Vidal Sassoon's Home for sale in Beverly Hills

Love the private bridge to the Master Bedroom!

1163 Calle Vista Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
5 BR, 7 BA

Vidal Sassoon was the most influential hairstylist of the 1960s–inventing the precision bob and wash & wear hair, freeing women of shalaqued, overly styled hairdos. Sassoon is a lover of architecture, as well as hair. In late 2004, he purchased a Richard Neutra-designed house in Bel Air and oversaw its renovation. And he recently put his 6,189 square foot mid-century architectural home on the market.

The home was designed by Hal Levitt in 1962–the same architect who designed Jennifer Aniston’s Beverly Hill’s remodel. This house is located on one of Beverly Hills’ most prestigious streets and has been featured in numerous publications.

The gated home sits at the end of a long private driveway and features spectacular unobstructed city to ocean views. The home features beautifully high ceilings, walls of glass, and incredible space for art. There is also a magnificent pool, gardens and a guesthouse.

The Round House

 How cool would it be to have a view in every room of this house?

122 Olmstead Hill Rd
Wilton, Connecticut 06897
3 BR, 2.5 BA

 The Round House in Wilton, Connecticut is on the market for $1.75 million. Designed by the renowned architect Richard T. Foster assisted by Philip Johnson in 1967, this home was fully renovated in 2005. Walled in glass, this circular house can rotate 360 degrees, capturing beautiful landscaping and water views. This place is very space age; it looks like a landing spaceship to me. It seems impossible that the tiny base supports the entire home, but apparently it works.

The Round House is 2,997 square feet and sits on 3.83 acres. If features a security system, beautiful hardwood flooring, a separate guesthouse, and even an in-ground pool.

Silver Lake would be a cool place to live!

On our way to The Griffith Observatory, my family took a small detour through the Silver Lake Community. There were so many mid-century modern homes, we were in heaven. The community has a very hip and eclectic vibe. This year Silver Lake will hosts it's 30th Annual Sunset Junction Street Fair which will be held on August 21st & 22nd. Looks like lots of fun!
