It looks like fashion designer Calvin Klein is apt to spend a little more time in LA. He just bought a spectacular, 9,300-square-foot home in the Hollywood Hills area for $25 million, developed by Dean McKillen, son of high-profile property investor Paddy McKillen.
The five-bedroom mansion fits squarely in the contemporary architectural style and features sliding glass walls, 13-foot-high ceilings, an infinity pool, and a bridged entryway over a waterfall and reflecting pool.
The contemporary home has automated retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls, which open to a grassy lawn and an infinity pool with views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. The entryway features a bridge over a waterfall and reflecting pool.
You must traverse a bridge over a waterfall and reflecting pool to enter the home. The bridge is intended to ‘slow the participant down and create a feeling of separation from the street behind’.
Most rooms are completely open to allow sunlight to flow throughout the home.
Inside, glass walls provide a startling sense of depth. The ceilings throughout the home measure 13 feet high. Abstract light fixtures hang from the ceiling at the end of the entryway.
The basement isn’t just some place for a couch and a Foosball table, it’s the main entertainment center.
…..there’s even space for a full bar.
Many of the glass walls are fully retractable.
There’s a peaceful sitting area underneath the bridge next to the reflecting area.
The L.A. views are absolutely stunning.
The incredibly spacious master suite has the best view of all. In total, the home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
The private covered terrace, with a fireplace, attached to the master suite make use of the moving glass walls.
A 65-foot infinity pool sits out back.
Other amenities include an eight-car garage and a 12-seat home theater, and a temperature-controlled wine room off the dining room.
Mr. Klein put his longtime Miami Beach home on the market in May for $16 million. He also has homes in Manhattan and in Southampton, N.Y.
