$25 MILLION DOLLAR ART DECO STYLE ESTATE - SEE THIS HOUSE

Living room mansion art deco turquoise sofa black and white tile floor picture windows Kristoffer Winters Philip Vertoch

A newly built mega mansion named "The Reserve". The lush estate's architecture and feel hearkens back to the Art Deco style of the 1920's, 30's and 40's!  10,000 square feet of home built on 2 sprawling acres in the middle of Los Angeles in the tony neighborhood of Holmby Hills.

The home is listed for $24,950,000 by Hilton & Hyland.  A one story home with 6 bedrooms, 11 baths, a pool, home theater, 5 fireplaces, a cobblestone driveway, 14 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and top finishes.  The home was designed by Kristoffer Winters and realized by architect Philip Vertoch.  There is some connection with Bourne Legacy and Hurt Locker actor Jeremy Renner...he apparently flips homes with Winters and this is their latest multi million dollar real estate project.

If you are interested though...it looks like you might be too late...judging by my not so professional perusal of a few sites...it looks like a sale is pending as of mid June!

Something very glam and retro about this home although it is brand new. From the verdant gardens filled with iron crane statues, to the large iron windows that line the checkered covered patio, to the geometric tile floors, the marble bathrooms, the detailed carvings in the exterior architecture and much more...maybe the way it staged and furnished helps too...feels like a different era...the best of old Hollywood and the early to mid 20th century.  I like.

What do you think of this mega mansion with a throw back vibe?  Like or dislike?  Would you take it if offered to you?

I would take it in a minute...then I would make some retro throw back type of friends and dress my family in 1930's garb and hang out at this house for days and days!

Hope you had a great long holiday weekend!

Happy Monday!

P.S.  Had a very quiet holiday weekend.  Went to a barbecue with TE on Friday at AB and GB's house.  It was in honor of friend JTH and her new hubby LH.  Fun catching up with everyone...and made new friend SW!   Will share photos of what we did yesterday in a post later today.

P.P.S.  NEW COCOCOZY LUCITE COLLECTION - Getting ready for Atlanta market this week.  I'll be in Atlanta for two days because we have so many collections showing including a new partnership, bedding, rugs and our own luxury pillows.  In addition to many other things...we are taking some new COCOCOZY lucite trays to market.  Here is a sneak peek of one of them!  I took this photo at the office last week right before we shipped this off to Atlanta! So excited for this new collection of lucite trays!  Will show you more this week.

P.P.P.S.  This week am prepping for vacation!  So excited to get away with TE.  Have been hiking up hills and doing sit ups to get in shape.  Bathing suit time!  Yay! Oy! Yay! Oy! Yay! Oy!

  4. I certainly could never afford a place like this, or even one a tenth its size, but I can answer your last question--Would you take it if offered to you?--in one word: no. How about two words? Hell, no, not unless I could turn around and sell it to someone who actually believes that a token cut-corner panel set into the bathroom's tilework and some handsome cabinetry in the same room qualifies the house as "Art Deco".

    Not, of course, that everything is terrible. I like the elegant pools & fountains--well, minus the cranes, anyway--and I like the restrained gates, and the metal-framed windows, but that's all the architecture, while the actual decor is a flat-out mess, with none of the fizzy glamour of early, jazzy Deco, nor the sleek purity of the late stuff. Instead, it's an amateurish mashup of stuff that just doesn't go, and there's simply too much of it, except for the teensy chandelier dangling over that bloated beast of a bed.

    Anyway, for $25M, you could buy the real thing--a vintage David Adler beauty--which these days can go for relatively low prices. Well, 'low' compared to places like this.

  7. I was so appalled by that house that I zoomed clear over your pretty new trays. I predict big orders. Have a great time in Atlanta!

  9. I am impressed, I envy the life of certain people, no need to say. If I was offered, of course I would never say no, (except for the tin ceilings and some of the decor can be changed of course) and build a studio somewhere in the house, and spend weeks and weeks and weeks there instead of the office. If it is offered, would they also offer the life time maintenance of such a mension?

  10. We were pleased to have had a part in this home's refurbishment. Kristoffer was a delight to work with. He used our cement tile on all the patios in your photos above and the Cubes pattern in the kitchen and family room areas. On the gray and white check outdoor patio tile he applied an aging glaze so the tile did not look so new and was more harmonious with the age of the house. We think his attention to detail is wonderful.

  14. It's great to see the wood vanity in the bathroom, warming up the white and black. The art deco design on the wall is super cool, too!
