Mr. Paris's Pad, Estate of the Day
Ah to be young, rich and impossibly foolish. The Real Estalker Mama alerted us to the fact that Paris Latsis, known best here in the states as Mr. Paris the erstwhile fiance of one Paris Hilton, has put his home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area on the market for $15 million. Mr. Paris is part of the Latsis family, a Greek shipping family.
The five-bedroom home is over 7,000 square feet of modern showiness with big glass windows, a floating steel and glass staircase and a master suite with 180-degree views. Everything is designed to make an impression. It's a big show-off of a house done up in young Hollywood pop style with brightly colored art work (including the sadly ubiquitous Marilyn Monroe). The infinity pool and spa is perched on the side of a hill for a big splashy place to tempt saline-inflated starlets.
Mr. Paris bought the home on Beverly Crest Drive for $9.2 million in 2006 so he's looking for a big return in a not-so-firm market. It's a beautiful home despite that it looks like Latsis and his minions went to HD Buttercup and ordered up the Hollywood douchebag collection (it's not so much the furniture itself, which I like, it's just that it seems as if he ordered it all at once and threw it in). I'm smitten with all the glass and love the skylights. And while the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen are a little much who can resist an entire wall of food and beverage options.
