After selling $ 87 million Malibu Estate, LA Socialite downsized to $ 13 million Hidden Hills Mansion
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reportedly has a new cast member, Diana Jenkins. The 48-year-old native Bosnian was spotted filming the show with long-time “RHOBH” stars Lisa Rinna and Dorit Kemsley last week. (For the record, Bravo has yet to formally confirm or deny Jenkins’ alleged inclusion in the cast.)
But like many of the other women on Bravo’s hit TV show, Jenkins isn’t actually a housewife. By the way, she doesn’t live in Beverly Hills either. The divorcee had previously lived in Malibu for a long time before selling her $ 87 million home to her neighbor earlier this year. And the longtime celebrity – who was previously quoted as saying “Money is a wonderful thing”. I love to make it and I love to spend it. ”- has since lost $ 13 million on a smaller estate in the gated community of Hidden Hills, deep in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.
Sanela Diana Jenkins, who was born in Bosnia, emigrated to London in the 1990s after the Bosnian War. In the mid-2000s, Jenkins moved from London to California, where she has stayed since; in California, in particular, she founded Neuro, a popular energy drinks company. Most of her fortune, however, comes from her marriage to famous English financier Roger “Big Dog” Jenkins, who was once the highest paid banker in Britain. The couple divorced in 2012 and Diana was granted full ownership of the couple’s Malibu estate on beautiful Paradise Cove.
Today, Jenkins is a divorced mom with two teenage children. She also shares a toddler daughter with her much younger boyfriend, 33-year-old aspiring musician Asher Monroe.
As for these new digs in Hidden Hills, the 13,000-square-foot mansion sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the prestigious Ashley Ridge section of Hidden Hills. The seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home was speculatively built in 2019 and sold the following year for $ 10.8 million to Shalini Gupta, a Harvard dermatologist from Ohio who put the home back up for sale almost immediately. Then there was Jenkins, who paid $ 13 million in cash – a profit of $ 2.2 million for Gupta before taxes, expenses and brokerage commissions.
The story goes on
The anthracite-colored building has a double high foyer, a so-called “floating” staircase and oak floors with a chevron pattern everywhere. A large room connects to the gourmet kitchen, which is equipped with two stone islands and first-class appliances. There is also a study / library with built-in bookshelves as well as a temperature controlled wine cabinet, wet bar, soundproof movie theater, gym and state of the art security system as indicated in the listing. Upstairs, the primary suite has two bathrooms and two wardrobes, and there are six additional en-suite bedrooms for guests, family members, and / or employees.
Expansive views of the surrounding hills and the dark-bottomed rear pool are infinitely bordered for maximum visual drama. Jenkins’ new home is also right across from the $ 9.5 million primary residence of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, and it’s also right next to a huge mansion owned by disgraced Nickelodeon executive Dan Schneider. Other people close to Sugar Loan include Jeffree Star, Darkchild, and the side-by-side houses of Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner.
Josh and Matt Altman of the Altman Brothers team at Douglas Elliman held the Hidden Hills list; Tyrone McKillen and Sandeep Dhariwal from Compass represented the buyer.
