Jimmy Kimmel’s Old Hollywood Home
Funnyman Jimmy Kimmel has put his elegant Hollywood Hills abode on the market—which he’s owned since 2002—for $2.299 million.
The 1947 Hollywood Regency-style home features a wrought iron stair railing, hardwood floors, and a floor-to-ceiling leaded glass bay window overlooking jaw-dropping views in the living room. With 3,605 square feet of interior space, the residence is comprised of five bedrooms, five baths, and a recording studio complete with a sound booth. The kitchen-dining-room combination has a Wolf cooktop, double Bosch ovens, a Subzero fridge/freezer, a diner-style dessert refrigerator, a separate ice maker, a soda dispenser, and a prep sink. The space’s large dining table—equipped with a booth—can seat 12, but can be magically lowered into a coffee table, transforming the area into a comfy media room with a large screen on the opposite wall with three screens above. There’s also a beautiful glassed-in bar that opens to the outside kitchen, pool, and hot tub terrace, not to mention a pizza oven, BBQ station, smoker, and beer keg dispenser… plus not one, not two, but a whopping dozen televisions. Talk about the epitome of an entertainer’s dream home.
Porsche Design Tower Almost Sold Out
The Porsche Design Tower—a 132-unit black glass structure in Sunny Isles—is rapidly filling up. According to developer Gil Dezer, over 20 billionaires have purchased homes at the Design Tower, with the remaining dozen luxury residences still up for grabs ranging in price from $6 million to $32.5 million for the penthouse.
Scheduled to be completed in 2016, the jaw-dropping residential boasts a number of enviable amenities, including a 24-hour concierge, a private restaurant with outdoor seating and lounge bar, a state-of-the-art spa, a fitness hub, a hair salon, and a ballroom equipped with a catering kitchen and a bar—not to mention a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront space ideal for showcasing collectible autos. Most notably, however, are the building’s car elevators (each condo has its very own lift), which soar 600 feet per minute to exclusive private garages, allowing residents to remain in their cars until they are inside their apartments.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Florida College and Home Designs
Only two of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright‘s widely admired designs—constructed during the tail-end of his storied career—can be found in Florida.
The first—a school campus commissioned by then-president of Florida Southern College, Ludd M. Spivey—possesses one of the finest collections of Wright architecture in the nation. The second—a curved designed completed in 1954 for a couple looking for a home in which to raise their four children on five acres by Lake Jackson—became known as “Spring House,” and spurred the creation of the Spring House Institute, an organization dedicated to preserving the historic property.
Historic Colorado Taylor Estate
Designed by Denver architect Burnham F. Hoyt, this 1932 manor home commissioned by Vernon F. Taylor and his jane-of-all-trades wife, Ann Bonfoey Taylor—sits on 122 private acres 20 minutes outside of Denver, overlooking Mount Evans and the Front Range.
The 26-room residence has a spacious drawing room, his-and-her master suites, nine additional bedrooms, nine baths, a formal banquet-sized dining area, a chef’s kitchen, a library, numerous sitting rooms and offices, a flower-cutting room; and 12 fireplaces, not to mention living quarters for a full-time staff. In addition, a lake cottage on the estate sits on the edge of Ward Lake, and has a beach, dock, and boating privileges. The property also has a pool, a tennis court, several outdoor patios and gardens, a dressage ring and stables, and three staff cottages.
Hollywood Hills Industrial Home
Touting a “New York industrial loft” vibe, this 3,000-square-foot home in the City of Angels is truly one-of-a-kind, as it is the only property in the world touting a missile lodged nose.
Priced at $2.995 million, the residence boasts three bedrooms, three baths, and is accented by a beautiful glass firewall, along with a dramatic exterior. Among the home’s notable features are state-of-the-art appliances, Caesarstone countertops, a home automation system, an oversized garage, and a grassy yard with space and plans for a pool and spa. To boot, the house’s art and furniture can be negotiated separately.
