a stunning fireplace and doors that open to the front grounds. There is also a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, complete with a breakfast room and a wood-paneled family room that opens to the pool.

Upstairs, there is a gorgeous master suite that incorporates a sitting room, custom-made closets, and a terrace with fabulous views. There’s no shortage of space for family or friends, as the upper levels also include no less than 5 guest suites.

Additional amenities include a wine cellar, an elevator, an entertainment room, and a bar, making this house perfect for any type of entertaining.

This luxurious N. Roxbury Drive property is marketed by The Agency, with Jacob Dadon handling the listing. The current owner is Miriam Schaeffer, the former wife of George Schaeffer, who founded the popular nail polish brand OPI. 

Schaeffer bought OPI (then Odontorium Products Inc.) in 1981 in Calabasas. At the time, the company was in the dental supply business, but Schaeffer and partner Suzi Weiss-Fischmann turned the brand into a global nail polish giant. The brand’s products were used in movies like Legally Blonde 2 and Alice in Wonderland, and they are known for their chip-resistant formula and bright colours. The company was acquired by Coty, Inc. in 2010, and Schaeffer stepped down as CEO in 2013. 

Miriam Schaeffer, George Schaeffer’s ex-wife, once worked as an executive and treasurer for the brand. She reportedly purchased the opulent house in 2012 for $14 million, according to Mansion Global, and invested in expanding its footprint by nearly 40%, alongside architect Richard Manion.
