You already own at least eight houses scattered across the country. But the famous power couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are still expanding their collection, this time spending $ 11.3 million on a large mansion in Hidden Hills – the gated community where everyone from Drake and Kaley Cuoco to Kylie Jenner and Jeffree Live Star.
The two-story home was newly built last year due to speculation, has over 10,000 square feet of living space, and is listed as a “Napa Modern” home. The property, completed in early 2020 and built on speculation, has been on the market since June last year; The Smiths obtained the keys for a discount of nearly $ 1 million off the original price of $ 12.2 million.
Privately located at the end of a discreet cul-de-sac behind a long driveway, the 1.2-acre property sits on a ridge overlooking a sizable portion of the San Fernando Valley. Inside, the completely neutral interior is uniformly contemporary and includes a double-height entrance area with lines of sight through the entire house, an open kitchen with two islands and a large pantry, a soundproofed cinema with velvet walls and a playroom with wet bar. There’s also a fitness room with its own steam shower, as well as a formal dining room with a chilled glass wine cabinet.
All six bedrooms in the house are en-suite, and the master suite on the upper floor also has a fireplace, sitting area, two dressing rooms and a built-in refrigerator and coffee bar. Outside, stone loggias are ripe for outdoor entertainment and lead to a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with barbecue and an infinity pool with a sunken spa. Also in the back is a seating area with a fireplace, a full-size sports field, and something that is referred to in the listing as the “relaxation lounge”. Surprisingly, the property doesn’t have a large grassy back yard or even a lot of landscaping other than trees surrounding the perimeter of the property. But that should save the Smiths money on maintenance costs, so that’s it.
The story goes on
Presumably, the new owners will hire an interior designer to transform the mansion’s luxurious rooms into something more avant-garde. The couple’s long-time primary residence, a $ 42 million mega-property on the outskirts of Calabasas, featured in Architectural Digest and features a striking Moroccan-inspired interior with rich colors and eclectic furnishings.
Keen real estate watchers may know that this new acquisition isn’t the only Smith family estate within the guarded gates of Hidden Hills. They have owned another property in Hidden Hills since 2003, this a ranch-style property on a secluded street that was long inhabited by their son, Jaden Smith. And last year daughter Willow Smith paid $ 3.1 million for a modern home in the Malibu hills.
The clan also owns homes in Woodland Hills, California, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. And they have a nearly 10,000 square foot ski chalet in the Park City, Utah ski resort.
Marc and Sarah Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties held the listing; Mia Pitts from the Exquisite Life Group of the New Republic Real Estate Group represented the buyers.
