Fashion designer Robert Rodriguez looks to cut a tie in Beverly Hills
Fashion designer Robert Rodriguez has listed his home in the flats of Beverly Hills for sale at $18.95 million, public records show.
Set on a tree-lined street, the Spanish-style home dates to 1927 but recently underwent a three-year renovation and expansion. Now polished to a fine sheen, the 7,314 square feet of living space has herringbone-patterned wood floors, custom millwork and crisp white interiors. A pair of 20-foot-long skylights top the two-story entry.
Pocketing doors conceal a hidden bar in the step-down living room, which is anchored by a custom fireplace. The open-concept kitchen is equipped with an island, built-in booth seating and a butler’s pantry. Including a separate guesthouse, there are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
Outside, grounds of about a third of an acre contain a swimming pool with a spa, lawn and a dining patio.
Rodriguez gained recognition at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he received a Critics Award for Best Designer of the Year, before accepting a position at Christian Dior. He launched his own fashion line in 2003, which has gained a steady following among celebrities.
He bought the property three years ago for $8.7 million, records show.
Kurt Rappaport and Daniel Dill of Westside Estate Agency hold the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
