Prolific architect Richard Landry has designed homes for countless stars: Tom Brady, Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, Dr. Dre and Kylie Jenner, to name a few. But the house he custom-built for himself in Brentwood might be the most stylish of them all. The architectural estate, which fuses French, English and California contemporary styles, just sold in an off-market deal for $19.5 million. Landry picked up the empty property for $5.1 million in 2015 and spent the next few years designing and building the one-of-a-kind residence. In an interview with Luxe, he declared the home a compromise: dramatic, contemporary features for him surrounded by stately, traditional spaces for his husband, Chris Drugan. The result is a tangle of influences, an entirely unique creation with feet that straddle different centuries and styles. The dichotomy begins outside, where a stainless-steel cube covered in metallic paint slices across a traditional brick façade. Inside, steel beams cut through skylights that top a two-story atrium. The main level also includes an indoor-outdoor dining room, colorful kitchen with two marble islands and masculine office bathed in shades of gray.
The deal was a record for the city’s leafy Brentwood neighborhood The “king of the megamansion” has sold his own Los Angeles megamansion for $19.5 million, according to Compass, which handled the deal. Last week’s sale of the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom abode is a record for the leafy L.A. neighborhood of Brentwood, according to listing agents Morgan Trent and Aaron Kirman of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass. The home was sold in an off-market deal, and Mansion Global could not independently confirm the sales details, including the identity of the buyer. “As much as I’d love to take credit for setting a record, Richard did all the hard work,” Mr. Trent said, adding that serious buyers were able to tour the home with the architect. “Even during the final walkthrough, Richard was pointing out things I didn’t even know were there.” More: Five Beach Home Hot Spots That Aren’t the Hamptons Since founding the Landry Design Group in 1987, Mr. Landry, 65, has helmed the design of megamansions for a long list of celebrities including Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg, Dr. Dre, Sugar Ray Leonard and Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. “There are very few times we’re able to see such a well-known architect design a project for himself,” Mr. Trent said. “The detail throughout is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Part of that is because [Mr. Landry] works on a different wavelength, but also because money was not a deterrent.” The architect included a number of features he’s suggested to clients over the years, the agent added. For example, the primary bedroom suite has a shower and bathtub area—complete with retractable glass doors—just below a rooftop garden.
Exuding timeless elegance, 22 Oakmont Drive is a welcome alternative to the ultra-modern, new construction homes typically found in Los Angeles. The eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom residence by custom home builder Heltzer Development Group lnc hit the market last week for $25,900,000. The exterior is European Farmhouse-inspired, combining natural stone, board and batten siding, black-framed windows and standing seam metal roofing. A gated driveway covered with oversized, permeable concrete pavers leads the way to an attached, three-car garage with carriage-style doors. A handsome entry door opens onto a double-height foyer with a curvilinear staircase and white oak hardwood flooring laid in a herringbone pattern. Off to the right is a formal living room with coffered ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a marble-topped bar featuring an antiqued glass mirror backsplash. Providing enough space for an eight-seater table, the dining room is anchored by a sculptural chandelier and offers a convenient connection to the chef’s kitchen. Heading down the hallway, you’ll discover an open-concept space designed for cooking, eating and entertaining. The family room is a master class in laid-back luxury, complete with a cozy fireplace, built-in shelving, and a flatscreen TV disguised by a dark surround.
Former NFL cornerback-turned luxury agent Morgan Trent will serve in the role of managing director for the new market.
Compass luxury broker Aaron Kirman has launched a dedicated Orange County team, tapping former NFL cornerback Morgan Trent and his eight-person group to the expansion effort. Trent Luxury, which formed in May, will now enter an Orange County market that has seen a surge in pricey home sales, as has much of Southern California. Kirman announced the move last week. Trent has been with Beverly Hills-based Aaron Kirman Group since early 2018. Kirman said the OC team doesn’t have a physical office, but plans include opening one in the next year. The team intends to scale up to around 50 brokers, Kirman said, an ambitious goal considering the Kirman Group’s total broker count now stands at around 85. “We’re expanding, but selectively,” he added.
