TV producer Steven Bochco’s Pacific Palisades estate lists for $35 million

The longtime home of Steven Bochco — the late TV producer behind shows such as “Hill Street Blues” and “L.A. Law” — has surfaced for sale at $35 million in Pacific Palisades. The traditional-style estate has a few good things going for it. First off, it was built in 1937 by Paul R. Williams, the iconic architect who worked on thousands of projects across Southern California during his prolific career that included the Beverly Hills Hotel and LAX’s iconic Theme Building. The property also sits on a double-lot with 1.4 acres, making it one of only a handful of homes currently on the market in the Palisades with more than an acre. There’s also a bit of celebrity pedigree, as the estate was once owned by actor Sylvester Stallone. Bochco bought it in 1997 and died in 2018. His estate is overseeing the sale. Tucked behind gates and surrounded by a masonry wall for extra privacy, the property centers on a 10,853-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms spread across two stories. Warm woods and white walls mix in the living spaces, and the kitchen adds some flair with a brick fireplace and breakfast nook topped by a rotunda. Another rotunda hangs above the foyer, which features walls of windows and a sweeping staircase. Other highlights include a library, wine cellar, private guest wing and family room with a projector. Gardens and grass surround a swimming pool and spa out back. A guesthouse, cabana and tennis court complete the scene.

Ariana Grande gives glimpse into marriage with rare pic, video of husband

The pop star and Dalton Gomez tied the knot in May 2021. Ariana Grande gave fans a glimpse into married life with husband Dalton Gomez. On Wednesday, the pop star, 28, shared a blurry photo of her hugging Gomez, 26, while wearing a lacy black dress and her signature matching stilettos. The Instagram post also included a short clip of the newlyweds kissing under the moonlight while Grande kicked her foot in the air. In the caption, she simply added an arrow-through-heart emoji. Fans and friends expressed their love for the couple in the comments. Former “Victorious” co-star Daniella Monet wrote, “V cute” along with two white heart emoji. Octavia Spencer gushed, “Gorgeous you two!!!!” The post was an unexpected look into Grande’s married life considering she rarely opens up about her relationship with Gomez. The two tied the knot in May 2021 and have kept their romance pretty private ever since. “It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people. The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier,” Grande’s representative told NBC News about the wedding. At the time, both TMZ and People also reported that the wedding occurred at the couple’s home in Montecito, California. The ceremony came just five months after they confirmed their engagement. The “Voice” coach revealed she was engaged to Gomez after 11 months of dating on Instagram. She uploaded a series of photos of them cuddling and also showed off her diamond and pearl engagement ring. “Forever n then some,” she captioned the adorable snaps. She has also praised her husband in a few other, blurry Instagram posts. Gomez works in real estate at the luxury firm Aaron Kirman Group in Beverly Hills, Calif. According to the company's website, Gomez is the director of the estates division. https://www.today.com/popculture/popculture/ariana-grande-shares-rare-pic-video-husband-dalton-gomez-rcna16587

Tesla’s Chief Designer Pays $51 Million for Adam Levine’s Palisades Estate

If you’re among the 1.27 million people who pre-ordered the upcoming Cybertruck and have a hankering to see one in the flesh, you may want to scoot on over to Pacific Palisades. There’s a decent chance one of the first examples off the assembly line will be tooling around the posh Riviera section of town, where Cybertruck lead designer Franz von Holzhausen and his wife have just bought a sumptuous compound, in a $51 million deal initially reported by the L.A. Times. Of course, von Holzhausen isn’t “just” the Cybertruck guy. Elon Musk’s stalwart sidekick has been Tesla’s chief of design since 2008 — since before Tesla was even a thing, practically — and designed all of the brand’s most successful models, including the Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y. Before joining Tesla, the Connecticut native worked for General Motors, where he met fellow automotive designer Vicki (née Vlachakis), a Pasadena, Calif. native who is now founder and owner of the sleek Von Holzhausen fashion line. The couple’s new home was sold by Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo, who first put the place up for grabs less than two months ago, asking $57.5 million. While the final sales price represents an 11% discount, it’s still a whopping $19 million more than the Prinsloo-Levines paid for the place just over three years ago. It’s also believed to be the fifth-priciest L.A. home sale this year, behind only the $126 million that Fashion Nova’s owner paid for Bel Air’s The One megamansion, Drake’s $75 million splurge, the $70 million a Hong Kong billionaire paid in Beverly Park, and Adele’s $58 million deal to buy Sly Stallone’s estate. Set on a verdant three-acre lot in what is arguably the poshest pocket of the Palisades Riviera, von Holzhausen’s new estate has a unique, only-in-L.A. sort of history. The nearly 9,000-square-foot main house was originally built in the late 1930s and designed by beloved California architect Cliff May, and was reportedly once owned by Gregory Peck. In the 2000s, the property came to be owned by powerful Hollywood producer Brian Grazer, who installed what is perhaps the property’s most fascinating feature — a four-bedroom guesthouse that actually lies mostly underground, sitting bunker-style below the back lawn. (Yes, it would make the ultimate studio for top-secret car design meetings, or perhaps a state-of-the-art Bond villain lair.) Grazer sold the estate in ’09 for $17.6 million to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who lived there during the entirety of their marriage and for some years afterward, with Garner occupying the main house and Affleck shacking up in the guesthouse. They sold the property in 2019 for $32 million to Levine and Prinsloo, who subsequently hired celebrity interior designers Tommy and Kathy Clements to redo the place. The resulting decor, minimalist and demure in a pared-down sort of way, is seen in photos below and was also featured in Architectural Digest, in the form of a video tour hosted by the owners themselves. Although von Holzhausen’s net worth does not seem to be a matter of public knowledge, and the elusive designer rarely gives interviews, he’s been with Tesla since before the company went public in 2010. In the 12 years since, the trillion-dollar company has become the world’s most valuable automaker, and someone who invested $1,000 back in 2010 would now be sitting on as much as $120,000. So it’s probably a fair guess that von Holzhausen and his family are already set for life — and probably several more lifetimes beyond, too.
