The singer, songwriter and producer is actually taking a loss on the Los Angeles house
Hip-hop star Pharrell Williams has just unloaded his uber-contemporary glass-covered mansion in Beverly Hills, California, for an eight-figure sum.
The property, which drew less than favorable comparisons to an office building when it first emerged on the market in March, sold Tuesday for $14 million, according to listing records.
Despite the payday, Mr. Williams, 47, is taking a loss on the spread.
The singer, songwriter and producer purchased the property in 2018 for $15.6 million from producer and actor Tyler Perry, Mansion Global previously reported, and had listed the home for $16.95 million.
Spanning more than 17,000 square feet, the estate “was designed precisely for entertaining,” and has “endless potential,” according to the listing with Kurt Rappaport and Drew Meyers of Westside Estate Agency.
The pair did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Its 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms are joined by floor-to-ceiling windows galore, a 200-foot-long driveway with a motor court that can accommodate more than 30 vehicles, koi ponds, a tennis court, a grotto and waterfalls, according to the listing.
A deed for the transaction is not yet available in public records and as such, the new owner of the property remains a mystery.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the sale.
A second glass-covered home belonging to Mr. Williams in Los Angeles remains on the market.
The low lying, glass-and-wood-encased spread perched above the city in the Hollywood Hills has been asking $11.95 million since May. It has five bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, an infinity pool and a two-story detached guest house.
A representative for Mr. Williams, who has won 13 Grammy Awards and has been nominated twice for an Academy Award, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
