We love to see how Hollywood’s high-end live at home and when they hit the market can grab a glimpse inside homes of the stars. Even the sneaker closet of Maroon 5 lead singer and “Voice” judge Adam Levine shows it’s not just the Kardashians who have incredible walk-in dressing rooms filled with shoes.
Just sold for US$45 million, according to LA times, Levine and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo reportedly purchased the five bedroom, 12 bathroom home in Beverly Hills just over a year ago and have fully – and beautifully - renovated the entire property in what can only be described as a heavenly Hollywood house flip.
Built in 1933 in the style of old Hollywood, the home is nestled behind gates and has been fully renovated in a breathtaking mix of contemporary and classic style.
Timber-lined ceilings and crisply painted balustrading sit comfortably with sleek warehouse-style floor-to-ceiling steel windows facing out onto stunning landscaped grounds.
In the living areas original features of wainscoting and coffered ceilings remain to hover above elegant low-lying linen sofas and designer armchairs, viewed from an open plan kitchen.
A second moody grey chef’s kitchen is all business, lined with stainless style appliances including Wolf oven and cooktop and a SubZero fridge.
Upstairs bedrooms take full advantage of the soaring original ceilings – now painted in soft neutrals and gentle dusty blues and greens.
It's the generous walk-in wardrobe where dreams are really made - with an adjacent closet filled with shelving from floor to ceiling, custom built to hold and display an incredible collection of street shoes and sneakers.
With all the trapping of a celebrity lifestyle, there are still plenty of ideas to steal here –outdoors the oversized fire pit sits atop crazy pave in an understated arrangement of outdoor armchairs surrounding a raised stone fireplace.
The home also has a cinema room, gym, guest house and a tennis court built by none other than Pete Sampras who once lived there so, we’d happily be marooned there…
