Top sales: Kym Gold sells her designer digs in Malibu for $18.45 million

The Malibu home of a fashion entrepreneur, a reimagined Hacienda in Santa Monica and the onetime Bel-Air house of a Hollywood composer were among the priciest residential real estate sales in the greater Los Angeles area this past week.

$18.45 million — Malibu

Kym Gold, the cofounder of True Religion Jeans, sold her ocean-view home in the 24000 block of Pacific Coast Highway for $8.05 million less than the $26.5 million it was listed for in January.

Built in 2001, the single-story Spanish-style hacienda features a courtyard entry, reclaimed wood finishes and commanding views of the surrounding coastline.

Sunlit interiors with cathedral-style ceilings and distressed beams include formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen, a studio, an office, a gym, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Three imported stone fireplaces are within 6,616 square feet of living space.

Outdoors, grounds of more than an acre have a resort-style vibe with a paddle tennis court, putting green and a swimming pool and spa. A private pathway leads down to the beach below.

Gold bought the house with her ex-husband, fashion entrepreneur and former True Religion Chief Executive Jeff Lubell, in 2005 for $7.8 million, records show.

Amy Alcini and Anthony Paradise of Sotheby’s International Realty were the listing agents. Pamella Whitham, also of Sotheby’s, represented the buyer.

$12,112,500 — Santa Monica

A reimagined 1920s Hacienda-style home in the 400 block of Adelaide Drive sold after coming to market in September for $14.95 million.

Melding traditional and contemporary elements, the two-story house behind gates is distinguished by open-plan areas, sliding glass walls and a hangar-style entertainment area with 20-foot ceilings designed by architect Steven Ehrlich.

Within the 9,694 square feet of living space are formal living and dining rooms, a galley-style kitchen, a glass-enclosed office, five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Arched doors and windows, wide-plank wood floors and pendant lighting are among the interior details.

Grounds of more than half an acre include a swimming pool and spa, a motor court and a two-car garage. A two-story detached guest house completes the setting.

Susan Perryman of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, was the listing agent. Veronica Klein of Gibson International repped the buyer.

$8.75 million — Bel-Air

In the 1100 block of Brooklawn Drive, a contemporary-style home formerly owned by John Ottman, who wrote the music scores for such films as “Superman Returns” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” sold for 1.25 million less than the August list price.

Set behind a gated driveway on about half an acre, the 5,300-square-foot house has a museum-like quality with double-height living areas, gallery walls and skylights throughout.

Two floors of open-plan living include a living room with rows of French doors that open to a swimming pool and spa. A dining room, a chef’s kitchen, a family room, five bedrooms and five bathrooms are among the other living spaces.

Benjamin Bacal of Rodeo Realty and Jill Epstein of Nourmand & Associates, Beverly Hills, were the listing agents. Dustin Cumming and Monty Beisel of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.

$7.8 million — Brentwood

In the 500 block of North Rockingham Avenue, a Tudor-style home on about half an acre sold in 18 days for $805,000 more than the $6.995-million asking price.

Set on a flat lot, the 1920s home has a circular motor court and two gated entrances.

Within the 3,201 square feet of living space is a living room with cathedral-style ceilings, a sun room, a den with a wet bar and a large playroom. The master suite has a sitting room and a fireplace for a total of four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

Outdoors, there’s a swimming pool set within a brick patio. Elsewhere on the grounds, a gazebo-topped sitting area takes in canyon views.

Anne Leeds of Gibson International had the listing. Santiago Arana of The Agency repped the buyer.

$5.725 million — Rancho Palos Verdes

A contemporary-style home on more than an acre in the 3200 block of Via Campesina sold for $274,000 less than the August list price.

Perched above the Palos Verdes Golf Club, the house was built in 2005 and has 6,315 square feet of living space in a single story.

Vaulted ceilings, Travertine and Brazilian walnut floors feature prominently in the home, which has five bedrooms spread across three separate wings. Public rooms include a center-island kitchen, a living room with a fireplace and a meditation room. There are 3.5 bathrooms and a powder room.

Sliding glass doors open to landscaped grounds with a lawn and a waterfall feature that feeds into a koi pond.
