After shelling out a stagerring 25-million-dollar manse on North Bay Road in Los Angeles a few months ago, Calvin Klein listed his sunshine-state manse with an asking price tag of $ 25M.
Acquired by the famed designer in 1999, this late-1920s Hacienda-style luxury residence spans no more than 5,800 square feet of air-conditioned living space comprising 5 bedrooms (one of which being an upper-level master suite with fireplace, a bathroom/dressing area and direct access to a private veranda) and 5 ensuite baths and 2 half baths. Three of the bedrooms are warmed and softened by reclaimed wood floor planks of varying width.
The property boasts a 1,000 square-foot area for outdoor living, dining and lounging and which also features a bamboo-walled infinity pool, a courtyard, a two-car garage and a private boat dock on 0.38 acres of bay frontage.
The abode comes fully upgraded. Although the interior and exterior are strictly monochromatic, they are texturally rich with plain walls, white slipcovered furnishings, rustic rough-hewn wood accents with European craftsmanship throughout and antiques and furnishings by celebrated designer Axel Vervoordt. There is a dual-level combined living-dining room with exposed beam ceiling, a massive center-island kitchen with jet black countertops fitted on custom bone-colored wood cabinets and state-of-the-art appliances.
On the surface, nothing is lost, nothing is gained for Mr Klein’s property portfolio but in truth it has increased through the size and ultra-luxury of his new acquision. Not surprising for the world-famous magnate.
