Charming Charlie founder buys in Bel-Air

Fashion entrepreneur Charlie Chanaratsopon has a new accessory: a multimillion-dollar home on the Westside. The founder and chief executive of Houston-based accessories retailer Charming Charlie recently paid $3.13 million for a home in Bel-Air.

Built in 1966 and recently remodeled, the multi-level home sits on nearly three quarters of an acre with city, mountain and reservoir views. An oversized deck with a swimming pool and pavilion extends from the main level of the home, and a staircase leads down through terraced grounds.

Nearly 3,300 square feet of interior space include a formal living room and separate dining area that share a two-sided fireplace. An updated kitchen has a contemporary vibe with gray-hued cabinetry and Miele appliances.


The master suite, with a fireplace and two walk-in closets, opens to a balcony overlooking the grounds. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms in all.

The house came up for sale last year for $3.795 million and was more recently listed at $3.26 million, records show.

Fariba Meskin of Nourmand & Associates represented both sides of the deal.

Chanaratsopon, in his mid-30s, founded Charming Charlie in 2004 and has since expanded to more than 250 stores nationwide. Last year, Forbes named the Loyola Marymount graduate one of its richest entrepreneurs under 40 with an estimated net worth of $425 million.
