With one too many homes and one of Hollywood’s busiest schedules, high-profile celebrity power couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have cut the price of their Beverly Hills mansion that was listed last summer for $23.95 million. The home is now on the market for $17.95 million.
The couple spent considerable time and money creating a unique style for the home that they bought from singer Rihanna in 2016. Major changes included transforming the color palette from cool to warm tones. The state-of-the art kitchen is the backdrop for Teigen’s cooking videos and includes three ovens, two stovetops and an island.
Built in 1966 and decorated in a contemporary style, the 8,520-square-foot home includes seven bedrooms with balconies and en-suite bathrooms. Drama begins at the entry with its 33-foot ceiling, a curving stairwell leading to a second-floor catwalk and a peek at the family room where Legend kept his grand piano.
A large sunken living room with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall offers views across Benedict Canyon. The primary suite showcases a brass-and-concrete fireplace, a balcony, his-and-her dressing rooms, walk-in closets and an Italian-inspired glam room. Other rooms include a gym and home theater.
Special finishes and decor include patterned ceilings from Thailand, oak floors, clay-and-steel-rolled walls, onyx sinks and Italian-quartz countertops. The outdoor entertainment area includes more canyon views from the pool terrace, which has a heated saltwater pool, jacuzzi, chef’s grill and wood-fired oven. A grapevine-wrapped pergola is the perfect spot for alfresco dining.
The home is listed with Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills, according to toptenrealestatedeals.com.
