New York Giants chairman and Hollywood producer Steve Tisch has touched down in Beverly Hills, buying a Midcentury home in the Trousdale area for $10.05 million. The seller was the estate of late music manager Jordan Feldstein.
Set behind fences and gates, the Robert Skinner-designed home is an example of the International style. Strong horizontal lines, bands of steel-framed casement windows and walls of glass are among visually dramatic features of the home, built in 1962. Raised ceilings and an open-plan layout create a sense of light, volume and flow.
Within more than 6,300 square feet of interior is a two-story great room with a centerpiece fireplace, a loft den-office, a home theater and a chef’s kitchen. The master suite — one of five bedrooms and six bathrooms — has a sitting room.
Outside, the nearly one-acre property holds a sunken terrace, a fire pit and a swimming pool. Landscaping and palms complete the setting.
Rona Passman of Hilton & Hyland was the listing agent. Max Shapiro of Westside Estate Agency represented the buyer.
Tisch, 69, has scores of credits as a film and television producer, including the Oscar-winning film “Forrest Gump” (1995), “American History X” (1998) and “The Equalizer” (2014). The son of former Giants co-owner Bob Tisch, he was named chairman and executive vice president of the New York franchise in 2005.
