An ultra-contemporary trophy home in the exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel Air is seeking a deep-pocketed buyer to match its $38.5 million price tag.
Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac with its own private security and indoor and outdoor pools, the angular estate’s Wednesday listing marked its return to the market after a 10-month hiatus. It’s been on and off the market since the tail end of 2019, when it debuted for $43 million.
Dubbed a “trophy for the estate connoisseur,” the home is being sold by Alessandro Cajrati Crivelli, a developer of Milan’s Zona Tortona fashion district and the founder of the members-only club Spring Place, which has locations in Beverly Hills, California, and New York.
Sitting on more than an acre overlooking the tony Bel Air Country Club, the concrete, glass and metal home was custom built in 2015 for Mr. Crivelli, who acquired the underlying land in 2012 for $6.9 million, listing records show.
“It’s different to those glass boxes you see,” listing agent Aaron Kirman, of the Aaron Kirman Group at Compass, told Mansion Global. “You have the landscape of L.A., you have city views, golf course views, but then when you walk in it has this European sensibility.”
“It’s not your run-of-the-mill spec house, that’s what makes it fun and interesting,” he said.
From the street, a gated entrance opens to reveal a long, tree-lined private driveway that opens up to a spacious motor court, according to the listing.
The entrance to the more than 14,000-square-foot mansion is a sky-lit main gallery that opens to the rest of the house. It boasts soaring ceilings, an open-plan living and dining space divided by a double-sided fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling electric glass doors allowing for an easy adoption of that quintessential indoor-outdoor living that Southern California is so well known for.
Loaded with state-of-the-art smart home technology, the high-end spread also has a chef’s kitchen, an office, formal staff quarters and a prep kitchen, an art studio, and an indoor lap pool and wellness center, as well as an outdoor infinity pool and spa.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite—one of seven bedrooms—has sprawling views, a luxurious bathroom and dual walk-in closets, according to the listing.
“All the houses at this price point have all the bells and whistles,” Mr Kirman said, but it’s the “architecture and design intent” that make this place truly unique.
“It really does feel very special,” he added. “It’s elegant and timeless and well thought out.”
