If you like your martinis shaken, not stirred, if you need a sleek storage spot for your fine autos, and if you have a taste for modern design, a Los Angeles property will certainly rev up your interest.
On the market for $62 million, this modern marvel is the week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®.
The listing details, paying their respects to Ian Fleming’s creation, secret agent 007, refer to the mansion as the “Bond house of the future.” It offers plenty of James Bond-level high-tech wizardry, as well as perks for a car aficionado, including a 15-car auto gallery, a model race track, and a race car simulator.
Built in 2018, the phenomenal property was designed by the Seattle-based architecture firm Olson Kundig for Kipp Nelson, partner at Long Arc Capital and a former competitor in Formula Three racing, the Wall Street Journal notes.
Nelson’s custom abode was six years in the making. After he found the site in 2014, he purchased the property for $12 million and then began the long process of constructing this sleek, stylish home.
The end result is an organic blend of wood, stone, glass, and concrete set upon a promontory with panoramic views of L.A.
“[It] is valuable for many reasons,” says listing agent Rayni Williams, of Williams & Williams. She cited the work of award-wining architect Tom Kundig as a primary value driver and added, “I’ve seen a lot of L.A. homes, and we have yet to see a home like this.”
With 15,642 square feet of living space, the three-story layout includes five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
The home has hidden panels that reveal design features at the touch of a button, with moving walls that extend or close off rooms, open glass doors outside, and close shutters. Designed for entertaining, the compound can host up to 250 guests at a time.
The master suite was described in Architectural Digest as a “sexy lookout tower” and is open to views on three sides. It features a walkway to a gym and private views from a rooftop terrace.
From the main living space, so-called guillotine doors open out to a deck with a fireplace, lounge, and an “array of pools,” according to the listing description. The property is surrounded by 125-year-old olive trees.
On the lower level, the car-lover’s fantasy can be found, with the auto storage gallery, Formula One simulator, and race car track, named Kippway, after the owner. There’s also a home theater and wine cellar for less adrenaline-laced pursuits.
Branden Williams and Rayni Williams, of Williams & Williams, hold the listing.
