American television personality Nicole Richie, adopted daughter of Lionel Richie and Karen Moss, rose to fame in the early 2000s with the reality series “The Simple Life.” Throughout her teenage years, Richie became synonymous with thousand-dollar outfits, and a highly publicized and glamorized lifestyle alongside her childhood friend and socialite Paris Hilton. In 2010, Richie married Joel Madden of Good Charlotte and is the mother of two children, Harlow and Sparrow Madden. Now, Richie primarily concentrates on her role as creative director at lifestyle brand House of Harlow 1960.
On May 26, the celebrity couple sold their Beverly Hills abode to renowned musical artist Adele. Reportedly, Adele purchased several Bel Air properties with the intent to create a private compound. Richie and Madden’s 5,515 square foot former home was settled at a price of $9.95 million. However, the news that was not reported at the time was on May 13 when Richie had already closed another deal on an even larger Beverly Hills mansion for a $10.15 million.
Built in 1987, Richie and Madden’s newfound 6,100-square-foot space has been recently redesigned by married duo and SIMO Design co-founders Sam Gnatovich and Alexi Rennalls. The five bedroom, six bath residence was inspired by historical Parisian architecture and the Chanel flagship store in Paris. Stepping inside, the home opens to an elegant curving stairway to contrast its box like exterior structure. Distinctive design features include immense pocket doors and clean lines combined with more traditional crown molding. Throughout the home, marble serves as a key element from the kitchen island to the bath to various fireplaces around the property. Stepping outside, the 0.36-acre exterior presents a pool, hot tub, lush landscape, and mature olive trees shading the comfortable lounge area.
Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland served as the listing broker while Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland served as the buyer’s agent in this deal.
