A place to hang Pharrell’s hat
Singer-songwriter-producer Pharrell Williams has joined the throng of celebrity home buyers in Hollywood Hills West with the purchase of a contemporary compound for $7.14million.
The striking concrete-and-glass house was designed by architect Hagy Belzberg, knownfor his sleek homes andwork on such projects as the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Called the Skyline Residence, the structure is a singular home for a singular musician.
Pharrell, who goes by just his first name, is an 11-time Grammy Award winner. Among his monster hits was the single “Happy” fromthe animatedmovie “Despicable Me 2.”
Set on1.5 acres on a narrow ridge line, the main house brings in views of Laurel Canyon and downtown L.A. Living and dining rooms, a breakfast area and maid’s quarters are among the living spaces.
Including a detached guesthouse, there are seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two powder rooms. Tax records show 4,415 square feet of interior space— plenty of room for the hat-wearing musician to stash his lids.
Outdoor amenities include a theater and an infinity pool.
The property previously sold in 2009 for $5.6 million and came on the market in January for $8.995 million.
Justine Mandile and Billy Rose, both with the Agency, were the listing agents. Sedonna Norman of Berkshire Hathaway Home-Services California Properties represented Pharrell.
