Elton John’s Beverly Hills ‘soft contemporary’ digs

564

Sir Elton John, 65, and his life partner, David Furnish, 50, sold their high-rise Sierra Towers condos in West Hollywood in early September, 2012 only to move into a much safer, almost  as twice as expensive one-level walled, gated  property. The couple splashed out on a kid-friendly home in the fancy Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills as they had grown paranoid that baby Zachary might crawl out of a window and fall to death like Eric Clapton’s son in 1991.

Listed for $7.695 million, the couple’s luxury house, built in 1966, has a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom main house, an all-white kitchen, a staff bedroom with its own bathroom and a plunge pool cabana which has its own lounge, gym and bath, in short, a safe and relaxing place for the expanding family.

This “soft contemporary” dig boasts a touch of Ralph Lauren feel rendered by white-oak flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city.
