Philippe Naouri - a.k.a. the Vintage Denim King - turned his denim blue sights on houses, and his Hollywood Hills glass box, just listed for sale at $3,185,000, is the result.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home that he redesigned has 180-degree views and an open floor plan. There are walls of glass, a gourmet kitchen, Italian flooring and a designer bath in the master suite. The outdoor media center includes a barbecue area, bar and viewing terraces. The house has about 2,200 square feet.
A perk of the neighborhood is that the lucky buyer could very likely rub elbows with the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who live on the same street, or Justin Timberlake, whose estate is just above.
Naouri, who grew up in the south of France, was a cofounderof Antik Denim, whose vintage-styled jeans, T-shirts, boots and belts have donned the red-carpet bodies ofÃÂ Johnny Depp, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz,ÃÂ Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
Mia Trudeu and Aaron Kirman, both of Hilton & Highland, Beverly Hills, co-listed the property.
