Fashion entrepreneur Charles Park is trying on a new outfit for size: speculative development. The designer behind such labels as Pure Sugar and Jonesy has listed a Beverly Hills home that he designed for $43.9 million.
Set on slightly more than an acre, the modern mansion was built in collaboration with Samuel and Paul Oh and architect Magdalena Glen-Schieneman. Among designer details are a pair of floating staircases, a 6-foot Mooi chandelier and more than $1 million in furnishings by B&B Italia, Minotti and Gandia Blasco. Adding to the over-the-top ambiance, an original Andy Warhol serves as a centerpiece in the front entry.
More than 14,100 square feet of polished interiors include a voluminous step-down living and dining room, a modern center-island kitchen, seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The master suite adjoins a full-service fitness center enclosed in Starphire glass.
Other perks include a 600-bottle wine cellar opened by way of a thumbprint recognition system, and a home theater complete with tiered seating and a Sony 4K projector. L’invisible bank vault doors front the in-house elevator.
On the main floor, glass magnetic doors measuring 33 feet in height slide to reveal an outdoor dining terrace that overlooks a 50-foot zero-edge swimming pool. A sunken fire pit, various patios, hedges and lawns complete the setting.
Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Realty, are the co-listing agents.
