The sprawling 21,000-square-foot LA property was designed by architect Paul McClean
As far as sought-after California architects go, Paul McClean ranks at the top of the list. The designer is behind Los Angeles’s most expensive home, The One—which is projected to hit the market for a mind-boggling $500 million—plus a slew of other enviable properties, including one for video game producer and director Jason Rubin. So it only makes sense that a listing like 1175 Billionaire’s Row, which was designed by McClean, is a remarkable one. The sprawling, 21,000-square-foot home is on the market for a staggering $60 million, complete with a dinosaur skeleton in the basement and a 12-car auto gallery that can be repurposed into an event space.
Situated in the prestigious Trousdale area of Beverly Hills, the locale is referred to as Billionaire’s Row because of its recent six-digit sales. Producer David Geffen, Minecraft creator Markus Persson and businessman Evan Metropoulos have all shelled out for property on the street in recent years, quickly transforming it into an enclave for the area’s wealthiest residents.
Steps away from this pool is the master bedroom, which also benefits from these vistas, and features both a his and hers bathroom and walk-in closet. The closets are meant to look like a boutique shop—a skylight above lets some natural light in. Even among such company, the 1175 address stands out as a real architectural feat. McClean designed the home to incorporate not one but two pools—one indoor and one outdoor. Much of the home revolves around these two amenities: Upstairs, the kitchen, living room and dining room all look out onto the 80-foot lap pool, which frames an unobstructed view of downtown.
