Hot Property: Pharrell tries to spin off a second LA home



Hot Property: Pharrell tries to spin off a second LA home

Even in real estate, Pharrell Williams‘Style stands out. The house of a Grammy-winning Hollywood artist – a charming glass-covered complex known as Skyline Residence – has been sold for $ 11.95 million.

Williams has a tendency to buy plantations that are architecturally attractive. Earlier this year, he placed his 17,000-square-foot mansion that looked like a supervillain nest in the $ 16.95 million market in Beverly Hills.

The Skyline Residence offers a similar dramatic look, stretching across 1.5 hectares in a ridgetop setting with views of the city and valley below. This house was designed and built in 2007 by Hagy Belzberg, the architect in charge of the Los Angeles Holocaust Museum in Pan Pacific Park.

Covered in concrete and glass, the low-slung residence offers a large open living area with clean lines, hardwood floors and white gallery walls. Highlights include a spacious porch, minimalist kitchen, and dining room moored by a garden wall. The master suite, one of five bedrooms, is equipped with a built-in fireplace and green marble bathroom.

The glass wall opens to the rear, where a thin expanse of grass is bordered by an infinite pool. This beautiful area also includes a two-story guesthouse with a bedroom and kitchen and a front garden with a film projector.

A singer, rapper, producer and fashion designer, Williams, known as Pharrell, formed the hip-hop production duo of Neptunes in the mid-1990s and started the band N.E.R.D. then that decade. The 47-year-old has won 13 Grammys and received two Oscar nominations, including one for his hit song “Happy.”

Kurt Rapport and Drew Meyers from Westside Estate Agency hold the listing.

End of run in Beverly Hills

Married actor Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis looking to shed their home in Beverly Hills for six years, registered this property for sale at a price of $ 13,995 million.

That’s $ 3.78 million more than the couple paid for the plantation a few months after getting engaged in 2014.

Built around two decades ago and has since been renewed, this plantation is half an hectare in the gated Valley community hidden near Franklin Canyon Park.

The traditional three-story style house is in the heart of the estate and has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms on 7,351 square feet. A landscape courtyard and a stone walkway approach the house, which attracts attention with stone accents and black shutters.

French doors, oak floors, and crown molding touch public spaces. The formal living room is expanded into the mahogany office, and the chef’s kitchen leads to a breakfast corner and family room with a fireplace. Other highlights include a fitness center, sauna and wine cellar.

A covered terrace extends from the back of the house, down to a grassy courtyard with a swimming pool, spa and grill.

Kutcher and Kunis both gained fame in the late 1990s as part of the cast of “That’s 70’s Show.” Kutcher has since appeared in the films “My Boss’s Daughter,” “The Butterfly Effect” and “Jobs.” Kunis has film credits that include “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Black Swan,” the latter of which earned him a Golden Globe nomination.

Justin Paul Huchel and Drew Fenton from Hilton & Hyland hold listings.

The west is wild, wild

Malibu’s house Robert Conrad, an actor known for his popular roles at the 1960s show “Hawaiian Eyes” and “The Wild, Wild West,” has been sold in Malibu for $ 5,195 million.

Conrad, who died in February at the age of 84, bought a property with a view of the sea in 2011 at a price of $ 1.35 million and re-imagined the 1970s dwellings to be full of contemporary light. The house faces a stretch of beach where actors learn to surf in the 1950s, according to listing agent Rochelle Maize from Nourmand & Associates.

“Robert really enjoyed the lifestyle of Malibu and used the five minute walk to the beach to surf,” Maize said.

Designed to capture the scenery, this two-storey house has high ceilings, glass walls and a round balcony that extends the outdoor living area. A floor plan of 3,765 square feet includes a two-story living room, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Outside, about three-quarters of an acre has a saltwater swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and fire pit. Beach volleyball court and green seating facing the side.

Conrad, best known for his own actions, became a star last night after “Hawaiian Eyes” made its debut in 1959 and solidified its status in the 60s as a two-fist star of “The Wild, Wild West.” Originally from Chicago, he also appeared on the show “Baa Baa Black Sheep” as well as the films “Young Dillinger” (1966) and “The Lady in Red” (1979).

He lost profits from his home court

Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has moved to the San Fernando Valley, selling its home in Woodland Hills for $ 3.25 million.

Clarkson, 27, bought a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom Cape Cod house in 2018 – about two months after it was traded by the Lakers to the Cleveland Cavaliers – for $ 3.199 million.

Built in 2018, this 5,800-square-foot house has high ceilings, a clean eucalyptus factory, and hardwood floors throughout. Double island kitchens, wine safes, and home theaters are just some of the details that need attention. The master suite, which has its own fireplace and walk-in closet, opens to a terrace overlooking the backyard.

The house is located on about half a hectare with a cabana, outdoor kitchen and saltwater swimming pool and spa.

Clarkson found himself on a trip for the second time in his career last year when the Cavaliers handed it over in December to Utah in a package for Dante Exum. The combo keeper averaged 15.1 points in 63 matches last year before the NBA season was dismissed due to fears over a pandemic.

Sold in the shop for Skyhill Studios

The Hollywood Hills is home to a late musician-songwriter Leon Russell once used as a recording studio was sold at $ 1,398 million.

The green-hued ranch-style house was Russell’s home and noted in the late 1960s and early 70s. The Moody Blues and singer-songwriter Marc Benno, as well as blues guitarists Albert and Freddie King, are among those who record with multi-instrumentalists at home, known as Skyhill Studios.

It was also where Russell recorded several of his studio albums including his first solo LP, “Leon Russell,” with people like Joe Cocker, Mick Jagger, Buddy Harman, Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr, among others.

Looking like something from a time capsule, this 2,892-square-foot house has a stone-walled fireplace in the living room, work space, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Lush landscaping surrounds a terrace in the backyard.

Russell, who died in 2016 at the age of 74, was a genre-bending musician who performed piano rock, blues, gospel and country music. As a songwriter, his songs include “A Song for You,” “Tight Rope” and “This Masquerade.” As a producer, he worked on albums for artists including Cocker and Bob Dylan.

He was appointed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

This property was last sold in 1972 for $ 60,000. Jeff Yarbrough and Wendy Cortese from Keller Williams Realty hold listings.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
