The home famed celebrity photographer Herb Ritts called home has hit the market, perched above the Sunset Strip. This exquisite private estate boasts generous accommodations including five bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths, a large chef-equipped kitchen and breakfast room outfitted with custom cherry wood cabinetry, Sub Zero & Viking appliances plus a lounging area overlooking the front garden. All public rooms are situated on the main entry floor, surrounded by a large wraparound terrace accessed via steel and glass French doors that enhance the indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The living room/library conceals a hidden surround sound theater, discreetly installed to preserve the Midcentury aesthetic. The private quarters are situated downstairs, featuring four bedrooms and three baths, plus a separate au-pair or housekeeper’s bedroom accessible from the exterior side garden entrance. Outside, the private yard presents specimen trees, a midnight-blue pool, and a cabana complete with a kitchen and full bath, providing an ideal space for relaxation, entertainment or a guest sleepover as the sixth bedroom. Architect’s plans exist for a two-story ADU/guest house to be built next to the pool area. These plans are current and ready to submit to City of L.A. for building. Preparation for a Tesla Roof that can power the entire house “off grid” has also been accomplished.
