Add another home to the Kardashian-Jenner compound.
A trust that holds real estate for the love-’em-or-hate-’em reality television family bought a Calabasas home for Kylie Jenner last year. Now the same trust has purchased a house in Calabasas for Rob Kardashian for $2.285 million.
Built in 2005, the East Coast-inspired Traditional is an unusual choice for a bachelor, with its classic brick details, white trim and a front porch framed by a set of detailed pedestals.
Within the 4,256 square feet of interiors are family and living rooms, a center-island kitchen, a library/office, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. A double-height dining room has a butler’s pantry and French doors that open to an intimate courtyard, perfect to keep out the prying eyes of the paparazzi. A separate sitting room, dual vanities and soaking tub highlight the master suite.
Never miss a local story.
The outdoor space is a perfect party pad: a built-in barbecue/bar, a fire pit and a swimming pool complete with a raised spa and waterfall feature. A brick porte-cochere and garage sit off to the side of the home.
The property sold a decade ago for $1.545 million, records show.
Kardashian, 28, is a television personality and clothing entrepreneur known on the E! series Keeping Up With the Kardashians and was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. He launched the sock clothing line Arthur George in 2012.
Rob’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe have their own homes in Calabasas; Kim and matriarch Kris Jenner live nearby in Hidden Hills.
JASON SEGEL FINDS HIS SPOT
Los Feliz, long a melting pot for artistic types and more recently a haven for flannel-wearing hipsters, has drawn another notable name to the Griffith Park-adjacent neighborhood: actor Jason Segel. The How I Met Your Mother star was the buyer of street artist Shepard Fairey’s Mediterranean-style home that sold last month for $2.25 million.
The 1920s residence originally hit the market in January for $1.835 million and spurred a bidding war that saw Segel emerge the victor in late February. Fairey bought the home more than a decade ago for $1.356 million.
It’s easy to see why the 2,523-square-foot house, designed by architect H.B. Benson, generated so much interest. Original details include wrought-iron work that wraps the balconies and stairways. Broad archways, decorative tile risers and hand-plastered walls continue the classic look throughout.
A great room topped with vaulted and beamed ceilings has a fireplace and a row of arched windows. A hand-painted mural adorns a banquette in the eat-in kitchen. A dining room, an office, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms make up the rest of the interiors.
A separate creative space used by Fairey, known for creating the Barack Obama “Hope” poster, sits off a central patio. Dining patios, terraces, formal landscaping and a two-car garage used most recently as a painting studio complete the grounds.
Segel, 36, is known for his role as Marshall Eriksen on the long-running CBS sitcom. His film credits include Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), I Love You, Man (2009) and The Muppets (2011).
ACTRESS SEEKS A PRETTY PARTING
Ashley Benson of Pretty Little Liars fame has put her remodeled home in Hollywood Hills West on the market for $2.995 million.
Purchased by the actress three years ago, the gated French Normandy-style house offers classic 1930s features and subdued-tone interiors designed to evoke a more modern style.
Dark wood floors, pendant lights and crisp white molding are among the more traditional details. Patterned wall treatments and elaborate chandeliers draw the eye while adding a pop of light and color.
The 3,085 square feet of space includes a wood-paneled library, an updated kitchen with a marble-topped island and an office/lounge. The dining room has coffered ceilings and a wall fireplace with a tiled hearth. The second-floor master suite has French doors that open to a deck. There are three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in all.
String lighting crisscrosses over a flagstone patio, providing light for the swimming pool and spa. A cabana sits behind the pool.
The 26-year-old actress-model has appeared on such shows as Days of Our Lives, Supernatural and Eastwick. She is set to star opposite Mary-Louise Parker and Josh Peck in the upcoming film Chronically Metropolitan.
WHO WANTS TO BE BICOASTAL?
Television personalities and New York natives Regis and Joy Philbin have bought a condominium in Beverly Hills for the asking price of $2.5 million.
Situated within a new development by Etco Homes, the front-facing unit features direct elevator access, Fleetwood windows and pocket doors, and a contemporary kitchen with an island/bar and Miele appliances.
A foyer and formal entry, living and dining rooms, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms lie within roughly 2,700 square feet of interiors. Two-tone color schemes, hardwood and ceramic tile floors and recessed lighting lend a contemporary look to the floor plan.
A wide veranda sits off the master bedroom and common areas. Three parking spots and subterranean storage are included with the unit.
Regis Philbin, 84, is known for hosting the daytime talk show Live With Regis and Kathie Lee and later Live With Regis and Kelly for more than two decades. His other credits include the game shows Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Million Dollar Password.
Joy Philbin, 75, was an occasional co-host on her husband’s show Live.
HE HAS DESIGNS TO SELL
Beverly Hills entrepreneur and designer Marc Ware, founder of the sportswear company Hot Cotton, has put his modern estate in Palm Springs on the market for $8.95 million.
Designed by Don Boss, a former associate of modernist architect A. Quincy Jones, the dramatic residence is distinguished by an overarching elemental aesthetic: Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass bring the native landscapes, palms and gardens by landscape architect Steve Martino inside. Seven negative-edge swimming pools surround the home, creating the illusion of floating on water.
A formal entry, living, dining rooms and family rooms, chef’s and catering kitchens and a den are within the 8,060 square feet of open-plan space. The “spine,” a long hallway adorned with floating fiberglass light fixtures, invites light while dividing the interiors.
The master suite has a fireplace, dual vanities and a steam shower. Two guest suites, each with private patios and mountain views, reside in a separate wing, for a total of five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Outdoors, the 1.5-acre grounds take on a resort-like setting with a mix of fire elements and sculptural light fixtures that surround the swimming pools, a shade structure and a 9-foot fireplace. Elsewhere, a tennis court sits within a lighted amphitheater.
