This unique estate is located at 10807 Bellagio Road in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles, CA. It was designed by Hugh Newell Jacobsen and commissioned by the former owners of Architectural Digest. It boasts 13,089 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It is listed at $23,950,000.

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

Expansive use of glass walls and doors brings exterior elements into close proximity with the interior spaces. This owner-built home was conceived by an architecturally knowledgeable professional couple to balance the need for privacy, entertaining and civic engagement and to accommodate their extensive art collection. The building process took five years to realize a structure that met the architect’s exacting standards. Structure accommodates… technology changes. Interior includes astounding common rooms, master with separate bathrooms, library, media room, gym, pool, 1 or 2 additional bedroom suites, staff apartment plus too much more to mention.

    Outdoor seating made out of granite…unless it’s intended to be ‘artwork’ you might need to throw out a couple of cushions as well!

    I love modern architecture and I’m all about experimentation whether it be a painting, scuplture, or archiecture, but when the experiment exceeds common sense to the point of being stupid then that’s where I need to draw the line.

    I’m sure the inside of the house is amazing and I’m sure parts of the exterior are just as amazing but it’s not captured in the pictures that are posted above.

    This home has always intrigued me ever since I saw it in birds-eye view. Looking at the few pictures provided, however, it looks like an honest-to-goodness mausoleum or temple. I cannot see a single sliver of warmth in its design. It looks like the house Lydia Deetz (Beetlejuice) would live in if they moved to Bel-Air. Overall, the home does nothing for me. In my eyes, there is nothing to fawn over. It just looks like a bunch of cubes topped with a pyramid and connected with skylight-topped breezeways. It’s a beautiful setting though.

      That was my personal opinion that they took inspiration from the pyramids and expanded them out into little buildings to make this house, but a mausoleum will also work.

      This has to be one of the most human unfriendly homes that I have ever seen.
      Truly the definition of cold.

      I too have seen this home numerous times on birds eye view, and have been VERY intrigued, to say the least. I do find it hard to believe that it feels anything like a home inside, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m DYING to see the inside!

    Hugh Newell Jacobsen is one of my favorite architects, but this commission seems lacking in coherence compared to his other work. It probably works well as an art museum, but I’m not impressed as a residence, based on the limited pics. Still, a respectable trophy house, regardless.

    I REALLY wish I could see the interior of this place. Like I said above, I’ve seen this house a couple times while snooping around Beverly Hills on Bing’s birds eye view, and even though it doesn’t appeal to me personally, I’d love to see more.

    Like everyone else, I’d love to see the interior. But, the outside is not that interesting to me. I definitely see the pyramid inspiration, but from the air, the massing also reminds me of a castle. No matter what inspired HNJ, it’s very cold looking on the outside.

    This seems pretentious and ultimately gauche. It reminds me of the Architecture in Beetlejuice when they were pretending to be sophisticated and urbane.
