Call it a closing act for Slash in Beverly Hills. The top hat-wearing rocker and his wife, Perla Hudson, have put their Tuscan-inspired villa on the market for $10.995 million.
The one-of-a-kind residence in the guard-gated Mulholland Estates lives up to its owner’s rock star status with alligator print wallpaper, cheetah print rugs and crystal chandeliers fashioned as pirate ships.
Clad in black ceilings, walls and carpet, a lower-level lounge features a nightclub, a DJ booth, a wet bar and a screening room with stadium seating. A separate recording studio has a bathroom and private patio.
The home also features a two-story entry, public areas with patterned wall treatments and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Formal living and dining rooms, a family room with a wet bar, a maid’s suite, a kitchen with two center islands, seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms are within the 11,000 square feet of living space.
Outdoors, the landscaped grounds center on a swimming pool and spa, set off by canyon and valley views. A large outdoor living room with a fireplace, a skate ramp and an organic vegetable garden complete the three-quarter of an acre setting.
Slash and Hudson, who are in the process of divorcing, paid $7.3 million for the home in 2009.
Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Previews International is the listing agent.
Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, rose to fame as a lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and later co-founded the supergroup Velvet Revolver. The 49-year-old was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N’ Roses in 2012.
Hudson is the creator of a lifestyle channel on YouTube. She will debut a fashion and design blog geared toward Latin American women later this year.
Mossimo takes on Charles Bronson
Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have bought a house in Bel-Air for $13.995 million.
The neo-classical Mediterranean was once owned by the late tough-guy actor Charles Bronson and his second wife, English actress and singer Jill Ireland.
Overlooking the second green of the Bel-Air Country Club, the 1929 home was designed by architect Roland E. Coate, who left his mark on homes of note in wealthy pockets throughout Los Angeles County as well as the landmark Automobile Club of Southern California building on Figueroa Street near USC.
The 12,000 square feet of living space at Loughlin and Giannulli’s new house is entered through a vaulted two-story foyer with a sweeping, wrought-iron staircase. High coffered ceilings grace the living room and bar room. Steps lead down to the family room.
The wine room can hold about 5,000 bottles.
The master suite has a sitting room, dual bathrooms and dual closets for a total of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The nearly three-quarters of an acre of park-like grounds contain tiered gardens, mature trees, an outdoor pavilion and an enclosed patio with a saltwater pool and spa.
Loughlin, 50, gained fame on the late 1980s and early ‘90s sitcom “Full House” and more recently was in the series “90210" and “When the Heart Calls.” She’ll star in the 2016 reboot series “Fuller House.”
Giannulli, 52, founded the worldwide clothing line bearing his first name.
They sold their Beverly Hills home of five years in April for $18,246,500 in an off-market deal, public records show.
Bronson and Ireland, who met on the set of “The Great Escape” in 1962, purchased the Bel-Air residence after their 1968 wedding. The house last sold two decades ago for $3.573 million.
Richard Ehrlich and Stephen Shapiro of Westside Estate Agency were the listing agents. Ron de Salvo of Coldwell Banker represented Loughlin and Giannulli.
Film stars part with marital home
Actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have sold their marital home in Hancock Park for $15.947 million.
Known as the Isidor Eisner Estate for its first owner, the 1925 mansion was designed by Hoover Dam architect Gordon B. Kaufmann. Griffith and Banderas combined two properties to create the 1.5-acre site.
The Italian Revival-style home draws the eye up with its hand-stenciled coffered ceilings, vaulted beams and wood-paneled ceilings. Grand spaces that hearken back to the days of gracious living include the two-story banquet hall. There’s also a two-story kitchen.
A paneled library, a recording studio, a gym, an elevator, four fireplaces, 13 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms are also within the 15,110 square feet of living space on three stories. Multiple balconies bring in views of the gardens.
A stone driveway, expansive lawns, rose and vegetable garden and a courtyard swimming pool complete the grounds.
Griffith, 57, appears in the 2015 films “Out of Days” and “Facing the Wind” as well as the TV movie “Nerd Herd.” She starred in “Crazy in Alabama” (1999), “Lolita” (1997) and “Working Girl” (1988).
Banderas, 54, is known for such films as “Desperado” (1995) and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” (2003). He will star in several films this year including “Altamira” and “The 33.” His recent sci-fi film “Automata” costarred Griffith.
The actors bought the main property for $4.2 million in 1999, public records show, and in 2000 spent $1.3 million for an adjacent lot. Griffith filed for a divorce last year.
Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, was the listing agent. Jonah Wilson, also with Hilton & Hyland, represented the buyer.
J. Lo’s old place hits right note
Singer Phil Collins has bought the onetime Miami Beach mansion of Jennifer Lopez for $33 million.
The seller was healthcare executive Mark Gainor and his wife, Elyse, who bought the property from Lopez a decade ago.
The 1.2-acre waterfront estate centers on a renovated 1929 villa with 200 feet of waterfront including a boat dock along Biscayne Bay.
The contemporary European-style mansion is entered through a two-story domed rotunda foyer topped by a skylight. A media room, a wine cellar, a gym, seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and three powder rooms are included in the 12,153 square feet of living space.
A courtyard with a koi pond, gardens, palm trees and water-facing swimming pool and spa complete the grounds.
Collins, 64, is known for his solo work and as lead singer and drummer with the group Genesis. The seven-time Grammy winner, who announced his retirement in 2011, is one of the all-time bestselling recording artists.
Actress, dancer and singer Lopez, 45, is currently trying to find a buyer for her three-acre estate in the gated Southern California community of Hidden Hills.
Nelson Gonzalez of EWM Realty/Christie’s International Real Estate was the listing agent. Mathieu Rochette of Barclay’s Real Estate Group represented Collins.
‘Avenger’ sees action on Hollywood throwback
Actors and home renovators Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters have sold their latest project in Hollywood Hills for $4.3 million.
Built in 1926, the traditional-style house was once home to early filmmaker Preston Sturges, who helped define the screwball comedy genre in the 1930s and won an original screenplay Oscar for “The Great McGinty” in 1940.
Renovated and restored, the two-story home features an 1,800-square-foot great room with the original copper-topped bar and a fireplace — a nod to its Old Hollywood grandeur. A family room, an updated kitchen and a formal living room with a marble-lined fireplace are included in the 7,000 square feet of living space.
There are a total of five bedrooms and six bathrooms, while a detached guesthouse adds another kitchen, a dining area and three bedroom en suites in 1,200 square feet of space.
Outdoors, a rooftop terrace takes in views of the cityscape and landscaped grounds with a fountain feature.
The property previously sold in 2009 for $1.35 million. It came on the market in February for $4.795 million and was offered furnished.
Branden Williams and Rayni Romito Williams of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, were the listing agents.
